    Yep! Not sure what's the best way to do well in it though tbh, I've never done it before! Any suggestions?

    Applied to Sheffield and Cambridge for straight Economics, Warwick for Econ & Industrial Organisation, Edinburgh for Econ & Maths and LSE for Business Mathematics & Statistics (to then specialise in Economics)

    GCSE: 2A*, 7A, 2B (Special Circumstances)
    AS: AAA (Maths, Business Studies, Physics)
    Predictions: A*A*Aaa (Maths, Business Studies, Physics, AS Further Maths, EPQ)

    Averaged 90% UMS at AS, messed up with subject choices initially that's why I only have 3 for last year, and my school doesn't offer Economics so took Business Studies as an alternative and have self-studied Economics. All explained in Personal Statement and SAQ. Still waiting on offers/rejections so fingers crossed somewhere wants me! Good luck everyone!

    Me too! It's my first choice without a doubt, I'm obsessed. Why's that, just because it's less competitive?

    WOW, CONGRATULATIONS! You got a really low offer, reckon that's something to do with you coming from a low achieving school etc? I really need to get round to sending off my UCAS if they're giving out offers already :/

    Yup! It's probably because of widening participation :yep:..you'll get an offer if I have one. No shadow of a doubt! And good luck!!

    Thanks, though I'm not sure :/ My school has a really high level of attainment (grammar school) and my teachers all say Bristol seem to hate applications for Economics from our school (every year people getting offers from Cambridge/LSE/UCL etc but not Bristol). And now, of the 5 or so places there are for Econ w. SCE in Germany, you've taken one of them!

    Haha ah thats not fair! Well..I probably shouldnt complain and nice way of putting it xD academically you're ten times better than me so it'd be stupid for Bristol to reject you because of what school you attend...
