    Economics at Cambridge, UCL, LSE, KCL, Warwick

    You?
    Maths at Imperial, Warwick, UCL, LSE (with econ) and KCL. So pretty much identical to you, with the exception of Imperial instead of Cambridge.

    All the best to you! I'll probably get 3 rejections from Imperial, UCL and LSE and then an impossible offer from Warwick. KCL I don't really want to go to lol

    Yeah the offers are usually quite high for Warwick but I've also heard they have an algorithm that auto-offers places to applicants with a certain amount of GCSE A*s and high enough predicted grades. I can't confirm that obviously but a teacher at my school said this, since multiple people from my school before have been offered places on the same day UCAS was sent off.

    I think if you apply in October time, around the Oxbridge/Med deadline, and you have good AS and strong predictions you're quite likely to be given an offer. Warwick are usually VERY good at responding quickly, although on the other side - I've seen people wait for months.

    The exam board was CCEA since I'm from Northern Ireland. To revise I just made sure I understood all the concepts, made flash cards to remember definitions and important questions that have been asked before. I reviewed the content constantly throughout the year so I didn't forget any of it. I made sure to do all the past papers and go through every question and understand exactly why the answer is as it is. Also done this with the examiners report which helped too.

    Good Luck!

    Yes I suppose, getting an A* requires 480/600 and 90 average in C3 and 4, so you're on course for 480, just have to convince your teacher that you can get the marks in the harder modules.

    B grades will probably hold you back from all but Warwick and Kings, not sure though.

    Yep, sitting the MAT and may start STEP prep and see how I find it. If it goes well I'll sit STEP I, if not then I won't. Really dislike the MAT though (especially cause there's not enough papers imo, especially compared to STEP) 😢

    Hows your mat prep going?
