    Ahh that's good! I couldn't find the city one, do I look on the website!

    Haha why not LSE? It's already ruled out for me as I don't do Maths!

    I'm doing OCR! I think it's the easiest! what about you?

    heres the link http://city-university-london.co.uk/...U2ZI4F/cr.aspx

    haha, i also do not do maths!!! i hate it and i feel its not even needed in econ, at alevel anyway. I have ruled out ALL Bsc courses as they are maths based and mostly require maths. I'm really interested in doing PPE at uni but i have made up my mind yet. and doing it will mean, applying for 3 PPE courses and 2 economics courses cause i only like 3 uni that do PPE.

    jeez i heard OCR was tough, im on AQA and its pretty straight forward as most people do it so lots of revision materials!!

    Ohh great thanks, I'll check it out! x

    Haha, well HI 5! PPE sounds really interesting and I probably would only apply for one! I hope you can make a decision

    Haha it really isn't that hard. Only the 18 mark is but most the marks come from the graph drawings and short answer questions but the thing with OCR is that the 18 mark is heavily weighted and grade boundaries are so tight. 8 marks s the difference from an A to C sometimes and not that much revision resources, unless anyone has any ? haha!

    I didn't even know AQA did it haha but I guess lucky you!!

    Yes! Trouble is, I want to do Maths (Numbers & Codes) and it's due to finish on the 18th, and that's supposed to be the day I go to Malaysia so I'm either applying for that or for biochem I think! Malaysia date is not 100% confirmed so fingers crossed its a couple of days later aaaah! You going for Sutton trust as well?
    Possibly, although I'm not sure if I fit enough of the criteria to be accepted (as my dad went to uni)

    I sent off my application yesterday (Chemistry) so it's going to be a looong wait until March, although at least it's not quite as bad as next year!
