    To be completely honest, I did not want to stay in London! But I do not blame them. I was meant to insure UCL, as it was AAB, and firm Warwick at AAA. I know, it sounds crazy, that is how confident I was.

    Could have been for other reasons besides just grades.

    No doubt. The course I was applying for is a cash cow pursuing international students. I know an international student in my econ class (chinese) got an offer for the same course, with grades like ACC or something, so I believe that UCL is profit centric, my opinion of course.

    Yes PS was solid

    I outsourced web development since 13, and made solid returns, so I think that stood out. I also played Ice hockey for a while, travelled to Finland, Czech Republic, and Russia for training. Last but not least, amateur boxing for the last 3 years. So pretty sporty

    Mathematics and English are the only GCSEs you really need. I believe that retaking things like sciences won't add a lot of value to my application. There is an opportunity cost here, which is time. I am currently self studying mathematics at A level, which takes up some time.
    So are you self studying A-Level maths for your university course, or are you going to do the exam as you study at uni?

    Self studying, hoping to do a masters in finance. I also believe mathematics should be made compulsory at that level.

    Yes.

    Each person has something that drives them. I like self improvement, borderline obsessed. In addition, the whole idea of being average scares me, especially after I have been considered an inferior student for a number of years by my teachers and other students in my college.

    International rep, most likely. However, the quality of the management program, WBS wins. Warwick Business School is considered separate.
