    Doesn't that depend what they or you class as the average applicant?
    Not really. we have got the unconditional probabilities for the 2 years. So if you take at random an 06/07 applicant and give me no other info I say that the probability they got an offer is 0.4167. Similarly with an 07/08 applicant it is 0.5146

    From Warwick and Durham?
    I know Durham asked for an A in Economics last year from people.

    Overall, your chances hang in the balance with Warwick and Durham (lower chance for Warwick), all dependent on your personal statement quality. I'd say an average personal statement and you'll be rejected from Warwick.

    Oh yes they does actually make sese to me now you have explained it like that , then an above average applicant will usually have a greater chance of getting an offer. So you put me as a below average candidate . lol. Due just to the lack of Economics I hope?

    But not everyone who got an offer did Economics? I have put my PS in the TSR PS helper thing so I am just waiting to see if it is any good or not? Spose if it doesn't get looked at soon I am just going to have to apply with it anyway.

    Well as I said before there are a number of issues:
    Weaknesses
    i) No Economics (or Business)
    ii) 4 AS-levels but not sure how respected Art is.
    iii) 6 GCSE A*s (LSE like 9, but enough for Durham who like 5).

    Neutral
    i)4 A-levels but not sure how respected Art is.
    ii)FM A-level but AS grade c (A2 predicted B
