    Hello, I have received an offer from Warwick 2 weeks ago for Bsc Economics (which I am very happy about), but I was wondering one thing. The website says the offer is A*AAB for those with 4 A2s yet I got an A*AA offer carrying on with 4 A2s. Was this just a minor mistake? Or was there another reason? (Not that I'm complaining of course, just curious).
    Each offer is individual specific, however, I would assume it is because you already have an “a” or above in all your AS levels.

    Im currently in year twelve studying four a levels and although I'm confident that I can achieve at least a final grade of A*AA in the subjects I wish to carry on next year (maths, bio, economics) I am uncertain that I will be able to get an A in the subject I am only taking to AS (English Lit), on your website a typical offer is A*AA(a) so what would be the chance of getting an offer if I took another AS (most probably further maths) next year alongside my other A levels that my teachers and myself were pretty confident that I would be able to achieve an A in?
    Obviously I know offers don't just depend on my grades,so I just wanted to know if this would be a disadvantage meaning I would have to make other aspects of my application stronger or mean that it just wouldn't be possible to get a offer at all? Thanks!

    Your subjects are fine. They don't have any preference over individual subjects as long as they're 'strong' (which yours are) and that you're doing Maths.

    Warwick, could I please ask if my situation will hinder my chances...

    I currently do Maths, Phys, Econ, English at AS. Next year I am going to drop English for AS FM.

    Does the fact that I will apply to university before doing FM hinder my application? - as many would have done AS FM in their AS year.

    Essentially, there would be two options if you attain a*aab in your AS levels, with an “a” in English Lit: i) continue taking English lit and aim to get A*A(maths)AB in your A2s, or ii) drop English lit and take another AS subject (not including critical thinking or general studies) and aim for an A*A(maths)Aa.
    As a more general point, yes, it is the strength of your overall application which is important: grades (current/predicted), personal statement and past academic record. So, for instance, if you feel you attained a low mark at any point, this could potentially be compensated for by a particularly strong personal statement. Further, if you feel you have underperformed for any particular reason this should also be communicated on your application form.

    In the last cohort there were approximately 400 students taking L100. Those 400 students were selected from approximately 4000 total applicants.

    Yes these A-levels are fine. As a general point we like to see breadth as well as depth in our applicants. So potentially you may want to elaborate on your interests in your personal statement since the courses you are taking have little written content. It is not clear what you mean by a post a-level applicant (since you say you are currently taking you A2s). If you are re-taking your a-levels, or have taken an extended period to complete them, then this is something you need to make clear in your personal statement.

    For entry to the Diploma course a first degree of at least upper second class standard, or equivalent, is normally required, along with a good knowledge of ‘high school’ mathematics including algebra and calculus. So if your results go according to plan, they appear in line with the above. However, I cannot comment on individual cases, as it will depend on a lot of external factors, including quality of other applicants in the cycle. Please contact [email protected] for further details.

    Sorry I meant to say that I will be a post a level applicant, and I am taking my a2s at the moment.

    But thank you for your advice and assistance

    Hello,

    I have applied for Pg Diploma Economics on 28th Feb and still do not have an answer. I got an email that only one of my refeeres have been contacted and sent a letter of recommendation for me but the second was not contacted I do not know why. Should I contact the University and ask what happened? Is it normal to contact only one of the referees and should I be worried that they are still not answering me (5 weeks by tomorrow).

    Also I was wondering is the uni making decisions during the spring break?

    Thank you in advance

    Hello,

    I have received an offer for BSc Economics. I have to decide whether I should attend Warwick; I would like your assistance on this matter.
    Could you please give me some statistics regarding my employability on graduation assuming I get a 2:1 or higher in L100? And, would I be at any disadvantage because I am an international student?

    Thank you.
