    I'd agree with that. Bath, Durham, Essex, Manchester and Southampton are worth considering too.

    I'd say Warwick should be third because of the 5* research rating, but I might be biased. Bristol doesn't have a great reputation for research in Economics, with only a 4 in RAE. As for the entry requirements, it would be very difficult to get an offer from the LSE, UCL, Warwick or Nottingham without being predicted three A's, whatever the standard offer. Durham, Nottingham and Warwick all have higher entry standards than UCL despite it stating AAA requirements.

    for universities e.g. lse ucl...etc who require 3as, do they need both predicted 3as and also 3as at AS? or do they just want a predicted 3 as?

    I think being predicted AAA is more important than AS results. I know some schools don't even include AS results on the UCAS form unless students are not continuing the subject to A2. They're more likely to base their decision on predicted grades, personal statement, teacher references and possibly GCSE grades.

    Disagree about UCL being first and Bath. York should be there, and LSE is better than UCL. Agree with:

    1. LSE
    2. UCL
    3. Warwick
    4. Nottingham
    5. York

    Though I'd want to put Durham somewhere in there...

    I wouldn't worry if you don't get three A's at AS, I had to retake a few modules to get them. Just make sure you're predicted AAA for A2!

    I'm currently on a gap year working in an accounts department to get work experience in finance and to increase my funds for September. Should be going travelling in Europe this summer, but not totally organised yet. Hopefully, I'll be able to use experience to get better placements in London outside term time next year. I'm not even sure what I'm studying yet though. I'm still waiting for a reply for MORSE and not sure whether I'd choose that ahead of Economics or not if I get an offer. What do you think?

    A2 predictions probably will be based on AS results, but teachers will consider performance in lessons too. I was almost certainly going to accept my Economics offer until my MORSE interview day, where they sold the course very well. No idea what you mean by 'hardcore'!

    This is all slightly off-key. To begin with it seems to be terribly parochial and based on short-term league tables. There is no consideration of the long term impact these places have or have not made. Only LSE and UCL here have made any big real world impact. Bath, York and Nottingham owe their prominence mainly to domestic league tables.

    In any caser the premiss is all wrong: it should really be: 'where is the best place outside LSE and Cambridge?' (This is on the basis of historical performance, real world impact and national as well as international reatings, over many years, not just ten..)
