    Definitely. I wouldn't be surprised if all the universities had representatives on here in a few years time, in my opinion they're missing a trick by not doing it. By having the person who sits at the end of the emails from prospective applicants dedicated to an account on here you would probably significantly reduce the amount of questions you received.

    Didn't know that :eek: How many offers in total?
    It was on the pdf file that was attached to the thread. It said there were 3000 applicants of which 1/3 were made an offer. And of those made an offer, 27% started the course.

    Exactly how I felt. I can only assume that many who were made an offer had other offers which they firmed (Oxbridge, LSE, UCL etc...) and many offers were not met by the candidates. I can't remember how many places they said they had but 270 accepted into the first year seems reasonable so they do know what they're doing with regards to giving out offers

    Yeah.

    Edit: I guess I don't have to decide in the next two days and add in choices later but I'd rather it's just over and done with really.

    Lucky, my oxbridge deadline was one and a half weeks ago, so this has come a bit late. Having said that I still applied Warwick

    Cambridge, LSE (Maths and Econ), UCL, Warwick and maybe somewhere like York/Exeter/Bath or if I'm feeling daring i'd go for Nottingham.

    So! I'm applying this year to do Economics and had a few questions, which the knowledgable amongst you may be able to answer for me!
    I'm a third year student, because I messed up my first year, getting 4 D's. This was mainly due to a **** load of family problems and personal things, and it also effected my GCSE's (in my opinion) so I got some shockers there too! 2 A's, 4 B's 4 C's and a D (in art)...
    However this year I've completely turned it around, getting four A's in my AS's (Economics, Electronics, Maths & Physics), many of which were the highest in my year. I'm now predicted 2 A*'s in Maths and Economics, and an A in Physics. I'm also taking Further Maths to AS and am predicted an A in that too.
    Since turning around I've been thinking that I may have a chance at Oxford as I emailed them and they said there's no problem with the additional year and that I need to show clear upward progression from GCSE, which I definitley have done! I'm also interested in LSE, so my question is; what do you guys think the chances are of getting into these places? Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated!
    Yes you have shown some great improvements but DONT risk 2 choices by applying to LSE and UCL because they will be straight rejections . However maybe Oxbridge coz they do interviews so you may have a chance to sell yourself ..

    You see Nottingham as better and harder to get into than Bath? Interesting...

    I need to apply to one uni whos asking for 300 or 320 points as a backup, does anyone have any suggestions?
    I only want to put it on just incase I dont actually improve any of my grades (unlikely but my 6th form will want one to be there just in case so I gotta do it)

    Also, what do people think would be better; an A* in economics or B in maths?
