    What are your other choices?

    Bath is probably less competitive (although I don't know whether the placement year will make the course more competitive?) so if you've gone for really top unis for your first 2 that may be something to consider?

    LSE-A*AA
    UCL-A*AA
    Bristol-AAA
    Queen Mary-AAA
    Those 3As one will most likely to be backup choice so i am hoping to at least get one offer from the 3A*AA unis.

    I'd say Warwick then, unless you're desperate to do a placement year

    Yeah pretty sure warwick offers summer internship connections with large firms, but i am not sure how competitive is warwick (i mean the ratio of successful application to total applications) My AS results are 4As and 1B with A*3As prediction
    Do you think my choices are too risky tho?

    I think it's something like 3 applicants per place so fairly competitive, more so than bath anyway

    I've applied and I have the same AS results as you, although higher A2 predictions but you're in a fairly good position

    Personally I went for 3 competitive ones (Cambridge, Warwick and Durham(well durham's not mega competitive but still 2 apps per place) and 2 less competitive notts and leeds, so you'd be in a similar position to me

    If you're worried about not getting into LSE and UCL I would maybe be tempted to go for Bath as they've given out loads of offers already

    Have you been to either campus?

    I know haha 3 of my 4As are 87-88% so no A* predictions for those subjects:/ I am more than happy to go to Bristol for their 4 years course but not sure about Queen Mary (just another backup lol)
    I have been to the Warwick campus 2 years ago but was thinking about chemistry at that time and at the end i dropped it because of the B grade-_- Therefore i am not sure about their economics department. Personally i dont mind the campus environment but it could be a bit boring i guess?

    UCL Warwick Bath Bristol are really good i think, not sure about Leeds because i have never visited there but i don't like birmingham and manchester personally. Surrey has been increasing their entry offers quite a lot in recent years( don't know why they ask for A*AA) and KCL one is economics and management?

    Ah fair enough

    Warwicks economics department is pretty big, I think it has the most funding of any department on campus? So it's pretty good
