    All five offers now! From Leeds / Aberdeen / Sheffield / Cardiff / Glasgow, 36 / 30 / 35 / 34 / 34 IB points respectively. Rather surprised that I received all five offers, though not applying to the ridiculously competitive southern unis did help.

    What course? I applied for the BSc in Economics, and i still haven't heard from them. Sorry to hear you didn't get in though, I think they are douching out on UK/EU and want more internationals due to the higher fees.
    Yeah the dept emailed me saying they 'had made a positive preliminary decision on my offer' but were 'unclear' on my Home status (I am Scottish but currently live alone in London -gap year- which is my UCAS address). Once I replied clarifying that I was Scottish and yes, wouldn't be paying, they suddenly have ceased email correspondence with me.....

    Coincidence? I think not.

    Thanks! I'm deciding between Glasgow and Sheffield. Sheffield seems like an great all-round university but with a not-so-amazing Economics department, so I'm not so sure. Ehhh.

    M1 is pretty straightforward, but if you don't have the physics mindset then it'd probably be more difficult.

    Sorry to but into the thread, but I applied for Maths and Econ at Nottingham if that counts to be a member of this thread + i do econ :yeah:

    Ask Alex, I think he was considering going into Actuary



    I think imperial might do one? Id say Ucl/LSE
    Can't find any econ at Imperial I'm afraid. Yeah, I was already looking into UCLs Econ and Stats BSc. Just checking if there were any better ones. Other than LSE, it seems not though.

    Is anyone thinking of going into actuary (especially those who haven't made their minds up yet?)

    An economics degree is one of the degrees employees in these firms want, but it will take longer to be fully qualified..... Seems good though
    Just saw I was quoted regarding this so tracked back to find this post. Yes I've applied for a couple of actuarial positions, and plan to apply for a couple more. Economics is fine to apply but (as you've mentioned) we don't get any exemptions for the exams.

    Really!? Wow, that is just so unfair. Its ridiculous though, people with amazing grades are getting turned down due to the fees. I will try to get in through Adjustment though, seeing as I am sure to get better grades than my conditional for Nottingham. But now I don't know if I feel like going to a university where the staff are douchebags.

    Ah I know they do some kind of Statistics and Finance combined, thought they might have done on with economics too.
