    It is worth 560 Ucas points. (A*=140 points)

    Cambridge average- 638
    Oxford average - 608
    LSE average- 587
    Warwick average- 574

    These are the unis which average over that. I'm not sure if it is because of A levels like critical thinking but I don't know many people who do a 5th AS let alone 4 A levels!

    I cant work out the tariffs tbh

    i cant see that being true because surely the average person getting into those uni isnt getting 4A* when the requirments are usually AAA or A*AA
    The thing is UCAS points doesn't paint the full picture, qualifications like General Studies, Critical Thinking, EPQ, FSMQ, additional AS levels, music grades etc... all inflate the UCAS point score, the average person certainly doesn't get 4A*s

    I'm having difficulties with deciding on my 5th choice. Which is better to study economics at: St Andrews or Edinburgh?
    I realise the locations are very different, but I would be just as happy studying in a small village as in a city.

    Not me personally, but a classmate got an offer from Southampton with AAA

    I guess certain universities are giving offers now, based upon the instinct that they just want the student
    (Though i think my school has a special relationship with Southampton, especially since so many students was accepted there last year!

    One of my friends got an offer the day after she sent off her applications.

    My application was received by UCAS two days ago and I'm now receiving loads of emails from the universities with my login details for their applications tracker, and confirming they have now received my application.

    So excited now

    Chances are slim considering they want it all to be achieved in the "first sitting". What are your GCSEs like?

    It's just C4 that will be retaken, the entire further maths will be on the first sitting.

    Also my gcse's are horrible, like completely awful compared to most on tsr. (5As, 7 Bs).

    Hi, I'm applying for Economics at Cambridge, UCL, Warwick, Bristol and York and just got an email from UCL asking me for my modules and UMS scores that I got last year. I was just wondering if anyone else has received this and if anyone knows if we have to tell them about any resits we've taken?

    You should have already put resits on your UCAS form?

    On our UCAS Form? Our school told us to just put down the subjects and the grades we've received in them, so I've only put down e.g. Mathematics A. So the universities won't know what modules I have taken or am planning to take, never mind if I've done any resits or not, as far as I'm aware...

    Is there any point in applying to Warwick with these grades

    GCSE: 8A's and 4B's
    A-Level: 4A's in Maths, Economics, Chemistry and Psychology
    + 2 weeks work experience in JP Morgan last summer?

    The only thing holding me back is my below par GCSE's...
    Thanks in advance

    That's new, didn't know they did that. Maybe its because you didn't show your module grades so they're asking for them? But that doesn't explain the UMS scores.

    Your work experience won't help you to get into uni. However, it will help you get a job afterwards. Your grades are good nonetheless, but Warwick are known the reject based on GCSEs even though they won't admit it.

    Is this this the same with all the target uni's?

    I think UCL sometimes do ask for UMS scores, I think it's just hit and miss depending on the year. Last year they didn't but I know they did the year before (or before that).

    So would they ask everyone or just the selected ones?
