Loughborough has changed from
23) Loughborough 320 (200) (2010 ABB/AAC/ABab/AAbc m#c) 374
to
23) Loughborough 2009 ABB/AAC/ABab/AAbc m#c (2010 AAB?) 374
i.e. there were differences between TAELT 2009 and the online propsectus. But it looks like those changes apply to 2009 and a further AAB change is happening in 2010.

Just a shame that there is not an online version.

when i went to open day in the presentation they were going on about how next year it is AAB and this is the last year of ABB
I have to say that I'm surprised about that. They didn't even do that well in the latest RAE (Sure it has flaws, but still, bottom five isn't great).

Your quite right, it's a well ranked Uni but for Econ AAB is maybe pushing it

Quite a few Unis are doing this such as QMUL, any reason why Paul?

I'm not Paul but: grade inflation, demand and supply, quality signal?

But Loughborough, I don't think, has seen a massive rise in applications. They're not even really ABB as I think you only need 200 points from A levels?

QMUL Has made a big jump though, it is around 30s in the league tables

Well:
i)As I tried to explain in the econ uni guide 5:1 ratio would be 'neutral'
ii) Many students will be using Loughborough as backup.

Hence I expect them to make offers to nearlly all applicants.

Well it's not on the internet yet, but I got it in an email from an admissions officer so it should be fairly reliable. I can PM you the email if you want.

That would be very helpful.

e.g. that sound a bit different to what they have on the website:
Duration of course: 3 years
Degree awarded: BA
Average intake: 84
Percentage of successful applications over last three years: 10.1%

The QM 2009 requriements have changed to say that maths is Mandatory. The new TAELT entry is
32) Queen Mary X (Cc) BBB (2010 AAB) M**B 351 (Times 34th,Independent 32th,Guardian 22ndl)
The old entry was:
32) Queen Mary X (Cc) 300 M*b M**p (2010 AAB M**) 351 (Times 34th,Independent 32th,Guardian 22ndl)
In terms of Queens Belfast I wrongly entered the Entry Requirements as chaning in 2010. The new entry is
33) Queen's Belfast X (c) BBB-BBCb m#b 347

the old entry was:
33) Queen's Belfast X (c) BBB-BBCb (2010 AAB M**) 347

Warwick old Entry was:
5) Warwick (+b in fourth AS) AABb/AAbbb/(AABB with FM) M** 473 (Times 5th,Independent 4th,Guardian 5th)
Warwick New Entry is:
5) Warwick AABb/AAbbb/(AABB with FM)/AABC M** (2010 AAAb/AAAC/AAAB with FM M**B) 473 (Times 5th,Independent 4th,Guardian 5th)
So now:
i) it has raised each of it's 4 offers by 1 grade.
ii) requires Maths atleast grade B. But in practice as the standard offer is AAA that will mean grade A in practice for many students.

A good move in my opinion, i know of quite a few applicants who just took AABb as being exactly that, and so applied with AAB predictions!

Well I have sympathy but that does suggest a terrible lack of research.

CDD (200 Points)
59) Liverpool JMU X (Cc) 200 251

Notes
1) deleted Aston as not on any table and no straight economics course there.
I was wondering... should LJMU be kept within the table since they do not offer a straight economics course? Aston were removed due to this, and LJMU in the same fashion only offer a JH Business and Economics course.
Or was Aston more removed due to the fact they're not listed in the traditional league tables whereas LJMU is?
