    Are there much differences between Nottingham and Bristol in terms of the course? e.g. is one more mathematical than the other
    You can avoid maths more at nottingham because you can take it as a BA but I'm not sure which is more mathematical if you do the Bsc way at nottingham I'd imagine fairly similar though

    Which others are you applying to? I guess you'd have to make a choice about where you want to live for 3 years, that could be a way to differentiate between the two

    Bristol's course is definitely very mathematical - I know many people who did A level Maths and are struggling at Bristol.

    Nottingham I would assume is less mathematical, especially as you have the option to do it as a BA instead of a BSc.

    Ah wow well done on your results
    What are your gap year plans?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    My reason was to take Further Maths as I felt I made a mistake in picking subjects that I didn't like and still want to take it. Also to get some volunteering and earn some money for Uni.

    Hey, I'm wondering if LSE would consider my application...
    I'm an Indian currently in my final year of school, doing CIE A levels.

    Okay, here's what happened. My parents wanted me to study Medicine in college.
    Around the end of AS, I realised that there's no way I'd enjoy being a doctor.

    After a lot of persuading, I finally convinced my parents to let me drop Bio and take up Econs.
    It's not a rash decision, I had always wanted to take Econs, but I couldn't fit it in with my subject choices at my school.
    My school allows students to take MAX 5 A Levels with English Language being compulsory.
    Of course with medicine requiring 2 or more sciences, I took Bio, Phy, Chem, Math and English.

    I'm doing Econs AS this Oct/Nov. I got As in AS (Except English, C in that).
    I'm predicted A*s in Math, Phy, Chem and hopefully Econs. I think I'm predicted an A in AS for that...
    Got 5A*s and 3As in IGCSE (out of 8)

    Oh and I'm also applying to Oxford, UCL, Warwick and Bath

    So, anyways, the point is that will LSE consider my application taking into account my situation and wait for my AS results (coz they arrive at Jan 15)
    Thanks for reading my excessively long post

    Ah erm I guess it'll just be good time management, so far I've only done fp1 from that list and that's pretty short

    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


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    My prediction is A for maths which im confident i can get. Also...My school do not declare AS grades so no one would know

    I'm wanting to apply for economics courses in scotland and it's edging nearer to personal statement writing time. I have never studied economics before as my school doesn't offer it, however, I have done both maths and business. I'm considering reading a book in order to mention it in my statement. Has anyone got any suggestions or any other ideas of things I can do? I already play football and have a part time job but feel like extra things a would push my application on.

    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

    The A*AA one is the standard offer and the AAA is for students with extenuating circumstances e.g living in care.
