    Dont understand it ive been given a rejection by UCL!

    course: Economics L100 (2011)

    Achieved A*A* 5A 2B at GCSE

    A*A*A* in Maths Economics and Geography at A level (Physics B at AS)


    Anyone else been rejected/ given offer to L100 Economics? Anyone know why i might have been rejected?
    Don't be too disheartened. I have a friend: predicted 3 A* and also got an A* in Maths a year early, to be rejected on the basis that he wasn't as good as the other candidates? :eek:

    You psych lot:

    'You will be contacted again regarding the progress of your application. This may take the form of a request for further information, an invitation to an Open and/or Interview Day, or notification of our final decision. In the event that your application should prove to be unsuccessful, this notification will come direct from UCAS.'

    That was on my acknowledgment, yet more contradicting info on it all, doesn't even mention a sodding questionnaire.

    Anyway, it'll be a month on Saturday since processed, I'm emailing them if I haven't heard.

    Advice from someone who was accepted: DO NOT **** up the interview! I don't know what it is with Oxbridge, UCL and Imperial, but interviews are critical. My friend got 6A*s at A level, but was rejected because of a poor interview performance. Similarly, my other friend JUST made it in with 5A*s at A level. Never underestimate the importance of the interview, even if it is a load of balls! It seems as if the 'super elite' places are placing even more emphasis on the interviews than ever before; that would include Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Imperial, and LSE.

    Other than that, don't be nervous Wasted energy.

    I know :confused: but I haven't got an 'unsuccessful' yet either.. just, nothing. You don't happen to know when the psych offers came through last year do you? That might give us some bearing on when to expect them.
