    oh high five on ucl and camb

    Actually Exeter is pretty decent. Based on many leagues its top 15. Last year 1204 applicants, 194 acceptances so in my mind that's quite good.
    fair play, yeah I thought it was nice when I saw it, but man. way too close to home.

    UCL and Cambridge... were always long shots really. I was ten times more gutted about my UCL rejection than cambridge. actually just sat and moped at my computer all day.
    How do you feel about it? you do have exeter and probably notts, and possibly waz.

    I too have an Exeter offer.
    A*AA as well, pretty high but in fairness it is what they've had as entry requirements on the website and prospectus.

    Ah fair enough, for me UCL is way to close - it was a long shot, i dont even know why i applied, i dont want to stay in London.

    I was devastated with my Camb rejection, but i got over it, my interview was absolutely horrible. I was silent most of the time, so it was no suprise :rolleyes:

    Most of the unis I've looked into have stated explicitly that they'll only take BS and Econ as one A level.
    well that hasnt been the case for me....
    ive got offers ranging from AAA-BBB from reputable universities, and even LSE didnt say anything about the two subjects, i think it depends on what you may want to study....even with Law (which i previously was aiming to go into) there was no such a problem with Economics and BS.
    I only know that Warwick and York are not keen on the two.

    Yeah my test and interview were bad. After professing my undying love for maths in my ps and stuff, i made the most pitiful maths mistake in interview.

    Anyway im well attracted to manchester. I always kinda knew i was going to go there. The big three on my ucas were always a shot at the moon, and cardiff was just an insurance i guess.
    After living in the sticks for my childhood, i am gagging for the city experience; just what manc offers, and at reasonable requirements.

    What about you, exeter or notts?

    How do you know it was a mistake? I had to do a short written test, im pretty sure i did it fine since it was basically c2 and c3 differentiation.

    If i get a Warwick offer, it will probs be A*AA so ill firm that, and then prob insurance (lol) exeter. Nott is really lovely, not sure ranking wise if its better than exeter - i know for econ exeter is better. Depends on the nott offer i guess.

    You still got LSE to look forward to hope that goes well for you

    Only put it because it makes the decision on my insurance more difficult than if they gave me either an A*AA or AAB. Think with that offer im gonna have to go with LSE as my backup at A*AA because my physics grade is included in the LSE offer unlike my Cambridge one!

    Why the neg rep??? It was simply how is was feeling at the time! (i wasnt unimpressed more slightly frustrated!)

    Oh and I've contacted Birmingham which they've replied to today, the 2012 entry requirements for the course will be AAA :/ and new fees won't be decided until late spring. Thought I'd ask them in case I decided to reapply for whatever reason
