    Hope you remember me, ninjapanda

    So I *think* I have narrowed down my 5 choices. Warwick, Nottingham, Birmingham, Glasgow, Leicester.. Although, I have queen marys competing with birmingham for the third spot and manchester competing with glasgow for fourth.

    Anyone here has a opinion on queen mary? They pushed up their entry requirements to AAA from AAB just this year, seems to have great graduate prospects and is the only on-campus uni in london. besides that, i don't know much, im afraid..

    glasgow's campus looks like freaking hogwartssss.
    Woo hey!

    Yay two the same as me, warwick and notts woo, so you're a campus fan like me then

    I would say with Birmingham they did give out some unconditionals last year for a couple of subjects (econ & geog and biology I think?) so it could be a good bet because an unconditional offer before you've got your A2s could be tempting

    I know there are a few others on here thinking of queen Mary but I have no idea
    Although on the note that it's increased it's entry requirements, a few others have too this year, yorks gone from aab to a*aa so I'm assuming this means economics is more and more popular

    I'm applying for Financial Economics/Industrial Economics and related courses at Manchester, Leicester, Cass, Nottingham and Sheffield.

    If anyone's interested to see the maths element of first year undergrad, then "Using Mathematics in Economics" by R.L. Thomas was an insightful read.

    campuses all the way, aha! what are your 5 choices again, if you dont mind me asking?

    I am rethinking my life decisions again today. I am considering York or Edinburgh or Queen Marys as my fourth instead of glasgow, my research into that uni has really put me off..

    All pretty similar with Exeter being the worst IMO.

    Highest : Nottingham - Bristol - Bath - Exeter : Lowest

    Nottingham is best IMO, Bristol and Bath are similar - I prefer Bristol's campus but Bath do have the option of a sandwich placement year.

    I think Bristol is the best out of those 4

    I'd say Exeter is the worst and the other 3 are similar so probably change which is best every year if that makes sense, they're pretty level imo

    Hi,

    I am currently taking a gap year, and I'll be applying for Economics 2015 entry. I have already received my A level results they were A*ABa. The B grade was in Pure Maths and I am going to resit it in June 2015. My main worry is about my GCSE results they were pretty poor, all B's and C's, will they have a large impact?

    I am unsure as to what level of university I should be applying to, your advice would be appreciated.
    Other than oxford and lse I can't imagine that your gcses will have any effect considering how well you've done at A2

    You should be able to apply to any A*AA if your resitting your maths but probably not cambridge, lse or ucl as they generally want an A* in maths already so may not be good choices. But that still leaves plenty of other universities bath, Bristol etc

    Are there much differences between Nottingham and Bristol in terms of the course? e.g. is one more mathematical than the other

    Yeah I'd say so although it might depend on what your Bs are in if ones in maths that might be more of an issue as warwick deffo specifies an A in maths, not sure about bath or Bristol but it shouldn't be an issue for nottingham
