    hye im thinking about taking a gap year and applying to economics.
    If I work hard I am hoping to get 4A*s(Economics biology and maths, chemistry) in the summer
    although my GCSE's were not good 4A*s 4As
    Can I ask those applicants who have got offers for economics am I in with a realistic chance of getting into economics at somewhere like Warwick, Cambridge or LSE? bearing in mind I would have already achieved my grades and also that my GCSEs were pretty average
    Provided you get 4A*'s and take up FM A2 during your gap year and build a strong PS I think you should get into LSE/UCL...
    Cambridge is slightly different as it depends on your Interview as well.

    Technically, yes. I remember we both went to that Queen Mary conference thing. So, yes I guess we're roughly from the same part of London

    Has anyone ever had an offer on ucas lowered without being told? I think york have reduced my offer from aaa to aab... unless 2 months ago I misread my offer?!

    I know I should be happy about this but before I hadnt even considered it...
    I have offers of an AAB (A in maths) for Exeter and AAB for Lancaster and Nottingham A*AA plus York. I have always wanted to firm Exeter but now have 2 choices for insurance if ucas is right!

    Everyone has got an AAB offer for York that I know of.

    So yes, you can choose between Lancaster/York for your insurance? I'd go for York

    Didn't you read the offer when it came through? Anyway, boils down to two things for why York > Lancaster

    better reputation for Economics + generally
    not in the middle of nowhere (York is closer to York town than Lancaster is) but if you can drive that probably wont be such a big factor

    I'm sure there are lots of threads with the same issue.

    Save making an entire thread about it, does anyone know if a rejection from LSE is game over for the following year? As in, are re-applicants automatically rejected even if their application is vastly better this time around?

    I've been to a few open days from my offers, but really I'm not too keen on them. I would rather wait back another year and reapply to LSE as well as a few other universities I didn't list the first time.

    Of course not, they'll just consider you as a new applicant, I'm thinking about doing the same, just going to see if I like Bath

    Last year I applied to LSE, UCL and Warwick - Rejected.
    This year I have an offer from one of them and am waiting to here from the other two.
