    Thank you!! Indeed it is

    I have firmed Bradford for the MPharm course, what about you ?
    Awesome! I hope you meet your offer

    Aha I haven't started applying yet but I will this October.
    Currently now my options are Oxbridge (if I get the grades), Imperial Warwick, Loughborough and maybe Durham.

    How is Revision Going: eating past papers

    Economics p2 tomorrow. Is grammar really important? Can I lose marks if I have some minor mistakes?

    Maths p1 went great!! However it was more difficult than all the past papers I solved. There was one really ugly question.
    Wow that's amazing
    What unis have you applied to?

    This is my gf's account, she will take Chemistry, physics and maths on october/november. We haven't started applying yet. I'm sitting for both AS and A2 qualifications right now. We spoke to Warwick and LSE agents in a fair that the British Embassy organized in my countr, but the UK doesn't offer much scholarships to international students, and even less if you're not from the UE or commonwealth... It's difficult for students from South America.
    However, Australia does like us!!
    The Adelaide's agent said we have great profiles and we will surely get a scholarship if we get straight A's.
    Anyway, our dream is Oxbridge. Unfortunately there is no possible way we can afford it without loans, scholarships or any kind of financial aid.

    So how did Economics P2 go and which variant are you doing?Certainly not looking forward to P4
    I replied to this and I don't know what happened, the message disappeared lol
    The p2 went excellent. I'm actually expecting 95-100% in this paper. The only thing that worries me a bit is grammar, but I don't think I can lose marks because of it, right?
    What about you?

    Nahh, I don't think you'll lose a a lot of marks just for grammar if it doesn't change the meaning of the sentence.
    I am doing only A2 CIE Economics not AS

    I did variant 41. When I was doing question 4 I realized my calculator was in radian mode I lost so much time changing my results, I ran out of time and didn't solve one problem. 4 marks lost for sure. So frustrating

    Haven't started applying yet but I'm thinking of imperial, Oxbridge, Durham and Loughborough. Warwick was one but now I'm not so sure.

    Ahh that's happened to me once when I was doing a past paper
    Yeah I get the frustrated feeling. I didn't do one problem as well (3 marks). But I know I got all of the rest of them right (I hope :lol: )
    Don't worry, a lot of the time we do better than we think we did. I'm sure your results will be fine.

    I had paper 31 and it was the best math exam I did so far. I'm sure I lost marks on p1 and mechanics so I hope this and the statistics paper will help me to get that damn 90% overall!!
