    GCSEs: 7.5A* 3 A
    AS grades: AAAA
    A2 predicted: A*(achieved)A*A*A(further maths)
    Unis: Cambridge, LSE, UCL L101&L100, Nottingham

    Is this too risky? or am I right in thinking I should be confident of receiving a Nottingham offer providing my PS is fine?
    My choices are similarly ambitious, but I'm also applying to a whole bunch of universities in Germany and the Netherlands so it isn't such a big deal if I don't get in to any of the UK universities. I'd say go for it!

    I'm applying to both! I emailed their admissions who confirmed they consider both applications separately and so you're not guaranteed either 0 or 2 offers!
    Thanks for the info!

    B was in Physics (1 ums off an A)
    Yes I am doing FM, predicted an A at A2
    Happy days then, you can 100% apply to all those, but you might want a backup just in case

    I applied to 2 UCL courses and only got offered for one, if you're applying to 2 courses they will generally only offer for 1 at best

    For E&M at Oxford:

    GCSE: 5A* 2A 3B (B's in German+DT+Lit)
    AS: AAAB
    A2 predictions (taking on all 4): A*A*AA

    100% in Maths, 95% in Economics.


    If I do well in the TSA and my PS is liked, do I have a chance of an interview? Or no chance because of my GCSE's + the B at AS. Any feedback, positive or negative, is helpful, so feel free to reply. Thanks.

    im pretty much in the same boat... 4A*s, 5A's and a B at GCSE with AAAB in maths (95%), econ (100%), fm and a B in biology. Want to study E&m aswell. Have no idea if i have a chance. my teacher says i have a small chance of interview at oxford. How were your UMS in the other 2? if so they cambridge might be better as they care about top 3 AS and less about GCSES.

    It is not of much importance to Cambridge since they interview, but it's important for the rest, in particular LSE which are known to be quite stringent on the quality of the PS.

    Only compulsory for some colleges not all, you'd have to double check with the college you're applying to.

    I visited Warwick yesterday and I loved it - it's such a great campus.

    Ok, so I have decent GCSE results;
    Maths - A*
    Statistics - A*
    Triple Science - A*A*A*
    French - A
    Geography - A
    R.E - A
    ICT - Me
    English Lang - B
    English Lit - B
    German - B

    Considering the secondary school I went to these were very good

    and for my AS levels I got (UMS marks):
    Maths - A (283/300)
    Biology - A (283/300)
    Economics - A (161/200)
    Chemistry - B (239/300) 1 mark away from an A, going to get it remarked with hopefully an A!
    General Studies - A (166/200)

    My A-level predictions are: A*A*AA or A*A*A*A in the same order as above.

    Also I would be applying with a pretty strong Personal Statement

    I primarily would want to do Economics at Cambridge... but have been told I would be better suited to Econ and Management at Oxford.

    I need advice on what my chances are on getting into an Oxbridge uni to do Econ or LSE, Warwick, Bristol (would be likely to get contextual offer at Bristol of AAB), UCL or Durham.

    Any advice or similar experience would be welcome!
