    L100 Economics
    LSE: Unsuccessful
    Oxford: Unsuccessful
    UCL: Unsuccessful
    Warwick: Unsuccessful
    York: Conditional AAB

    AS: AAAAA
    A2 Pred.: A*A*AAA
    Subjects: Maths, Economics, Physics, History, Gen Studies (doesn't count)

    York was really only supposed to be my insurance, i got told with my 100% in Economics module that it would be good to aim high!

    I'm only concerned about accepting my place at York because AAB seems low for my A*A*AAA prediction and IB generally recruits from York last.

    What should I do?

    It's obvious, go to York or take a gap year and reapply. Do you really need peoples advice on that?

    York is a good uni, surprised Warwick rejected you though. LSE is literally a lottery so don't get upset about that.
    Up to you, do you think you would like to take a year out bumming around or seeing the world or even getting a job? Could aid your application if you make out like you are doing something productive... Didn't for me though, I still got told to **** off...

    how does your reply help the OP in any way?

    i am thinking he submitted this thread to get peoples' advice on whether to take up the offer or reapply.

    with predicted grades like that i think you should take a gap year and make it really constructive with things like placements to add to your Personal Statement next time round. couple that with a set of strong A-Level results and you should fare better than a solitary AAB offer

    May be an obvious question, but do you actually want to go into IB? Because some people don't, just use it as a standard for what unis are good ... and it's not the best indicator.

    You do have options ... but to be honest, unless you get any of those four to consider you for a different course, you're not going to do better than York this year. How do you feel about a gap year?
