    why is it? One of the places might be undersubscribed compared to the other, and be more likely to allow you in with a slipped grade.

    It makes sence putting two down.

    Well better sence than putting only one down, missing a grade, ending up in clearing, then finding out that your insurance choice was letting peeps in with lower grades......

    Comments:low offer because i had the option to go in in 2nd year due to being an english student + A levels are worth more than scottish highers (more like an AS), but instead i chose a low offer, an easy 1st year and my final year of tuition fees paid (so i'm not disadvantaged by doing a 4 year course). absalutely loved the place, realyl want to live there for 4 years (unlike st andrews where 4 hours was too many)

    Insurance: NONE!!!!

    Another prospective Warwick student. I'm going to be studying MORSE in September. What course did you apply for at Cambridge? Maths or Economics? I got rejected for Economics at Emmanuel.

    Hi,mg84:

    I applied for Economics at St Cathrine`s.
    Actually, I don`t want to go to Cambridge that much because I have been here for almost 2 years (I came from China two years ago to do A-level here). I really don`t want to be in the same place for another 3 years. Besides, I really like Warwick- the campus , the reputation of the departments( both Maths and Eco).

    I have read through some of the posts concerning Economics couses & uni, etc, and I found that you have chosen Warwick over UCL- you have definitely made the right decision! I didn`t even bother to apply LSE or UCL, just don`t like the idea of spending 3 years of uni life in the centre of London ( although I would like to work in London after graduation, or probably do Master degree at LSE). Plus I know people who got much lower AS level grades than me being acceped by LSE or UCL ( a girl got no As in her four subjects was interview by UCL), and I guess the only explanation for that would be they are international students like me.

    So, I will see you at Warwick in September!

    Firm: Warwick (unconditional so no insurance)
    Course: BA English and French

    Declined: Nottingham (English/French), St. Andrews (English/French), UCL (English), York (English)
    Rejected: Durham (University College, English)

    Someone please tell me I'm making the right decision by choosing Warwick! I might still visit UCL and York though before I make it official. Now I just have to convince them to give me home status for fee purposes. I was able to do this with Nottingham (fee status evaluation was done before actual decision).

    If you think that then I wouldn't put it down as your insurance, cus if you miss out on Kings but still get the grades for Greenwich then you will have to go there.
