    I've not be been in any immediate rush to apply as I'm attending the Model United Nations of Goldberg over half term so my focus has been on that, plus I have mentioned that on my PS in the past tense so can't really send off my application when I haven't participated in that yet.

    Hoping to get my application sent off (to Warwick, Nottingham, York, Leeds and Manchester) by the end of the first week back after half term (Friday November 4th). What kind of proportion will have already sent their applications by this date? and how many unis should I have expected to hear back from by Christmas time do you reckon?

    Thanks

    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).
    okay thanks, what do you think about warwick?? I've had my predicteds moved up as well, A* in maths and should be able to get English also?

    Cuz i did an one-year GCSE, which is for oversea students, could also be considered as a foundation for sixth form, so i only did 6 gases.

    GCSE results: 3A* 2A 1C

    and our school did the new linear a-level, so i only took maths as external and economics as internal

    but my UMS grade for maths (6 modules including further maths) is 492

    thanks for ur response!

    Just got an acknowledgement from Bristol. Still waiting on UCL and KCL. Though I don't mind if KCL don't acknowledge me because I'm probably going to change it to Warwick

    I would also like to know this.


    -----

    Sent off my application to Oxford, LSE, Warwick and Bristol on the 11th and have received acknowledgements from all, but no offers/rejections yet. Obviously Oxford are still waiting for the TSA and LSE take ages, but has anyone heard anything from Warwick or Bristol and if so when did you send in your application?
