    Honestly if I was you I'd go for another A*AA, you'll only really need 1 AAB for a backup because you'll almost definitely get into them
    Hmm thanks for your confidence but I'm not sure, do you think unis like Bath, Bristol and Notts use predicted grades as a main factor?

    Haven't had that yet. I might go though, I haven't seen Notts at all.

    I really want to get an offer from Warwick, are grades AAAB with predictions A*A*AA good enough for them you think?
    Ah I got my offer on Friday and it took until today to get the letter, so you should probably get one soon

    Same I really want Warwick too! It's my favourite after Cambridge! I cant see why those grades wouldn't be, you meet the entry requirements so that should be good enough

    Nah I only just found out over UCAS earlier. Considering that it's my 5th choice uni and I live near Cardiff I probably won't go to a visit day lol

    Yeah as well as AS grades I'd imagine, I'd say you'd have a good shot with somewhere like Nottingham tbh

    Hmm maybe but I heard they, along with Bristol, look at GCSEs as well, and mine aren't good compared to other students applying there

    Thanks, it really is such a good university. I would be happy to go to Nottingham, but Warwick has to be my #1/#2 choice. Hopefully having better than the predicted grades mean I can get an offer from Warwick.

      Just received A*A*A from Exeter for Economics with Study Abroad - ( Had hoped that might stop it being as high as just straight Economics). Was just wondering, does anyone know if Exeter had a similar policy in previous years with 2/3+ A* predictions equalling A*A*A offers?

      I did the same with the international study option and got the same offer. I've never heard of them doing it before, it's stupid as it just puts people of putting them down as an insurance

      so many cats out there do economics in the hope of one day becoming a 'city boy' investment banker.

      reality: the majority of 'city boy' investment bankers are physics or maths graduates.
      It doesn't matter what you study and everything to do with what uni you go to.
