    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.
    I've applied to cambridge warwick and durham too!

    I think durham take their time with it all so that could be a while
    Cambridge invited people to interview around 2 weeks before so mid November (?)
    And warwick have already given out a few offers so I guess they're working on a rolling basis

    No idea about the other 2 sorry

    So I got an email from LSE saying they'd received my UCAS application, but I was confused by the email because I'd been seeing people say that LSE ask for module results?

    In the email it said "It is Undergraduate Admissions policy to make decisions based solely on the information presented on your UCAS application"

    It does then go onto say, "
    In instances where we require additional information in order to make a decision (i.e. predicted grades, clarification about your qualifications, details of extenuating circumstances, etc), I will contact you." - so is that part meaning that module scores will sometimes be asked for or is the first part outright saying they won't?

    I'm just curious and wondering if anyone else knows more!

    At a level i got A in maths biology german and turkish and B in chemistry
    My predicted grades will probably be A in maths biology german and A* in turkish

    I am thinking of applying to warwick, surrey, york, birmingham and southampton --- actually might change one to nottingham

    Are these realistic choices and also, how likely is it to get an interview?

    Also further maths and economics were available at my sixth form but i didn't choose them. Would that put my choices at risk? So scaredddd

    All A*s at GCSE, 5 As at AS, 4 A* predictions for A2. Although, if its any reassurance, their PS wasnt that good (IMO) so I guess grades are more important.

    Hi. I am a student in my last year of a levels from Pakistan and I have decided to apply to UK. I have visited UK and went to the campus tour for Warwick and I absolutely loved it. But I also saw LSE from the outside and it seems nice too. After I got 3As and a B, I decided to try out for LSE but I obviously can't get in pure economics as it supports further math which I don't have so I have decided to apply for philosophy and economics there though I don't know if I like philosophy that much. But this way I can't apply to Warwick because it doesn't have this course but I really want to apply there. So can anyone help me decide whether to go for philosophy and econ at LSE or just economics at Warwick? Also which of the two courses have better job prospects?

    I dunno, I am taking 4 as well but I think they may have removed that offer. On their website it just says A*AA now.

    My current choices are Oxford, Warwick, UCL, Bristol and Nottingham and i need to send the form off by today or tomorrow.
    The thing i'm not sure about is if I should apply to LSE? I have all the academic requirements (3A* predictions, AAAA, 8A* GCSE), I have done (only) AS further maths and I think I have quite a good personal statement.

    My first 3 choices I am set on, but I am contemplating swapping LSE in for either Bristol or Nottingham. I am not too keen on Nottingham, and although I love the city Bristol, their economics department is not the best.
    My initial main reason for not picking LSE was that all of these unis are really competitive and in a worst case scenario I could end up with no offers! What is the likelihood of this? Also, I am not doing A2 further maths.. (although have done AS).

    Do you think I should stick with my current choices or put LSE down for Bristol or Nottingham? Thanks in advance!
