    Couple of questions...

    I'm not entirely sure if this has been asked, but are your offers set in stone? Will the standard offer always be A*AA (at least for now?). Also, if one was to take up further mathematics AS-level whilst in A2 and decided to apply to Warwick, would the applicant be expected to achieve an A in that, making the offer A*AAa? How beneficial to the applicant would taking FM be?

    Thanks.
    Hi, yes the offers are set in stone and they are currently A*AAa (A*, A and A at A2 and a at AS) and A*AAB (A*, A, A and B all at A2). Given the offers are strict, yes, if an applicant were taking three A2 levels and one AS level, they would be expected to achieve A*AAa. Further Maths is treated as a standard AS/A2 subject.

    Hello

    I got Math A, Economics A*, Accounting A*, Environment AS a.In O Levels I have 7A*s and 4As. Do I have a chance of getting an offer? And is accounting considered a good subject if taken along with math and economics?
    If I have read your list correctly, as it stands, your grades are A*A*Aa so yes you do meet the entry requirements. However, remember a successful application depends on all components, your current grades, personal statement, academic reference and past academic record. Thus, even if you meet the grade entry requirements you are not guarantee to receive an offer, although your grades place you at no disadvantage whatsoever.

    So it is definitely untrue that you "will not accept both business studied because of overlapping content", as I was once told?

    Thanks again.
    It is true that we look for a wide breadth of study in our students. So yes, if an applicant studies both economics and business studies they are less likely to receive an offer; however, it will not rule them out. So, as per my previous point, it is important you express a wide variety of academic interest in your personal statement.

    Hi, I recieved an offer for Economics around a week ago and my offer was A*AA and an a at AS including Maths. I do four subjects at A2; further maths, maths, economics and biology. Just to clarify,does this mean I can achieve A*AA in any subject combination so long as it includes maths i.e. can I achieve it in maths, further maths and economics?

    Thank you!
    P.s sorry if my post is a bit confusing
    Yes it as you say. If your offer is A*AAa, which must include an A in A2 Maths, then so as long as you achieve an A at A2 maths, you can attain the remaining grades from any combination of the other subjects.

    I am not aware of any such scholarship/bursary but you can find out more information from the University’s International Office: www.warwick.ac.uk/go/io.

    Hi!

    I applied to International Business and International Management but realized that my chances of getting an offer might be off the table as I'm not sure if I fulfill the entry requirements.

    I understand Maths is important, especially in International Management. But I only studied Maths Studies (IB), but got a 7. In addition, if I've understood it correctly, you require a natural science on HL? I only had Biology SL.

    Furthermore, I didn't have neither French, Spanish nor German at all, which also is - if I've understood this correctly - required. I'm trilingual although not in any of the languages mentioned above, will that be taken into consideration? Is it possible to study Chinese as the additional language?

    My subjects and grades were the following:
    Economics HL 6
    English B HL 7
    History HL 6
    Mathematics Studies 7
    Biology SL 6
    Swedish A1 SL 6

    +1 bonus point, making it 39 points in total

    Does this mean my chances of getting into Warwick are completely off?

    Ps. Many apologies, just realized this thread is the department for Economics. But I would very much appreciate it if you could respond. Thank you in advance!

    Hi all,

    Here comes a quick question from someone who knows very little about UK universities.

    In what fields do stand out the economics Department in Warwick University? I mean Finance, Macroeconomics, quantitative techniques...

    Thanks

    The department has many highly regarded researchers in a wide variety of macro and micro areas, current and historical, theoretical and applied, too wide to discuss here in detail. I suggest you take a look at the website http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/economics/research/. Then when you find something/someone of your particular interest search here http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/economics/staff/. The intensive research environment also feeds into our teaching. Whereby we teach mathematical and statistical methods in first year, followed by methods on computing and data analysis at the end of the first year, and then econometrics during the second year. This "toolbox" then helps you decide on an appropriate method to answer a question which you will develop along side a project "supervisor" in the 3rd year. Given the wide variety of research interests in the department this means there will be great people around who you can ask for advice, or even supervise the project. A top project in your chosen area can lead on to further study (at MSc or PhD level) following on from your work.

    There is no waiting list, you will either receive an offer or you will not.

    Thanks for replying to me so quickly! I have another question: How are offers given out? Are they given out after the decision is made or held and all are given out of the same day? Or is there a different method?
    Thanks in advance!

    There are no strict requirements for the GCSE profile. An individual with no A*’s may receive an offer while another individual with 11 A*s may not. So your GCSE profile will not prohibit you from getting an offer. I would focus on making the rest of your application (personal statement, AS/A2 levels and academic reference) as strong as possible.

    The majority of applications will be received by us by the 15th January. Then all decisions will be made and sent to UCAS by 31st March, who will collate all offers and distribute them to the applicants.

    Hi
    I applied to do economics at Warwick back in October, but I still haven't had a reply yet. Is there much chance that I will get an offer now? I have been predicted the entrance requirement of A*AAa; I know this doesn't automatically mean I will get an offer but I just wondered if there was a reason my application is taking a long time. Thank you!

    Does your Economics offer of A*AAB specify the grade of Maths i.e. at A*? What if A* FM is achieved but not Maths?
