    Have you considered sending off with less than 5 choices? I sent off with 4 and waited for my first offer to make my final decision

    Yep, when you send off you'll get UCAS track details and when you log on to track you can add more options as long as you are under 5

    GCSE's : 10A* 4As
    AS: AAAB, english lit, maths, chem, bio
    A2 predicted AAA: english, maths, bio

    I havent studied economics at A level but have been to a taster day and online course. I also haven't read any of the books, hence they're not in my statement. I did do work experience at Schroders tho...

    Does anyone think it is worth applying to Oxford or not, brutally honest?(parents)
    Im looking at Bath, warwick,(faves) then between Bristol, exeter and maybe leeds?

    Thanks, a part of me does think perhaps I can do better but Oxbridge, UCL, KCL and LSE put me off a little due to having very low figures in terms of % of candidates offered places (all are under 25% IIRC). Plus I'm not too keen on studying in London and 2 of my 5 choices I haven't had the chance to visit so I think for over half my unis to be places I haven't been to yet is a bit of a risk. On "the big 'are my grades good enough for Cambridge?' Thread", I was told it was unlikely Cambridge would consider me anyway, but thanks for the reply - I'll definitely take it as a compliment!

    What do you reckon my chances of getting an offer from Warwick and Nottingham are?

    I got this last year if that's any use, it's normal
    For Economics applicants, are we supposed to give UMS grades for maths and further maths or the letter of grade (e.g. A) for each maths and further maths module?

    Also, do we have to give it if we have already finished our A-Levels?

    No point applying to Oxford imo, I was told straight up that no further maths would put me in the reject pile for E&M (unless there was no FM offered). With no A*s you would also probably get rejected because of that.

    Bristol, Exeter and Leeds are all do-able but Bath may be a stretch to get an offer (but still worth applying for).

    Just the grade for each module, if it's the same this year. I never gave specific UMS marks.

    Not sure sorry, I want to say no but I never paid much attention to that as I hadn't completed my A-Levels when I applied.
