    Nice, I applied to LSE, Bath, Bristol, Birmingham & still deciding on a 5th choice, if I get an offer from Bath I'm going to plump for UCL or Warwick as my final choice cause I really like Bath

    I've got my Cambridge interview at Churchill on Saturday, and just wondering whether they are more likely to ask questions based on maths I did last year or have done so far this year so I can focus my preparation. Thanks
    I am also applying to Churchill for Economics and have my interview on Saturday... Even though we are in direct competition, it can't hurt to exchange a few tips!! Did they say you'll be given a "Set of Maths problems in an Economics context"? I suspect it will draw mainly from C3/C4 calculus - but significantly harder. Good Luck!

    I got the part about the maths problems in an economics context in my email as well. I've been going over all the maths I've done in sixth form, but will probably focus on C3 and C4 now. Good luck to you too!

    Got an unconditional offer from Birmingham in 4 days if made firm :P But I'll probably use it as an insurance. Now that I got my safe choice I'm thinking of applying to UCL or Warwick, I do not do FM or have it at AS, which one of these unis do you think will care more about FM and which one would you say is the easier one to get an offer from (I know neither of them are 'easy' to get an offer from but you know what I mean)

    Tbh, I think the only Economics uni that actually genuinely cares about FM is LSE. Don't know about cambridge, but I got an interview for Oxford for no FM. Also, I would say Warwick is 'easier; to get into sole on the basis that UCL is a more interntionally renowned university and it is in the capital therefore lots more students (especially international ones) apply to it.

    Neither. From what I've seen (over the past couple of years or so) UCL is 'easier'. Warwick is pickier on grades, offer is A*AAa or A*AAB whereas UCL is simply A*AA + pass in a 4th subject at AS, which gives the impression that they're after straight As at AS. And generally they take much longer to reply, quite a few more people on this thread currently hold 'offers' from UCL than for Warwick and they tend to be a bit unpredictable. I've seen people get offers from Oxbridge/LSE and not get Warwick whereas it isn't usually the case with UCL.

    Both Cambridge and LSE genuinely care about FM as stated on their website. Besides, Oxford don't do Economics.

    Warwick also has a huge international vibe and attracts plenty of strong applicants. The quality of the course, and reputation (especially for Economics) are more or less the same between them.

    Apparently UCL have a more maths based course than Cambridge and I got into UCL without A2 FM or AS FM grades. I am taking AS FM this year.

    Well the fact that you're taking FM AS this year probably helped on the offer
