    @Jkizer, the TSR glitch isn't letting me see your message without signing out. What is her motivation to study Economics then?
    She has ambitious plans of being an accountant at those big firms like IBM.

    I think she was going to do maths, before starting researching Psychology courses (as its her favourite subject by a mile) before going for Economics as it leads to more career options.

    Its strange, especially with the focus on accountancy. (Im pretty sure you dont even need a degree to be an accountant). But i guess i kinda understand Economics... Still the risks of not doing well is greater, when you do not enjoy the subject.

    Apparently they give more Maths offers because they have STEP, for Economics, there is no STEP or interview so they have to consider candidates more carefully.

    Same, they finally spoke up. Although they did like to specify:

    "Thank you for your application to study at The University of Warwick.

    The University of Warwick is committed to fair admissions and will give full and equal consideration to all applications received by the UCAS deadline of 15 January 2014. Warwick's courses are extremely competitive and some decisions will not be finalised until all applications have been received and considered, so you should not be concerned if you do not receive a decision within a short time of applying. "

    Looks like we could be doing a bit of waiting.

    Meh, got exactly the same email.
    I would be so happy if I got one offer before November. This waiting is so annoying. My friend got a Medicine offer (medicine is pretty competitive too) from Bristol yesterday (4A* predictes, applied week ago).

    Heyy guys.

    I'm really worried, I still haven't sent my UCAS form off. My PS was 7,000 characters and weeks later it's only been trimmed down to 5,387! I don't know how to cut it down, even my teachers are telling me that there is possibly nothing I can remove- it's all essential. And also, I'm being predicted an A*AB and I'm applying to AAA courses. Will they let that balance out? I got AACC for AS (Economics, Bio, Maths and Chem) and 3*A's 5 A's 2 Distinctions and a B for GCSE. I'm hoping my school would fall under the contextual thing LOL (Kingsbury High anyone? xD)

    I'm applying to the following - do they seem like sensible options?

    Kings (International Political Economics)
    SOAS (South Asian Studies and Economics)
    Royal Holloway ( Economics, politics and International relations)
    Queen Mary's (Econ & Politics)
    City (IPE)

    I'm really worried that I've delayed my application.. If I send it in this weekend, my school will take like a month to process it. Does that lower my chance of receiving an offer?

    Thanks in advance and good luck!

    Just got another email from LSE, an encouraging sign!

    Dear "Epic Flawless"

    I am writing to provide you with a further update on your application to LSE.

    I am happy to tell you that your application is strong enough to be considered further by the Admissions Selector for the BSc in Economics programme.

    The Selector will be making further academic assessments on your qualifications and personal statement, and will be considering your application in competition with other candidates in your cohort.

    This can take up to five weeks. I will be in touch at the end of this process to let you know what happens next.

    They haven't mentioned "strong enough" to me. If they haven't asked for UMS then our AS grades are the same. Meaning it's the GCSE grades that's holding me back.

    What did you get at GCSE? I presume they are very good seen as though your applying to LSE

    Between 5-8 A* 4A 1B. I did some qualification that apparently counts for 3A*. I don't think it does but my head of year assures me they do. I guess she would know more than I do about Uni applications so I'm taking her word for it.

    I really hope they do count, I mean I was staying behind at school till 6PM for weeks to meet the deadlines and I even got mugged one night. It would be annoying if it was disregarded.

    Hoping to study Economics next year but everywhere I look apart from Leeds Uni (who want AAA) wants an A in A level Maths, which I dropped after I got a D at AS

    Currently on ACC in Economics, Biology, and Chemistry and hopefully will be able to get that up to AAA

    Might have to go abroad to study it

    any advice appreciated!
