    One of my friends got an offer from Warwick for Maths and Economics! Her offer was A*AA and 1 in STEP or A*A*A and a 2 in STEP. She's so lucky to get an offer, let alone from Warwick, this soon

    hows everyones application going ? any offers rolled in ? got an email from UCAS today saying they had received my application , so just waiting on the offers to come rolling in ( just kiddin , im probably gonna get rejected by all 5 knowing my luck )
    Got acknowledged by all five. I'm hoping for Bristol to reply soon since they've given a lot of offers to TSR members already, meaning they are quite speedy with this. Just keep checking your email regularly, about twice a day since you get a lot of emails for the next week.

    I'm starting to regret not applying for Maths+Econ instead of straight Economics. It's just those damn STEP papers that put me off it. If I get into the really mathematical economics courses that I've applied for, it should be fine but I dunno....just have to see how things pan out.

    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.
    I'm sure they're still considering you; they probably just haven't sent you the questionnare yet. I'm sure it can't be GCSEs in any case; someone in my school who applied for pure Econ there who doesn't even have AS further maths, has lower predictions than you, has a worse UMS average than you and also has 8A*s at GCSE got the UMS questionnaire and the 'strong enough' email.

    Well, they sent the email for my UMS 15 minutes before I received the email about reviewing my academic qualifications and the 2 week response, which is quite bizarre.

    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.

    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.
    Which qualification is that?

    Sure, I sent my application on the 8th of October, which was last Tuesday, and LSE sent for my UMS on the 14th, which was this Monday.

    http://www.edexcel.com/quals/dida/ab...s/default.aspx

    It's the CiDA+ thing, so that's apparently 'equivalent' to 3A*. That's what my IT teachers bragged about, but avoided telling us it was near enough useless.

    Hey guys, can I know what is this "strong enough" emails about? I haven't received any of those. Does that mean that they're not considering me?

    Did you not declare your UMS? If I declared them, does that mean they won't email me asking for it?

    That might be possible; I didn't declare them on my UCAS form.

    I was worried for the first 24 hours after sending mine off, but I'm just distracting myself at the moment with TSA papers, homework and TV
