    Had a little Google search- ucas key dates- they have until May 7th to make a decision if you apply by January 15th deadline.

    Fair enough, I was told 31st is a deadline. Had a little google search myself and found this: 31st March 2015 - Date universities will usually have made a decision about your application if you sent it before the 15th January deadline (although this may take longer in some cases.)

    and

    6th May 2015 - The date you need to make a decision on your firm and insurance choice if all your universities responded by the 31st March deadline. If UCAS do not receive your responses, they will decline offers on your behalf

    idk

    Don't worry about the rejection, who needs them?

    I really don't understand Warwick either with people they choose to accept or reject. There's a guy on the Econ thread who got an offer with ABBB and much worse GCSEs than you, which (no disrespect to him or anything) is a bit shocking given the calibre of some of the applicants which have been rejected. Sometimes feels like they're picking out of a hat...

    same could be said of cambridge. tonnes of people with straight As rejected, people like physicsmaths e.g. getting accepted with AABD and terrible gcses.

    Same could be said of any uni, the unis always have a lot more info at hand than we can speculate on. Ofcourse they dont always get decisions right, certainly oxbridge dont as theyre picking from the top of the top, and the same with warwick im sure.

    but it rings true for every course and institution

    The difference with physicsmaths is that Cambridge Maths admissions officers only care about maths ability and that alone. Check out his UMS in maths and his BMO scores, he isn't as bad an applicant as you present him. Straight A's could mean a UMS average of 100% or 80%. Even those with 100% UMS averages are called for interview at Cambridge and run the risk of rejection.

    I am just confused as I thought I had a good chance of getting in. The only thing I can think of is GCSEs; my UMS isn't too bad and my PS was good enough for LSE (who place far too much emphasis on PS).

    I'm not fussed that I didn't get in but I am just confused, that is all :P

    It's not the same thing in the slightest. Cambridge get UMS and interview performance in addition to your grades. Warwick gets what, your PS? Additionally if you actually have a good profile (i.e. 90%+ UMS average) then you are guaranteed an interview at Cambridge - they don't just reject those with 100% UMS and 14 GCSE A*s right off the bat.

    An explanation for some of the rejections from other unis for those with near perfect profiles may be that some institutions do actually reject those who they feel will not take an offer from them anyway.

    that is exactly the point im getting across, i can see on here that despite his grades he probably deserved that offer - his maths ability is strong indeed.

    But boywonder is just portraying the guy with ABBB who got warwick offer in the way he wants. Warwick arent as academically focussed as cambridge, ofcourse, so to them maybe things on the PS like extracurricular are more important? No need for him to slate their admissions process because on the face of it it doesnt look like some decisions were right.

    Just like Cambridge (even more so for cambridge ofcourse), Warwick will have a lot more info on a student than we have and can make the right decisions. same with e.g physicsmaths as they used his other info and interview to get a better view, same with the ABBB warwick econ guy im sure

    And of course, important to remember, these institutions dont always make the right decisions!

    I never said Cambridge don't make wrong decisions. I merely pointed out that you are making a false equivalence by suggesting that someone getting rejected with near-perfect grades from Cambridge is the same thing as someone getting rejected with near-perfect grades from, say, Warwick.

    why is it not? Cambridge are completely academically focused, Warwick Econ are not - theyre going to have more of the career driven I-Bank kinda guys

    Chill out lads. Who cares about warwick and there admissions! I think they rejected purely because they knew you were not going to pick them as you said yourself. Btw EH17, did you put your scores on your School reference or PS? UMS scores I mean.

    I might do. It would probably say 'very strong competition' or something :P

    LSE had 13 applicants per place for economics in 2013, Cambridge is fairly competitive...

    Moving on, how is your revision?
