    I'm pretty sure you can't get A* at AS do you mean 90%+?

    I'm pretty sure you can't get A* at AS do you mean 90%+? Also most universities prefer Further Maths so it'd be wise if you took that up in your 2nd year as an AS. I'd say with those grades and GCSE's you have a good shot at Warrick and maybe even Oxbridge with a good interview.
    A good shot at Warwick for real? I’m not really aiming for Oxbridge lol honestly that’s just wayy too much pressure.
    I’m doing a compressed course for 1.5 years so I’ll be sitting for my A2 this Oct/Nov, probably way too late to take up Further Math. Would it be a disadvantage for not having taken Further Math?

    I can't see it in Warwicks website but I know it's usefull for other universities like LSE and UCL. Still apply I think you have a good shot at warwick.

    your fine for Warwick , Further Maths doesn't put anyone at any advantage for Warwick. it will for other uni's such as UCL or LSE though

    most haha , the only places where you MAY struggle is LSE and Oxbridge , however once again thats a big ' may ' - if you boss the interview then even Oxbridge is good to go for you

    C1: 80
    C2: 92
    D1: 88
    FP1: 90
    M1: 90
    S1:100

    Micro: 82
    Macro: 78
    (Really have no idea what went wrong here, im just so lucky to have got the A otherwise I would have been screwed).

    Physics and General studies were both around 85% average.

    Not good enough for somewhere like Cambridge or LSE by any means but I wasn't aiming for 95%+ average or anything like that, all I wanted was the As.

    Woop, I got 4 As and a 98% UMS average. I'm slightly disappointed with not getting placed on the RES competition but I think Cambridge Econ is within my sights! =] How did everyone else do?

    AAB at in Economics, Further Maths and History at AS and an A at A2 Maths.

    Really disappointed with the B in History (but my head of history reckons it should go up to an A after it gets remarked since I was 3 UMS away), but really pleased to have gotten 100 UMS in Econ Unit 2.

    Cambridge isn't really a realistic option which I was a bit disappointed by, but my History teacher (who went to both Oxford and Cambridge) says Oxford might still be worth a shot so I'm still optimistic!

    Nonsense, you still have a good chance to get into Cambridge/LSE with those grades. Well done with them they're really good .

    Agreed 82 for C2 and 95 and 93 for M1 and C1 completely dropped it down. D1 also dropped my Further Maths from 90% to 84 % as I got 90, 89 and 73 in S2, FP1 and D1 .
