    I have a Social Policy offer from LSE and an Economics and Politics offer from Bristol, so not your exact courses but similar
    Ah, I was thinking of Sociology at LSE as a possible 5th course. If you don't mind my asking, what are the requirements and what were your AS's?

    What is your offer from LSE??
    I'm in a gap year so it's unconditional, the standard offer is AAB though

    I got A*AB in my A Levels (I'm in a gap year), the standard offer is AAB but since I already have my grades it is an unconditional offer

    I've got A*AB as prediction, do you think I might get an offer from LSE Philosophy and Politics? (typical offer: AAA)

    I'm applying from Ireland for Law. I only have a conditional from Manchester so far. I've applied to Edinburgh, Glasgow, King's and Cambridge! I'm a bit worried about King's because everybody seems to have offers from them already....

    I think you would have a much higher chance if you could change your predicted grades to AAA/A*AA

    I think half this site has offers from Warwick.
    And bath sent me an offer at the start of the month so they're really quick.
    Exeter is so slow that the only thing I got from them was an acknowledgement??
    Same thing here regarding Exeter :L Bath contacted me about my offer last week, so I'm still waiting on 4 other unis to get back to me

    Has anyone heard anything for sociology or politics courses yet? I've just applied for 4:

    Durham - Combined Honours in Social Sciences
    Durham - Sociology
    Birmingham - Politics & Sociology
    Cambridge - HSPS

    Anyone know anybody that's had offers for these courses?
    Also applied for Combined Hons at Durham, nothing but a subject selection email followed by an acknowledgement so far. I think we may be waiting for some time! Although Sociology may be quick as its a single department. Also applied for Pol and Sociology courses btw

    Ah, that makes sense. I thought LSE would be tougher to get into than their average offer though. Is it your first choice?

    My application went off on Tuesday evening at about 10PM and I got an offer from Kent the next day at about 1PM. Still waiting to hear back from my other choices, but I had to send them supplementary personal statements which I only sent on Friday/yesterday, and I still need to finish one which I aim to have done tonight. Thankfully it's for Exeter, and I've heard they take donkeys years to even look at your application, so hopefully I haven't missed my chance.

    Yes I thought so too, especially since 1 of my subjects is non-preferred. I think my Personal Statement was pretty good though, and I had extenuating circumstances which caused me to self-study the majority of my A Levels.

    When did you apply? It was my fifth choice as I've applied for medicine, I was surprised cause their website stated that applicants with personal statements clearly directed at medicine/vet med/dentistry shouldn't expect to hear much for a bit. Let me know when you hear any good news!
    Around the 20th of October
