    So far I have (for Economics):

    Lourobourgh - 340
    Sheffield - ABB
    Reading - 340

    Predicted grades: AAB and I'm very confident I'll get an A in my new AS.

    What other two do you think?

    Bearing in mind I have to get in for 2010. I can't wait a year.

    Thanks a lot for any help

    You need to look and decide for yourself it's important you make the right choice for your future! Do a course search for economics on ucas and have a look through the various unis that comes up.

    The biggest problem I see is that some universities see Business and Economics as one subject such as York.

    Yeah I heard that.

    What do you think would be a good backup choice?

    Yeah most don't accept them both .... also not having maths will be a big disadvantage. Your GCSEs are good though and could make up for it

    I've only come across York that doesn't accept both.

    What others don't?

    Don't you think that's a bit out of my league? Their offer is AAA so my predictions don't even cover that.

    Despite your aab grades you have 2 significant weaknesses:
    i)Economics and Business overlap
    ii) No Maths

    Email your target unis to see how they feel about both these issues.
    But I think you are right to start looking at non-competitive unis e.g. outside the TAELT top 23.

    It's A*AB now. But yeah, I'm definitely going to add another backup.
