    take a gap year and apply for maths. Economics is crap anyway
    Yh right, why do maths when i would have to bust a gut doing step, and do the same course as some certain waste man. Besides, the study of DRC is insane when compared to Major maths topics like FP2.

    I'm not sure if you remember this, but at the UCL open day they said that they are a bit lenient grades wise as long as you haven't firmed LSE and insured UCL. If you firm Oxbridge and put UCL as an insurance then they said they can be lenient.
    Why is that they are not lenient if you have firmed LSE? Rivalry?

    Yh, DRC man! seriously, the way it is so interesting to learn about the micro economics of DRC... Economics is still better than maths - you guys need to be more HUMBLE, thinking you can do S3 and C4 and M1 ...

    If you can't do maths, do physics. If you can't do physics, do engineering. If you can't to engineering, do chemistry. If you can't do chemistry do geography. If you can't do geography do history. If you can't do history, do media. If you can't do media, do photography. If you can't do photography, do sport science. If you can't do sport science, do economics

    I thought they said that if you firmed them they would take AAA following an A*AA offer and if you didn't firm and missed the grades they wouldn't accept you.

    I really wish I could put them as my insurance but for now I'm working towards 3A*'s to be safe

    Well I think it's because they think their econ courses are very similar in terms of reputation but I'm not entirely sure

    Oh... I'm sure they said something along the lines of 'if your firm Oxbridge we understand but if you firm LSE then we won't be lenient if you miss your grades'.

    Haha good plan but I'm sure you'll be fine anyway
