    If you apply for courses which require A* in Maths (e.g. BSc Economics), then they will send you an email asking you to fill in a form. This form will ask you about your Maths and Further Maths UMS in each unit and also the AS grade in your other subjects.

    If your course doesnt ask for A* in Maths, then they wont ask you for your UMS grades in Maths and Further Maths.

    Works similar for all courses. Some courses ask for your UMS before they give you that email (which people refer to it as the '8 weeks' email )

    Rather not be too specific. Its russell group. Graduated already hence the unconditional.

    What does the 8 week email look like? I applied two weeks ago and just got an email then saying that my application was under "initial review". Is that it?

    No I don't think that's it. Mine said:

    "I am writing to provide you with a further update on your application. Your application has been passed to the Admissions Selector for the BSc in Economics programme for further consideration.
    The Admissions Selector will continue the holistic assessment of your application, and will consider it in competition with other candidates in your cohort. This stage of the admissions process typically takes eight weeks, however it can take longer if your application needs further consideration and is held as part of a gathered field. This may often be the case for very competitive courses. Please refer to our acknowledgement email for further information on our decision timeframes."

    Received it roughly a couple of weeks after the initial email, so yours should be coming soon hopefully
