    I am starting to get worried as I applied to York for Economics and Finance over seven weeks ago and have only had a acknowledgement.

    I know that other Economics applicants have had offers back.

    Has anyone else applied to Economics and Finance at York and if you have, have you received an offer.

    I'm not sure about economics and finance, but I did get an offer from York for economics. They want AAB which I don't think is too difficult to get. I waited for about a month and got my offer. Just got my offer last Friday

    Sorry for the delay to responding. Still not heard anything from York yet.
    At GCSE I got 7A's and 4'BS. At AS level I got an A in Business Studies, A in Maths, C in English lang lit and C in History.
    A2 Predictions:
    Business Studies= A*
    Maths= A
    English lang/lit= B
    General Studies= A
    EPQ - on economics= A*
    Their standerd offer is AAB at A level.

    Have you already done your A levels or did York just give you an unconditional based upon your AS grades? What were your AS grades/GCSE, if you don't mind me asking.

    I have applied to York, Manchester, Loughborough, Sheffield, Surrey. Looking at AAB, A*AB if I work enough :P

    You spoke to them at all? The only contact I have had from York is the confirmation and a second confirmation on their receiving of my work reference to attach to the application.

    I have only had one confirmation, that was when I sent off my application. That's the only contact I have had with them for 3 months.
    What did you apply for at Manchester?
