    They will first send a 2 weeks email. The 8 weeks one is after that. (based on what I remember from last year).
    Last year many early applicants got an offer on the last week of their internal deadline (31st of March), so the wait can be very long for many people.

    Wait for November at the earliest. Most people got offers after their 8th week last year, owing to the downsizing of the admissions team mid-season.

    Hi,

    Applying for A&F
    GCSE's: 2A* 6A 3B 1C
    As: AAAB In Geography, Economics, Business Studies and Biology respectively.
    Predicted A*AA
    My only concern is that I don't have A-Level maths although on the website it does say it isn't essential. Therefore do meet their GCSE Maths requirement which is an A.

    Does anyone how many students per year are accepted onto the course without A-Level maths?

    Thank you for your help!!

    Applying for the same course and I'm in the same situation as you (no maths).
    I think it all depends on your PS. If you have a true interest for the course and you can show it, I think it's realistic to say maths doesn't matter.

    Source: from an email which i asked them on about admissions for the A&F:
    'In 2015/16 we receive 1,851 applications for 120 available spaces.'
    I don't know the stats for percentage of students doing A-level maths but working it out from Which? University, 92% of applicants had A-level maths. Which means 1700 applicants out of 1851 had maths.

    It basically means you don't need it but it is a fairly quantitative degree compared to other universities.

    Yes I agree!!

    EU student here, so no AS/A2 .
    Aprox. 9.75 average grades last 3 years of high school. At the end of this year I will take an exam and the equivalent for AAA is at least 9. I expect to get at least 9.3

    I would seriously think about applying to A&F without maths. You will be at a serious disadvantage in my opinion.

    Was it for all ASs you have taken or did they specifically ask for Maths?
