    Are those class averages or ap test percentages?

    Those are my predicted grades which are in percentages. AP exams aren't until May and AP exam grades are out of 5.

    Yeah but usually unis make offers on AP scores, like they do with A-level grades and IB scores. It just seems kind of weird to base an offer on an average in the class rather than an external exam.

    Thought I would join in on this economics thread to meet some people who I'll hopefully be studying with in September! I've applied for economics this year at Bath, Warwick, Southampton, Exeter and Surrey. I'm thinking about firming Bath and putting Southampton as my insurance

    One way it does is through immobility of labour; the best talent may be from a poorer background and may not have the opportunities to be able to get into a job where they would be most effective and efficient.
    Another more obvious way is that it leads to neg externalities, such as segregation and crime, which are market failures.

    Have you heard back from them? Many people have been saying to me it's almost impossible to gain a place there.

    I'm looking to apply next year

    Other than what the guy said already, i guess a point can be made is that at high incomes the ablity to spend is reduced leading to a greater proportion of wealth in savings which is market failure aswell! Where have u applied?

    No, but I did email them, and they said they hope to get the majority of offers out by the end of the month.
