    So Economics and econometrics isnt viewed lower than straight economics? Especially by employers?
    :confused:
    Less people take Econometrics because it's quite specific, so if students haven't researched into it themselves, they won't know what it is.

    Also, Econometrics is harder than straight Econ.

    I know how you feel, it pisses me off how some schools give their predictions on results day/the first week back yet for us it takes them months.
    You can sort of guess, right? I mean my school generally predict one grade above. Then again, I just went up to each teacher and asked them what I was predicted.

    Have you tried asking your teachers? (This question sounds rude, but I assure you it's typed with the nicest feelings.)

    Asked all my teachers, their response is on the line of this "You'll know soon".

    Same.
    I know one of my year mates who managed to get a copy of their 'Ucas report' which is basically a school report but just tells you some of subject references and predicted grades.

    Extremely disorganised i think by my school as it almost prevents students from confirming / sorting out all their possible options for choices >.<

    York and Loughborough University offer a Maths Centre.

    Do you think it'd be like having a personal tutor where you can just go for free maths help? It sounds too good to be true.

    Nottingham's lower offer is for those with extenuating circumstances eg. Care or bad school

    Really? I got AAA(B) in AS's but I've been predicted ABB. Was planning on applying to Nottingham but I guess that's out the window now, which is a shame because I genuinely think I can get A*AA.

    This is Warwick I'm guessing? If it is, from what I've read on the internet and on TSR, they want you to be predicted an A* otherwise a very small chance.

    That's harsh I would go and ask your teachers to change them if they can. What were your UMS btw?

    History - 81
    Economics - 88
    Maths - 81

    I think that's what they were...

    Only reason i see it is, if your teacher are firm believers of people scraping A's at AS usually cant repeat the same during A2.

    Still even if you scrape it, teachers usually just predict the same as your achieved grades anyways. Talk to the head and they will probably resolve it quickly.
