    Missed out on my UCL offer by a single UMS after getting 89 in C3 and 90 in C4. Sent them both in for remarking so does anyone have any good experiences with remarks or shall I just lose hope
    Oh, man, that's incredibly unlucky. Hope it all goes well for you. What did UCL say?

    How were your other A levels? Did you do FM? Send them your UMS details. All is taken into consideration

    This year in my AS results I managed to get AAB (In Business Studies, Media and Economics respectively) and also a C in A2 History (A* in Coursework and a U in my exam, obviously going to retake as atleast expected a B so I feel I read/answered the question wrong).

    With my grades hoping to be A*ABB (Business, Media, History, Economics), what are the best institutes that I could expect to be offered places too study economics or business?

    Thankyou!

    How did you decide which to send for remark? For example, what if one goes up by 5 but the other goes down by 5?

    Thanks man. I rang UCL asap and they said all decisions are final, even though I did both AS and A2 maths in one year and I had medical extenuating circumstances which were only diagnosed after my exams but which affected me during my exams. I only had a short talk with the admissions tutor cos I didn't think there was any chance of her budging on that 1 UMS.

    Nah I didn't do FM. I got A* in Welsh Bac and A's in biology and physics. Do you think its worth ringing them again and telling them my AS maths UMS (92% average) and bio/physics UMS details?

    I just sent them both to increase my chances of getting 1 extra mark. Tbh I thought I would have done worse in C3 and better in C4, I was certain I got at least 94 UMS in C4. Lol if they go up by 5 in one and down by 5 in the other then I'll easily be the unluckiest guy on the planet

    Good luck, that's so annoying that you missed by a single UMS, hopefully the remarks will push it up to A*

    Anyone know if 5As at Scottish highers is good enough to consider applying to Cambridge for economics? I got 3A1s in maths, English and business and 2 A2s in history and French. Also this year for advanced highers I will be taking maths, business and french, and a higher in economics. Would be great for any tips, or any knowledge about applying to Cambridge or other top unis like UCL or Durham.

    Yeah. I genuinely like the subject, I do. But I really dislike OCR's B spec, and that sort of led me to ignoring it once I got the offer from my firm, as they only asked for 3 instead of the 4 they have asked for in previous years.

    Yeah I like physics too but I hate ocr B and I think i could have done better on another board. How did you find the A2 part?

    and what uni was your firm offer?

    A2 is more interesting than AS, but it's plagued by the same problem of not being able to self study effectively from the resources provided by the board.

    Damn, my teachers were kinda bad this year which meant that I did self study a lot and is the reason for my C grade not too sure what i'll do for A2

    Is there any reason as to why Warwick did not include the 4th a level in the offer?

    My friend, who's set to study maths at Warwick really pushed himself for physics this year, went from a B at AS to an A overall, so it is possible, but you need to really work at it.

    They used to have it so it was A*AAB for those taking 4A2's and A*AAa for those who started 4 at AS and dropped one. But no other top uni did this, apart from LSE, who asked for an E in a 4th A2, so Warwick essentially had a higher offer than any other of the top 5.
    A few weeks into this year's application cycle, they changed it to the standard A*AA that the other unis use.

    UCL are being quite harsh this year if they didn't let you in with AAA with mitigating circumstances. I insured Warwick and they let me in with AAA:/ Also missed the A* in maths by 1 UMS ..
