    5A* at GCSE, AAA at AS, A*A*A predictions. No further maths.

    92% in Maths, 93% in Econ, 80% in my last .

    What are my chances to get into Warwick for Economics? My teacher said my personal statement was good, I think my references should be good.

    Thanks.

    Hey everyone, I need some help regarding GCSEs. I only got 7 As and 4 Bs at GCSE and am worried they are going to restrict from going to unis such as bristol and nottingham for economics. I got AABB in my AS results (Maths Economics Spanish Psychology) and am predicted A*AA at A2. Do I have any chance of getting an offer from these unis?

    Nottingham and Bristol both value predicted grades very highly, and then Nottingham likes the PS and GCSE's while Bristol values GCSE's higher than the PS. You'll have a chance, definitely, but if you want to increase your chances, I
    recommend asking for another A* prediction, or to make sure your PS is the absolute best it can be.

    I'm going to pick one of them as my hopeful choice, the rest being AAA-ABB, so if I got my predictions to A*A*A I would have a slight chance of getting one of these, but I don't have further maths and I get the impression it's more important for Bristol so would I be better of applying to Nottingham?

    You already have a chance, as you've met the entry requirements, I'm just saying getting better predictions works in your favour. Further maths isn't required as a subject for either, only maths. I did get the impression that they both have fairly mathematical courses, so I think it's down to personal preference.

    Ah ok, well in terms of unis like Leeds, Sheffield and Cardiff, will my GCSEs have much of an impact on whether I get an offer?

    No, not really. They are not particularly compeititive and you exceed the required grades so should get an offer.

    Im unsure what Uni's to apply for. I got AAB in my AS Levels and got a B in A level maths 447/600. I am planning to retake C3 and M1 though to bump it up to an A

    AS Results
    A in Politics 169/200
    A in History 163/200
    B in Physics 238/300 (only 2 UMS of the A)

    I dropped History as I really didn't enjoy it and the second year looked even worse. I am predicted an A* in Politics and an A in physics and the maths retake.

    I am looking at Warwick and Nottingham as my two top ones and then maybe Lancaster and Leicester aswell.

    www.entryrequirements.com/economics

    Thanks!
    Very well developed!

    Im applying to Cambridge, LSE, Warwick, St Andrews and Durham. I already have an A* in maths and am predicted A*AA in my other 3 which are further maths, history and chemistry. I hope I get some offers soon. Is anyone else applying to these unit and do you know how long it takes to get responses from them.
