    after reading this stuff about people getting A*A*A offers I'm really worried since I'm predicted 3 A*'s... should I have got my school to predict me lower?

    If you've been predicted 3A*s then you should have no problem getting 2A*s, although it depends how lenient your school are.

    Sounds good Bristol give out contexual offers to people who come from bad schools so check if you meet the criteria as it may come in handy! a*a*b is really good just make sure you have a cracking personal statement! Good luck

    Well our school didn't do that well in AS levels.Less than 5% of the students got A's at AS levels.I'd be happy if they give me an offer.I can still push that B to an A.Hence,I am applying after my first term internal exams.

    Okay so spoke on the phone to Exeter regarding the A*A*A offers and they said that their trying to ensure they get the best possible students.
    We said that they're not going to because the best students are just going to reject them with that offer.
    Sent an email to the admissions econ people specifically and will see what they have to say about it.
    I phoned up too and they said if you are predicted high they want to encourage you to get "the best grades you can" which is why they are offering outside their normal range. If you put it as your first choice and did not get the required grades they would "review" your application (possibly let you in anyway)

    I think both of these are on par with eachother it terms of reputation, quality of teaching, job prospects etc. the only pro I can see that LSE over Cambridge is that it's in London therefore you are bound to have more fun than you are than in Cambridge; In terms of clubs and bars and events LSE is 100x better. However, LSE being in LDN also means that it will be MUCH more expensive than cambridge!
    yeah this is basically my dilemma! I hope one of them rejects me so I don't have to choose haha. I guess the only thing Cambridge has over the lse is the name, that's about it

    Your best shot is probably universities that don't require maths, so maybe Newcastle or somewhere like that?

    http://www.entryrequirements.com/economics you could take a look on here, the aab ones should probably be ok?
