    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
    Oh right

    I am applying for Economics and Politics courses, and submitted my UCAS application last week. I achieved AABC in my A levels in Maths, Business Studies, History, and Economics respectively, (and an A in General Studies). I am continuing with Maths, Business Studies, and History this year, and am predicted AAA (although I will be aiming for an A* in maths). Do you think the C in Economics will harm my application much?

    How many days did it take for your friend to get offers from them both?
    I think the warwick one took 3-4 weeks, but now quite a few people in my year have bath offers. With good applications, they seem to be giving offers within 2 weeks or so!

    I have applied for both the L100 and L101 from UCL and recieved the SAME email for both which is the one attached. Therefore Don't thibk l101 are asking for UMS! Also, in response to this email, do we include the module results for the AS subject that we DID NOT carry onto A2

    Will doing 3 A2s hinder me from getting offers from LSE/Warwick/UCL given that I have done AS further maths (and dropped it) and am predicted 3A*s.

    Hmm, I need to ask your opinion. I and currently studying towards my as-levels, studying maths (pure and stats), biology, chemistry and psychology. When I chose them, I intended to study a science related course at university such as medicine or neuroscience. However now I'm having a change of heart. I've been looking at degrees in economics, and they really stand out. Most university websites state that they need maths, which I have, but will my subjects fill the criteria they require? Do I have any chance on getting into an economics degree?? I would appreciate your help! Bare in mind I have no previous experience/knowledge of economics apart from research I've done myself.

    The requirement is Maths, but most applicants have Economics or Further Maths as well, or both. I would say that if you're serious about doing Economics at university, change your AS levels asap!!

    I would but it's become too late to change them now. It's too far into the course I'm told. Do universities think it's okay if I re-do my as-levels next year? I know in my classes now there are quite a few re-sitters meaning that they'll be in college for three years instead of two. Would that be reflected badly on my UCAS form?

    I applied to Econ at Warwick, UCL, LSE, E&M at Oxford, and also Econometrics and Mathematical Economics at LSE. How does LSE view applying to both those courses? I wouldn't mind doing either but Econometrics would probably be my first choice out of all of them.

    Same with me. I am currently in year 13 and applying to Economics at university. My a levels are Maths, Biology, German and Turkish. I don't think they mind if you don't have economics or further maths a level because it usually just asks for maths as a requirement
