    Unfortunately the offer is just a piece of paper if I don't get the grades!

    Where are you hoping to go yourself?
    I can understand. Hence the mass panic we're all going through

    LSE. It all comes down to the econ 3 unit. Stupid eggs and chickens. A question about eggs and chickens could decide where I study for the next 3 years. That's quite messedup edexcel.

    Sorry to butt in where did u hear about hudds in clearing?
    Posted from TSR Mobile
    My friend who does Computer Science there said someone who lives with him got in there through clearing last year as there are always places for pharmacy.

    Plus if you go to UCAS course search for pharmacy, click on 2013 and courses avaliable to new applicants, you can see Hudds is still on there.
    & the uni's on the "avaliable to new applicants" are all the ones that have either said they will be in clearing (like uea) or are usually there anyway (like ljmu). Plus the most competitive uni's for pharmacy (notts, bath, UCL, durham) aren't on the list and I know for fact they aren't going to be in clearing x

    Cool I guess you are getting better grades than me haha. I want to do BA geography, I loved the open day. How did you find the open day?
    We'll see how good they are I'm from Northern Ireland, I can't get to any English open days, it's too much hassle! The only ones that I will get to are UU, QUB and probably some unis in the Republic. I'm relying a lot on word of mouth and prospectuses .

    I heard the other question was better, most people just picked the eggs one by default because it was market structure. I did that exam in January - ****ing hated that paper. The whole unit bored me to death.. uhhhh Oligopoly, PFI, RPI - X uhhhhhh boring.

    Yeah...made a bit of a mistake with the choice on that, oh well, what's done is done.

    I agree. I infact really dislike the way the entire Economics A level is set up with Edexcel, it sort of killed my interest in the subject.
    I've seen how they do Econ in the IB system and its so much better. For unit 1 you can just memorize a mark scheme and blurt it out applying to the differing case studies and you can have a high score. So, so monotonous.

    Yea. I also disliked the Edexcel A level. The only unit I took somewhat of an interest for was unit 4. I'm counting on that being an A; the data response was a gift, although the essays odd but manageable. They mixed the essays up so you wouldn't get away with just learning development like you could in every past paper. Development question had a 30 marker on the monetary system LOL.
