    New question: How do you guys cope with rejections? I'm going to apply next year and will undoubtedly get a few rejections. Quite concerned! :/
    The key is to have all ur choices as unis u want to go to. Therefore if u get a rejection u can be like oh so i didnt get ______ but ive still got ______ therefore wh cares. For example if ur oxbridge its usally a good idea too have places like LSE, UCL, Durham or warick aswell because your likely to get at least one and there all amazing. Also dont commite yourself to one uni to much (at least not untill u get an offer) I know loads of people who hyped themselves up about one of their choices and then got rejected (happens loads with oxbridge) the best thing is clearly to reaserch and like the uni but wait till u get the offer to go crazy do a few visits and sign up to every chat under the sun. Good luck im sure you wont get any rejections though

    Leeds - Economics BSc - AAA
    Newcastle - Economics BSc - AAA (should lower to AAB if I firm)
    Nottingham - Industrial Economics BSc - AAB

    Reasons on what to put down?

    Nottingham is the most reputed and targeted by IBs out of those options.

    But it's Industrial Economics there, not straight Economics... Will that not change graduate job prospects etc?

    If you want to go into IB, it's more about where rather than what, so industrial economics at Notts is a better choice.

    Nope, you don't even need to do Econ to get into banking or even most grad schemes.

    It's ranked 8th most targeted on the LinkedIn rankings for IB - just below Durham and Manchester but above Bath, Bristol and King's.

    It read as follows:

    I am sorry that I had to write with disappointing news. I have now spoken to the Tutors who evaluated your application.

    This year, Oxford had a very high number of applicants for Economics and Management (1129). The approximate ratio of applicants to places was 13.1 to 1. So the application process was extremely competitive. The selection criteria for the subject can be found at http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...ction-criteria.

    All candidates are very carefully assessed, taking into account all the information available, including personal statement, references, predicted examination results (when applicable) and academic track record. Consideration is also given to the educational context of this information, and any other relevant factors.

    The tutors were impressed by your UCAS form and your academic record to date, and by the support for your application expressed in your reference. Your mark of 65.6 in the TSA was fairly good, but the tutors felt that your essay was less strong than those of some other candidates. Your interview performance was good, and the tutors felt you were articulate and clear. They did feel that you were a worthy candidate for admission to Oxford, and so secured you a further interview at another college, but, given the extreme competition for places, we were unable to make you an offer.

    I hope this information is useful to you. We wish you all success with your studies and future applications.

    Thought they were pretty nice! Always knew essays weren't ma thang 😉
