    Its run by the Bank of England, and you work in a group to produce a presentation how to reduce the inflation rate to 2%. It's a big event and hundreds of schools compete.

    Your gcses are still pretty good, only the really competitive ones make a big deal out of them.
    The BoE. Really? WOW

    My GCSE's are OK but are much lower than others. What about you?

    I asked the economics representative on the Warwick Q&A thread about the A* at GCSE in maths (as it effects me too, I got an A).

    He said: "It's not a formal requirement for L100 or L112, though clearly we look for very good performance in Maths at all levels."

    As I mentioned before, I don't know where you heard it was a requirement...
    I certainly haven't heard that anywhere. Maybe you mistook them for Bath?
    Representatives disguise what they mean. It depends, what did you get at AS Levels. Also eco at warick is very mathmatical

    I got an A at AS Level in maths, and I'm predicted an A*. I also do further maths.
    I know it's mathematical, but as I mentioned before, they won't reject someone that's predicted an A* at A Level, JUST because they don't one at GCSE. They could still reject you, but that alone won't be the reason.

    As long as you show you're capable of doing better, (shown by your AS grade) they won't place too much weighting on a single GCSE grade alone. I definitely know I could have got an A*, despite not getting one. They can probably guess that from my AS levels, I did A LOT better across all my subjects. AS Levels and predictions are more important.

    Simlarly I did much better at A Level than GCSE's
    Will that be represented as poor GCSE's or good A Levels
    Anyway I hope that clarifies things. Have you done/drafted your PS?

    Yeah...my deadline was nearly 2 week ago
    And it depends on how good your A Levels/weak your GCSEs are I guess? Varies from university to university...

    Then why do they teach children who are learning that you should pronounce the word. These are educated people teaching the lessons of life.

    Hey guys. I got my AS results : AAAA in math econ and physics FM respectively and were predicted A*A*A*A.
    I am going to apply Cambridge, LSE, UCL or Warwick, Bath and an insurance
    Do I have a good chance to get into LSE and UCL or Warwick
    And UCL VS Warwick which one is better for economics course in future career?
    Thanks
    You have a good chance at all of them And the UCL v Warwick argument is down to personal opinion, they are both very good.

    What college you applying to at Cambridge?

    I highly doubt it, with the likes of Groat, Tateco and a few others.

    I see you're planning on applying for Econ with French...you're my competition

    No it is not average, for applicants who are applying for economics degrees in general, however is maybe average for those applying to top 10/5 universities for economics.

    Does anyone know how what UCL, LSE and Warwick pay more attention to in personal statements.
    Cambridge is renown for ignoring the EC section, do either of the above pay any attention to it?

    This thread is not average by any means, I'd say most people here who are applying to the top 5 have a good shot at them.

    I might sound stupid here, but what does EC stand for? Extra curricular ?
