    Thank you. Yes I did go to private school.
    Core 1 (100) Core 2 (96) Decision (97) so in total I got 293/300.

    I agree a degree from LSE is mind blowing and it is so hard to choose between the two because they are both truly excellent.
    It's a hard decision because you'd assume you'd take Oxford for the 'brand name', but LSE also has a world renowned name. You will never be out of work if you graduate from either of the schools, so if you want a good night life and social life, i'd take LSE. If you wanna study most of the time, and be around a bunch of stiff minded intellectuals, take Oxford.

    Yeah, they say that after rejection but you don't get rejected because of "poor" GCSE's that is just one of the excuses for the rejection. Besides Oxbridge normally only use GCSE grades as an indication of how good you are compared to fellow students in your school, 6 A*'s from a private school probably put him below average in your school whereas my GCSE grades were pretty much top.
    Nope they say they consider that but in realitiy they don't. A while back there was a debate on BBC 1 about whether or not universities should take peopel from state school with the potential or private schools who have shown capability and the universities on almost all occasions chose to take the most qualified candidate regardless of private/state. I also go to a state school and have seen people in my school get pooled from Oxford, UCL, Bristol... with 6 A* 5A's at GCSE and A*AA predicted Considering only 1 in 45 people form state school attain 5 or more A* you point is not very viable. The only time when what school you go to helps is if academic record is pretty similar eg. both 10A* GCSE both A*AA at a level and both preform similar on interview.

    Hi,

    I have receieved offers for Economics from Durham and Nottingham, still waiting for decisions for the other choices though.

    However, I can foresee that regardless of the outcomes of my other 3 choices, I might still have to choose one of Durham and Nottingham.


    So which university do you think is better for Economics?

    btw I am not planning to do Msc.
    I guess Durham has a better overall reputation but Economics at Nottingham is more quantitave and I am good at Maths...:ssaw:
    Thus I am confused:cool:

    I'd choose Nottingham but they both have pros and cons, Durham is more widely respected and a degree from there might have a slightly higher employability than Nottingham (barely a noticeable difference though). Nottingham is a bit more central in England and is nearer to London. The course at Nottingham seems slightly more quantitative than Durham's course as well...

    Oh fair enough, theres always bound to be a range of factors, I was just pointing out that they emailed me saying that most offer holders had all A's, you could be one of the minority, because they may have really liked you so well done anyway! and on the Durham offer too, thats amazing! Good luck for Warwick
