    The relationship between them is really interesting and how they interact, but there seems to be so many things wrong with the way politics works, maybe you can fix that?

    Your universities are all quite similar in terms of quality, how would you rank them if you got offers from all five?

    To be fair this thread is 7 months old! And I've been giving lots of advice
    You should become the moderator for this Economics forum

    Warwick would be first without a doubt

    Followed by Nottingham, Bath, Bristol, Southampton. Was originally worried about not getting any offers, but got given a good confidence booster by the Bristol offer. Hopefully more to follow

    You applied to Cambridge, UCL, Warwick, Nottingham and Bath right?

    Yes because there's absolutely nothing from with how economics works *cough* generalisations assumptions theories maths *infinite list* maybe you can fix that

    I'm just kidding, but yes the flaws in politics won't change until people demand them! So I blame the people *shifting the blame to others, ah I would rock at being a politician* :lol: but no, I'm probably just going to be another sell-out and go into banking/consultancy :awesome:

    Doh, *insert witty economics joke here*

    How does an economist prepare for interview...

    They don't, leave it to the invisible hand to do all the work

    *feeble laugh* that was so bad but yeah...
    :teehee:

    It's all good, just... waiting and stuff. Track hasn't even made it into my top sites yet
    That's a good sign. There's no need to check Track anyway, just wait for the automatic emails and check then.

    哈哈哈 好啊! Well HELLO best university in China... you sure aim high :rolleyes:

    Ah, what kind of cool stuff do they teach you there :awesome:
    I've never studied Chinese before so this is a complete beginner's course but it's pretty intensive - we have classes for Listening, Speaking and Writing (Comprehensive) with dictation tests almost every day. I'm doing more hours of study here than I did at uni proper. But I think it's worth it - I can write maybe 400-500 characters and recognise maybe 600-700 so far.

    I need some advice. I've been so confused. I sent my UCAS off having added 3 choices. LSE (A&F) Birmingham, Nottingham (Economics)

    I now need to add a back up and another choice. IS RHUL a good back up? I don't really know much about it. Or should I add Sheffield instead? And for my 4th option I'm confused between Manchester/York. I like E+F course at York and the E with F at Sheffield. I would add those two but I'm scared I won't get any offers (or perhaps just 1 from Sheffield).

    I have AABB at AS and predicted A*AAA + a in AS FM. My B's at AS are worrying me but I did have my referee explain my circumstances and I was also 2% off my As. If I add York and Sheffield would I be taking a risk? Should I go for Sheffield and RHUL? Sorry if I sound really crazy ... this thing has been bugging for weeks hence I decided send my UCAS off with just 3 choices.:headfire:

    Lord vulture,
    Sorry I didn't reply to your posts yesterday, I was real busy, if I get time then hopefully I will do the other questions as well.

    Alex, Thnx for the tons of help you gave me on my PS, got an offer from bath and interview at Cam on Tuesday. What jobs are you applying for ?

    Well done on the offer and good luck with the interview on Tuesday.

    I'm applying for a mixture of jobs - banking, consultancy and IT at the moment, then later maybe actuarial and accountancy as well. After that perhaps postgrad but I'm not sure that I want to study for another year.

    I'm glad so many people appreciate my economic humour :awesome:

    Ah so true! I am just getting a lil sick of everyone asking me whether anything has changed. IDEC

    Sounds intense, so you're a full on expatriate? :facepalm: silly me, I just assumed that because you were born in HK you knew some or something but horray! 汉语很useful that's probably more than I know, and my relatives are Chinese.

    Just Legen...

    I don't know much about Sheffield and York outlook. But looking at your grades, I'll say, you'll get an offer for Economics at Manchester if you did apply

    Nah, but I considered Manchester. I'm confused because I like the course at Sheffield. I always fluctuate and then make a very weird last minute decision :rolleyes: lol

    :cry2:

    1st one went well but the less said about the 2nd the better... I'll found out on the 5th (or whenever they hand out rejections) how bad it went.

    Oh really? Just couldn't answer the questions or what? Just remember that it is not a final hurdle, it forms part of the overall application profile
