    Ok, I've posted before for a different question :P But this is related to my choices, and any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Ok, AS Results are as Follows

    B - Maths (A, B & C in modules, resitting C)
    B - Economics ( A & C in modules, resitting C)
    C- Geography (A & C in modules, resitting C, 2 UMS off B overall)
    C - Business (A & C in modules, resitting C, self-taught too)
    C - Critical Thinking ( B & C in modules)

    Predicted A2 results
    B - Maths
    A - Economics
    A - Geography
    B - Business

    & Also doing an EPQ, which I'm aiming for A*/A

    I have a strong personal statement, and here are the Universities i am considering for MANAGEMENT/BUSINESS&MANAGEMENT:

    Nottingham - AAB
    Manchester - AAB
    Reading - AAB
    Leicester - ABB
    Durham - ABB

    Do I need to add a lower entry one? I.e. BBB? Which should I swap it for?

    Thanks!

    If you have good references and a good PS, no, you should be fine.

    EDIT: I meant assuming you can achieve the grades (which you should be able to since you managed to get modular As before). If you're asking because you want to have a secure offer, then what I said above applies. I had BBB at AS, a great PS and excellent references and got an AAA offer, so don't fret

    Thanks for your help, also, a couple of other questions for you or anyone else that can help me :P

    On the employment part of the application, shall I add the business that I run, and put that I was director? Or will this make me sound like an arrogant b*tch? Because even though I was self-employed, it's not the same is it?

    Also, I've added all my AS achieved grades, and I am resitting 4 as mentioned in the opening post, so do I need to add 3 'qualifications' for each subject? (An achieved AS, a resitting 'pending' AS, and a pending A2?)


    Thank you for any help in advance

    That's what I'm thinking, but I can't decide which Uni to swap it for! Nottingham and Manchester are my Favs, I live in Reading, and I don't want to swap the 2x ABB's.

    Dilemma!

    Then keep Nottingham & Manchester as your TOP then and think about getting rid of Reading if you WANT to move away?

    Then look at other things such as;
    - Which has the better record of; Student success and Employment afterwards?
    - Better opportunites for things like Volunteers, Sports if your interested in that sort of thing?
    - Union & Social life?

    Hmmm when it comes to the employment part, what does the section say? I remember it saying something like "any paid employment", so I assume it wouldn't harm your app to put it down. I don't think its presumptuous; on the contrary, (in the mindset of an admissions tutor) when sifting through apps, it would catch my eye - it suggests you have excellent inter-personal + organisational skills already, and these will only flourish at uni.

    No its not arrogant, it just shows you're aware of your strengths; take pride in the fact you can balance work and studies! If you are a bit worried though, you could leave it out of the employment section and slip it into your PS to be on the safe side.

    As for the 'qualifications' part, I don't remember too much when I put mine in, though I think that's what you'll need to do. Maybe ask the head of your College/Sixth Form, since he/she is more familiar with the whole thing.

    ...and its no problem :thumbsup:
