Am I likely to get five rejections? Should (can?) I change my choices? watch

    If I get all offers, Oxford will be my firm choice and if I meet the conditions I will go to Oxford. It's quite unlikely though.

    Hi op, I'm an international student applying for PPE as well, although I'm attending a school in the UK. If your grades meet the requirements of your five unis I seriously doubt you will be rejected by all of them, despite the potential weakness in your ps. And UCAS only allows a substitution of choice within seven days, so stop panicking and as you are applying to Oxford, get ready for the TSA and your interview. Good luck to your application!

    I applied to PPE in LSE, UCL, and KCL last year and PE at Edinburgh and Bristol. I was worried about getting rejected by all of them at first too. Got rejected only by LSE and UCL. I wouldn't worry too much. I'm sure you'll get an offer :console:

    Hello everyone,
    I applied for PPE at Oxford, LSE, UCL, Durham and Warwick. Since all of them are very competitive I am worried that I will get five rejections. I applied three weeks ago and until now I have nothing.
    I am an international applicant taking the German Abitur. I am predicted 1.0 - 1.3 ( 1.0 is the best grade you can achieve. I think 1.0 is like A*A*A* and 1.3 maybe like A*AA?) For Abitur the requirements for my choices are:
    LSE 1,3 UCL 1,4 Warwick 1,5-1,2 Durham 1,2 Oxford 1,5
    My grades are within the requirements (except maybe for Durham) but I am still worried because I have no "fancy" extracurriculars and I consider my personal statement to be comparatively weak because nobody could help me and I didn't have much time to do it.
    Do you think I could/should change my choices to prevent to get no offers at all? Because with my application I don't think that any of these universities will offer me a place..
    I would be happy about any advice/thoughtts about this, I am a little desperate about this at the moment.
    You should get offers your personal statement is a concern but extra curricular a don't matter in the UK it is much more about grades
