    I got in with much lower GCSEs than you for Econ. My PS was tailored to Econ and Econ only, be careful if you're applying to more than one course. You might make a very general PS that might get you rejected for both.

    Considering the fact that you have the highest stats possible, I'd say so.

    Hello

    I've sent my application on 8 September but have yet to receive any confirmation or acknowledgment email from UCL. Am I supposed to receive one?

    You're definitely not alone. I applied on the 7th and I was just as worried as you. I contacted them and I got the following reply: "
    Please don’t worry, we just haven’t imported the new UCAS applications yet. We will do this in the next few weeks."

    Since economics is not one of your subjects, it may be worth talking in-depth about an econ-related topic in your PS to demonstrate knowledge and interest.

    Hey I'm applying for Beng Mechanical Engineering

    IGCSE's : 4 A*s 4 As and 1 B
    AS: ABBC bio, chem, phys and math
    Predicted: AAB

    I'm taking a gap year to focus on my studies and resit the As/A2 exams for chem, phys and math cause I know I can up my grades. I know I'm not predicted an A for A level math but if I clearly state in the ps my intentions for taking a gap year to achieve the A in math will they consider me ? or the fact that I've taken an extra year make it impossible to get an offer?

    Hi, I'm a mature student looking at the brand new Medical Sciences and Engineering degree.

    I have 4A* 8A and 1B at GCSE Then an Access to Medicine/Dentistry/Pharmacy/Medical Science diploma with 39 credits @ distinction and 6 @ merit, which by far exceeds their 18 credits @ distinction criteria. I worked full-time whilst I did this, front-line NHS.

    I am also sitting an accelerated Chemistry A-Level this year ie. 2yrs in 1, (Chemistry is where my merits came from), tutor has predicted me A*, again I continue to work full-time in the same job.*

    My personal statement is written for Medicine, but I have emailed admissions to ask if I can provide a separate one. * *

    Do you think I stand a chance? I'm 50/50 about getting into Medicine this year and this is my ideal non-medical choice. Intake is only 30 students though so I expect it will be competitive.*

    I really don't know. Perhaps "in a few weeks", which may mean this week or next week.
