    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 ..

    Hey guys. Congrats to all those who got into uni (especially the above who missed a* by 1 UMS - lucky)
    How closely do ucl/lse look at AS grades. I got AAAD with a D in biology. I am also doing AS FM next year and if get a A I will have 4 good AS results. Will this hinder my application???

    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
    Will your remarks be back in time for UCL to still change their decision? Hope it works out good for you.

    I think I messed up my application. I got A*A*B (maths history economics, don't ask about the B in economics!) and I'm going to Cardiff.

    Just as time goes on Cardiff's low ranking is really getting to me. Yeah the graduate prospects are great and the research is very good but it doesn't even make the top 10 for overall ranking in economics.

    Plus my accommodation looks ****.

    I was in adjustment and had offers from some very reputable universities but I turned them all down. Now I just feel like in going to waste three years getting a mediocre degree in shirty accommodation.

    Does anyone have any experience with Cardiff business school?

    Durham and Exeter.

    I didn't want to worry about sorting accommodation out, in adjustment you aren't guaranteed a place.
