    Why would you do both in January?

    Work and Leisure in January, then Global Economy in June.

    That sounds a bit foolish.

    If you work hard for it, I dont really see an issue. If anything, 6 months along the line you'll have much more freedom to study for your other subjects and maybe retake 1/2 of the modules (if you arent happy with the score)

    Hey guyssss!

    I'm applying for 2012 entry too (which is why I'm on this thread :ahee:)

    I'm planning on applying to Cambridge, Warwick, Nottingham, Bristol and Southampton
    I just wanted to find out if any of you know which of those universities accept an A* grade that has already been acheived? I've already got one from last year, and I'm also doing 3 other A2s this year, so I wasn't sure whether they'd say need to meet the offer with my 3 current subjects?
    Or, for example if they'd reduce an A*AA offer to AA?

    Thanks!

    Cambridge should accept the A*. Though this depends on college and individual circumstances.
    Warwick often offer A*AAA offers to those who do FM.
    The rest should be fine although Notts and Bristol may lower the offer for those doing 4 A2's, Soton as well I think.

    Are your grades being cashed in?

    Although I only (this year) do AS FM... My A* is in Economics (sorry I should have mentioned that )

    Yep it's been cashed in, I got an overall grade on my results sheet Not sure how to put my A* down on UCAS though, I moved school and I did the AS at my old school, so it won't let me put it down because of the leaving date, as it was certificated after I left and with a different exam board...and my teachers have no clue! :confused:
    (Sorry I doubt you do either! )

    Best wishes for you too!

    Ah I see, great achievement nonetheless. Again Cambridge will depend upon college. Some do not specify the A*, whereas others do - usually Maths or Economics. Mostly maths though.

    Warwick require an A* in Maths usually and if you do FM A*AAA and if you don't A*AA.

    The rest will be fine and as I said the offer may even be lower as you do 4 A2's.

    I'm pretty sure you can put it down on UCAS. But to be sure email UCAS/exam board(s) or ask your school.

    What are your other 3 subjects?

    You're in a good position assuming GCSE years went pretty well. That's a good subject combo. Very rigorous!

    Good luck and should you have any questions ask away. Most people are quite knowledgable around here X

    Haha my GCSEs and not having A2 FM are my weak points unfortunately.. (Well they're quite low for Cambridge and some of the places i'm applying, from what i've heard)

    I got 4A*s, 4As and 2Bs (mind that 2 of my A*s are aida and cida distinctions, so not sure whether they'd see me as having 2A*s)

    *sigh* some of my subjects are abit of a pain at times, namely Chemistry...

    LOL I'm pleasantly surprised you guys are helpful, I thought you'd all be trying to sabotage eachother or something

    Yeah, prefer staying in London if possible. What are the grade requirements for Southampton? Do you think if I get AAB, will SOAS let me off?

    And I forgot to mention another thing, would it affect my application much if its my third year of Alevels?? I used to do Chem and Bio but dropped them after the first year, and took Business and continued with Maths again.
    Yes they will I know SOAS accepted two people who got BBB this year for economics

    No harm in seeing how things turn out. A good interview can swing things around. You're GCSEs are below average but don't worry too much.

    Most people are nice enough around here. Not sure about sabotage :ninja: I applied last cycle so I'm going uni this year

    I'm going for 4/5 of your uni combination so we may well end up in the same position next year (assuming all goes well)
