    Assumptions:

    For the 2009-10 admissions cycle, Durham had:
    1145 applicants, of which they made
    507 offers (be it conditional or unconditional), of which
    273 firmed or insured, of which
    143 entered Durham either in 2010 or deferred to 2011.

    So Durham (with a comparatively easier A*AA offer) made offers to 44.3% of applicants, of which 53.8% of them firmed or insured and of them 52.4% eventually got into Durham - giving 8 applicants per place. That's still a high offer percentage, no?
    Do you think the same figures are apparent for similar Unis such as Warwick, Bath and even UCL? Of course, I expect Oxford and LSE to be less.

    Warwick was 93% in 2008 and 2009 entry.

    But yeah if you follow the conversation up the thread I was arguing that the idea that less than 20% of people who apply get an offer is ludicrous.

    Isn't it obvious to people that isn't the case?! I mean I am worried about offers, but not to that extent hehe!

    93% of Applicants received an offer from Warwick in 08/09? And they have continued this "standard offer" regime into 2012 entry? Seems like a decent place to apply to ensure an offer, even if it is a hard offer to meet!

    Going to apply for maths this year. I still haven't decided whether to apply for Oxbridge yet though. Other unis I am looking at are Bath, Bristol, Warwick, Durham, Birmingham and Nottingham.

    Which is generally considered the 'best' uni for maths out of Birmingham and Nottingham?

    Is everyone done/nearly done with their PSs and UCAS now?

    I am confused about the work experience section of UCAS; could mention some stuff, but it will add no value more or less to my maths application. Alternatively, if I (can I?) leave it blank, will it disadvantage my applications to top unis?

    I have done with my PS and UCAS application few weeks back, and submitted to my college's placement center.

    I don't think having no work experience would put you in disadvantage position in maths application, though I might be wrong. A lot of my friends or seniors had no working experience yet still got the offer, so I don't see the significant difference in it.

    I have written my PS but I haven't finished my UCAS

    I have no work experience at all. It is "irrelevant" for Maths according some admissions people.

    Nottingham is better, but judging by your choices it looks like they'd be a last choice, Nottingham is AAA and Birmingham is AAAa AS FM or AAB with FM.

    Expect UCL to make you an offer for sure if your Maths UMS is 94%+

    I'm sure there's a way they do it, ask a 2011 entry UCL student, they'll be able to tell you. I won't be applying since my UMS isn't high enough, but I emailed admissions and that was the response they gave me.
