    If I were you I'd contact UCAS asap, cos I think you can change your options after applying. However they did say that your unis receive your application instantly so it may make a bad impression if you change them now. Btw are you aware that LSE ask for UMS now and also strongly recommend further maths?

    Yes I am aware about the UMS requests - I have a UMS average of about 88% but that can be accounted to a rogue module in D1 where I got 54! I'm guessing that without that it would be significantly larger - hopefully they would ignore this as it's D1.
    My c1, c2, s1 and fp1 are all over 89 but I'm not sure if I'd be alright UMS wise?

    Are you sure about the bad impression thing as it does say I can edit the choices quite easily by just putting the new one in and thats it.

    hmmm I reckon 88% would be good enough, but that's just personal opinion. I only filled out my UCAS application like 3 days ago and I definitely recall reading something that said its definitely better to get your choices right the first time you apply. I don't see why it would disadvantage you if you apply to LSE though- you've got the grades so I doubt they'd care that much tbh.

    LSE dont request UMS, "it is Undergraduate Admissions policy to make decisions based solely on the information presented on your UCAS application" - straight from there acknowledgement email, therefore no UMS requests.

    Ok guys, I'm gonna change Nottingham and put LSE in it's place. I guess now Bristol will be my backup of sorts (but not really), or would you suggest changing this for Bath where I am basically guaranteed an offer (as many inferior classmates already have offers from them)? That come across arrogant but it is true!

    If what the previous poster said is true and LSE don't ask for UMS, then I'm also considering changing Nottingham to LSE. Looks like we're in the same boat lol

    I've just received a Request for Further Information from UCL that says

    "Thank you for your application to the BSc(Econ) Economics programme. If you are taking A levels that are modular then please send us a list of the modules you have taken in each subject, the date taken and the grades you have obtained."

    Has anyone else received this? Also, I'm confused because although my subjects are all modular, they were done in a linear fashion (i.e no January exams) so does this email apply to me or not, as it may be automated?

    I've received this as well. Linear fashion doesn't mean January exams, it means you took all your exams at the end of A2. Assuming you have AS qualifications from last June, they want you to email them a list of all the modules you took with the grades and dates. I think it's because there are a variety of combinations Maths A2 you can do and they want to see which modules you took. Even so, I still find it bizarre as in our UCAS forms we stated exactly which modules we took and the grades

    Really? I had no idea ucl ask for module grades. Did they ask for ums too? Isn't the email just asking you to list your grade in each exam?

    LSE L101 have asked for UMS for at least the past 2 years, if that's anything to go by.

    I was just as surprised tbh, I didn't think they ever asked for extra info. The email only asks for module grades, not UMS
