    Need help deciding which one to firm out of Leeds (AAA) Loughborough (AAB), was predicted to get A*, A, C will probably get the same, prefer Leeds but think it might be too unrealistic
    Leeds is very nice, and I hated loughborough. Leeds also has a way better reputation. Might as well go for it, you'll regret it if you get AAA and end up at Loughborough

    What are you thinking as putting as an insurance?

    I'm a second year Economics student at Loughborough and I absolutely love it. Its consistently in the top 15 in Uni league tables and its placement students/graduates have a fantastic rep with top company's. I recently secured a Placement with Morgan Stanley, so its certainly nothing to write off. The campus is beautiful, Loughborough is one of the top for student satisfaction, has the best Student Union's in the country and been awarded best experience numerous times in recent years. There is a great Hall atmopshere with events like the sing-off during freshers and IMS sport over the year. The AU sport teams and facilities are also unrivaled. Nightlife may get repetitive but Nottingham and Leicester are on your doorstep if youre that bothered. I may be slightly biased, but you'd be a fool to write off this course and institution off.

    Quite liked Loughborough but think I do prefer Leeds and that's a good point but I think if I choose Loughborough as firm then they might let me slip a grade to ABB, whereas if I have it as insurance they might be more strict

    Went to the applicant day a few weeks ago, and yeah the placement year looks good but Leeds also offer that and you can do a years study abroad instead. But the campus is really nice, amazing sports facilities and the course does look good

    You can do studying abroad here too. All I meant is top companies regularly hire from Luff and they have a good rep which is advantageous to its students, Im not sure if Leeds has that same rep. Tbh the main difference is Leeds is a Major City campus whereas Loughborough is all together, to some people thats a big factor.

    Omg yes! I had work experience at Nomura a few weeks ago and almost all of the interns/people who were on the grad programme were from either Bath or Loughborough which was quite strange xD

    Hi Guys, just wondering if anyone has been to Warwick Economics open day? Is it worth going to if i'm already planning on firming it?
    I'm going on the campus tour to see what the accommodation is like but just wondering what benefit the economics offer holder open day would have in my situation.

    Good luck to everyone still waiting!

    I plan to go to the one on the 22nd April, I'm assuming you are too? I plan on firming it too right now, but I'm going to go to look at accommodation (other than Rootes, which was all I saw in June), and I think going might be the way to know if you won't change your mind about the place, seeing it during term time with students (and possibly worse weather), rather than when the Uni's trying to sell itself like at the general open days.

    sorry for 20 questions but it's difficult to give advice without all the info

    whats your ucl offer and what are your predictions?

    I'm guessing it's just kcl that's econ&management right?

    Ahah sorry - I should've been more precise.
    UCL offer is 39 (766 at HL, 7 in maths), and I'm predicted 41.
    KCL and Durham are both Economics and Management, the rest are just Econ.

    hmm if you're doing higher level maths and need to get a 7 for ucl you must be pretty into maths, so I'd say Bristol is probably the best fit for your skill set and should easily be within your means with that prediction so I'd go for them

    Obviously you should look at module choices available and the cities themselves before making any definite decisions

    If I was you I'd insure Leicester then think about what sort of modules you'd like to do when deciding between the others

    Newcastle you have to take at least one module from the business school which isn't economics related e.g. marketing or accounting
    Leeds has more mathematical modules so again that's something to consider

    And sorry but I don't know anything about york
