    do you think that if your applying to oxbridge other universities will discriminate against you? I know they cant see where else your applying but if you submit your ucas before october 15th its kinda obvious

    Which place do you think will be more likely to offer a place for Economics, Warwick or Bath?

    Well i looked on ALL the college websites and decided Pembroke was the one! lol what about you?
    St Catz, had a look at the websites, not quite all as some people had already chosen certain colleges for econ at my school (prepared people) , and talked to 2 or 3 teachers who studied at cambridge and came to the conclusion Catz would be good

    I agree, I've seen my friends who struggle with languages, far from easy..
    Definitely want to pick up Portuguese or Spanish at university and learn that alongside Economics, always been fond of languages

    Some schools have internal deadlines before Oct 15th, and there is no way they will know if you are going to get an offer from oxbridge, hence as they do not want to miss out on a top candidate they will still give you an offer if you merit one.

    if you had these grades would you think its a good idea to apply to cambridge, warwick, lse, ucl and durham? (i dont mind taking a gap year and reapplying)

    GCSE's:
    6.5A* 2.5A 1B

    AS: (ums will be included on ucas)
    Maths A (456/500) (97 in C3)
    Economics A (195/200)
    English Lit A (180/200)
    Physics A (272/300)
    Critical Thinking C (138/200)

    A-Level Predictions:
    Maths A*
    Economics A*
    Physics A*
    Further Maths A
    Snap man- I was thinking about applying to exactly the same 5 unis and wouldn't mind taking a gap year, though 1 or 2 choices may change lol. You're maths scores are nice, esp that 97 in C3-. Econ and Physics also good. I'd say that you have a decent chance of getting at least one offer, with a decent PS

    Just look at league tables then research around the 15th mark.
