    Good luck! What're you planning to read?

    Do predicted grades really matter a lot, btw? For example, if some course at X Uni requires ABB and your predicted grades <i>are</i> ABB, would they possibly reject you on the sole basis that your predicted grades aren't AAB or AAA or something? You know, wanting a bit more?
    Law!

    You know, I have no idea, because my predicted grades were kept secret from me! But I didn't do awesomely for prelims so... ok I really don't know. It really depends on the strength of your PS and reference. Like you could be predicted, yet not get in, or not predicted yet you may get in. Etc. But that being said, it'll be safe to be predicted AAA~

    Getting that reference is going to be the tough part. :P I'm one of those students who- hmm, doesn't really speak up/contribute a lot in class except when called upon, so I don't know if my tutors will be able to talk extensively about me apart from "oh, good student, good grades" (just an example), etc.

    Maybe I should aspire to be the ultimate ass-kisser next year or something.
    My teacher asked me to submit a draft of my reference, stating my strong points, achievements, etc. You can intervene in the writing, and well, even so, you still have one year to make a difference! What's most important is that you KNOW you want to read Lit and you can thus express it on your PS.

    Predicted grades are important, but I think you'll be fine as long as the they meet the standard offer. Work on the Personal Statement and couple that with a decent reference from your tutor and you'll be well set.

    sorry to digress. but which school do u think has a good econs course aside from the usual bigwigs aka ucl, lse,oxb,warwick? im thinking of doing econs (initially wanted to read law but decided to stick to sth im sacademically stronger in) but cant get into any one of the 5 as mentioned due to pne very unsightly "B" grade in my A levels....
    Hey, you got AAB for the A Levels right?
    Have you actually applied and received rejections from all of them, including warwick? From what i see, the standard offer is AAAb, meaning if you have at least one AO subject with a B grade, you might be given some leeway for an offer.

    Warwick's website lists tuition at 10900 GBP (for arts/soc sci courses). I guess the 13k only includes living expenses and accom? A rep from U Manchester once said that a rough guide to total expenses out of London is tuition fees x2. Prob ~20k if you scrimp?

    yep. Course fees, living expenses, and accom. Includes (some) travelling as well.

    Hmm. Or did I mean 15k GBP? Cause it *is* possible to actually survive on 40 GBP a week on average, sometimes even going down to 10 GBP a week.

    Cause I try not to count groceries in since I have about $150 being deposited in my bank account every month

    Wow, even course fees? I'm impressed! That's less than 100k for a degree alone.

    Correct, but the projected tuition fee Warwick has sent me, together with my offer letter, puts it modestly at 11600 pounds, with possible increase for 2011/2012 year- the year i will be entering. That leaves 2400 pounds for food and accomodation?Likely?

    I think Narve meant 15k pounds, more plausible.
