    Just a question to clarify something. I am currently holding an offer for L100 Economics and am doing 4 A2s. Last year for my AS, i achieved 4 As.

    I would like to ask, if (by an off chance) that I only achieved A*AAC at A2, do I still meet my offer of A*AAa or must I meet my offer of A*AAB as I'm doing 4 A2s.

    Thank you

    Hi,
    assuming your offer letter states an offer for the 4 A2's you are currently studying, then getting A*AAC would classify as missing the offer.

    Hi, I'm a second year student on L100. If I fail my exams because I was reading your posts here rather than revising, can I plead mitigating circumstances?

    Hi does Warwick take into consideration a pupils extra circurlars such as sport/drama/music/dofe? Like in our personal statement if we say what we could bring to the university, would you take that in to consideration?

    Thanks

    Hi, I have previously read in one of the Warwick prospectus that a foreign language at a grade C at GCSEs is one of the crucial requirements for Economics L100. Is it still worth applying to this course considering I haven't taken any foreign languages for GCSEs and so don't even meet the requirement?

    Hi,
    assuming your offer letter states an offer for the 4 A2's you are currently studying, then getting A*AAC would classify as missing the offer.
    The offer letter states:
    " Grade A*AA in 3 A level subjects including maths, and grade A at AS level or grade B at A level in one further"

    Since I have achieved 4 A's already at AS level and are taking all 4 to A level, effectively the offer is A*AA right? Since I would then meet the offer of A*AAa.

    Hi,
    no, this is not a current requirement as far as I am aware. We simply ask for a grade A at A-Level Maths

    Typically between 12 and 15 hours a week, depending on the year of study.

    In first year, you will do the equivalent of 5 full weight courses, of which each course will tend to have 2 hours of lectures a week and 1 seminar.

    Hi,
    it depends on whether you are "cashing in" any of your AS levels or not. You would need to declare that you wish to certificate one of your AS levels in advance of taking the module any further to the A2 level, if you wanted to take up the 3 A2's and 1 AS offer.

    So if I am taking a non-modular A-level (CIE), then my offer is ONLY A*AAB since I am taking all 4 subjects to A2 level, am I right?

    Hi, I will have an A-level in Maths before I apply, having self-studied modules early - will I be allowed to count this towards meeting an offer? I hope for A*AAAA at the end of lower sixth, so could I take two subjects next year and get AA (or three and get AAC)? Thanks
    Hi,
    yes, if you have already attained a grade A in A-Level Maths (as this is our requirement), you will likely receive an offer based on your remaining subjects (such as A*AB)

    Is there much difficulty in switching between EPAIS and pure Economics at the end of 1st year? I've taken A2 maths & further maths if it helps.

    (I'm not looking to switch, it would just be nice to know how flexible everything is!)
