    Your chances are very, very slim, if not zero. I would bet my house (on my parents behalf) that you would not get in for Economics.

    There are plenty of other good places that you would have a good chance at.

    From what other people have said i dont think i will since it would just be a waste of everyones time. Yep their is that small chance but since i have "2 Soft A-Levels" and Poor GCSEs i dont really think i should try.
    Try if you want, but its a waste of a one of only five choices.

    You would have an average chance for some of the other courses. I would get your referee to stress in your reference that your school is bad/whatever other reason for why your GCSEs were not up to scratch.

    With a good personal statement, you could feasibly apply to most of the course with Economics (and joint honours), Management, Law, Accounting and Finance being the main exceptions. As above, perhaps Management Sciences?

    I'd suggest you drop both Business and Accountancy to take Futher Maths. Also consider taking AEA in Math and Economics.

    Law, Accounting and Business are all soft subjects so you should change them (at least three proper subjects) if you want a better chance. But I don't think your chances for straight Economics are good with your GCSEs.
