    Probably be firming York for econ & finance. I'd say you could probably get into Bristol in adjustment and that is it, don't think it's any better than York though. If you do loads better you could always take a gap year and reapply
    I've just taken a gap year actually, so that's not really an option at this stage. I just want to get to Uni now after a great year. I didn't apply before my gap year, this is was my first time applying so I didn't know as much about applying and everything until this year anyway. It's a good point you make about Bristol not being much better, I prefer yorks exchange programs anyway. I'd probably only want to change if I was to get into UCL or Warwick at this stage which is quite far fetched.

    Id say Bristol is much better than York both for economics and overall! I may be biased as I did economics at Bristol (although insured York) but I definitely think it ranks higher. Regardless though York is still a good university

    Yeah I agree with Bristol being better for Econ, but I'm not sure if I would grab it and run if I was accepted through adjustment. I've heard there's quite a lot of hassle with accommodation and stuff when you go through adjustment. I especially like the exchange programs at York, they have partnerships with top international unis, the exchange opportunities are a lot better at York than at Bristol.

    Had I applied beforehand and got an offer from Bristol as well as York, it's highly likely id have firmed it over York though. The only ones that I would pounce on at the moment seem to be Warwick/UCL I reckon. In saying that, I'd still have a huge decision on my mind if Bristol were to offer me a place.

    My Cambridge college was Pembroke: best college ever I loved each and every day being there. Like I said: best 3-4 years of my entire life.

    Hiya could you all please help me to make a decision?

    I need to decide whether to take S3 or M3 for my 6th Further Maths module. I know statistics is more useful for economics, but I feel like I'll get a better mark with M3. So my question is, do you know how much S3 is involved in the economics course at uni? Because if there's a lot of S3 that I need to know, I'm probably going to take S3. However, if S3 isn't that essential, I'll take M3.

    Thanks!

    From everyone I've spoken to S3 is more useful and better preparation for the course. I myself am taking S3 for that very reason. However, you do need to think about it from the perspective of your grade, if you feel you will do better in M3 than S3, given we have a month till the M3/S3 exams you may need to just go with the module you're comfortable with in terms of maximising your grade. However, if you feel you can do fine in taking S3 I would recommend you choose that

    Thank you so much! I'm in year 12 actually and our teachers asked us which Further Maths module we wanted to do for next year - so I either have to learn S3 or M3.

    I think I'm going to choose to do S3.

    How is S3? Is it very hard? Did you do any mechanics modules as well? How difficult is S3 in comparison? And which exam board are you on?

    Hi, I have firmed a place at York for BSc Economics and I think I'm going to get better results than predicted.
    Eligibility for Adjustment is based on both meeting and exceeding your offer conditions (not your predictions). You say you've already taken a gap year so is your York offer conditional? And if so are you likely to both meet it (in full) and exceed it?

    Wise move, I think S3 will be better for you to take
    I don't personally find S3 that difficult and it interlinks with S2 quite nicely. In revising S3 a lot of my S2 in turn is consolidated. How are you finding S2? Or will you be starting that next year? I'm with Edexcel.
    I took M1 last year for AS and am doing M2 this year. Difficulty wise, I personally found M2 slightly harder than S2 and I would think S3 to be slightly harder than S2 given that S3 will assume you're confident with S2 (which if you are it helps tons and makes S3 considerably easier). Hmm in terms of comparing M2 with S3 I'm really not sure. I suppose since S3 is a '3' module perhaps it is right for us to assume that it will be slightly harder? It really does depend though how inclined towards statistics or mechanics you are, I wish I could answer this but really it's very subjective and people's views differ immensely when comparing the difficulty of modules. I don't think you will find S3 to be that much of a problem, I self-taught it and am finding it absolutely fine, and I think it will be more useful for you to take it than M3, so I will recommend you give S3 a shot .

    Hey, I'm a current first year and I did S3. Pretty much everything in S3 came up in the first term. The main advantage was I didn't have to look up or read over stuff since I was already familiar with it, which has helped me find the Stats portion slightly easier than others who didn't do it given the pace of lectures. Saying that it was only a temporary advantage and everyone eventually gets brought up to scratch so I wouldn't worry too much about not doing it, and if youd rather do M3 then do that as it's more worthwhile doing something you'd enjoy more.

    S3 isn't too bad, it was my fav stats module and not too big a jump over S2. The main difficulty I found was the Sampling chapter which was a b*tch to remember for the exam . In comparison to Mechanics, M3 is much harder objectively speaking, akin to the likes of FP2 and FP3, the previous two Ms pale in comparison. Saying this, some people find Ms naturally easier than Ss so it depends on the individual too. Edexcel.

    City will be better for IB/consulting career prospects, otherwise little to choose from

    It's not Cass though.. Cass has higher entry reqs and is genuinely considered a good option - econ at city doesn't have the same cachet.

    I'd go with Queen Mary because its a Russell Group uni.

    QMUL > City

    Cass > QMUL

    Cass doesn't offer straight Economics.
