    Can't you visit Warwick one weekend - ok it won't be an open day but at least you would get a feel for the place.
    (Original post by NedStark)
    See if you can visit it independently. I'm sure they have something in place if you can't make it on the day.
    I thought it's not possible but I just checked on their website and there are independent visits. I probably wouldn't be able to see as much as on open days, but it's something. Thanks guys.

    So my UCAS journey has come to an end. I'd say I was one of the more earlier members on the thread and I've come across plenty of people who have all successfully secured offers at some great universities. For me I've got 4/5 offers and I'll be confirming what I already knew for some time and that is to firm LSE and insure UCL.

    Good luck to anyone still waiting for hear back, which I hope no one is. I'd like to thank everyone since this thread was a massive source of information and encouragement this past year.
    Congrats
    May I ask, what a levels did you take? And also, what gcse grades did you get?
    Best of luck?

    Hey all,
    I want to do an economics degree in the future. For a levels, am definitely taking maths and economics and probably politics too as it merges with economics really well. I'm looking to do a degree in economics where the course looks more at world issues rather than just looking at graphs.
    My question is, along with maths, economics and politics, what other a levels do you think I should take? Should I replace any subjects?
    I can choose a maximum of five however I'd prefer to do four but if you come up with a combination of subjects that suits five a levels, please do reply!
    Also, is chemistry a levels hard? And what about physics?
    Cheers

    Your current choices are fine, they're all respected subjects. There isn't really an optimal subject combination so just pick whatever you enjoy. Other good choices would be History, Geography, a language or if you enjoy Maths why not FM?

    Difficulty is relative, some may breeze through those subjects while others would struggle, but none of us could tell you for sure how you'd cope. It would depend on a number of factors: your ability in those subjects, how much work you're willing to put in, are you someone who works throughout the year or leaves everything till the end, etc.

    I definitely know I don't want to do a language! I'm struggling in GCSEs so I know I wouldn't cope at A Level.
    What A Levels are you taking and what GCSE grades did you get if you don't mind me asking?
    Thanks

    Isn't geography a soft/doss subject. If you are capable then you should really do a proper science instead if you are serious about getting into lse/oxbridge/warwick. Obviously if you can't handle a science then doing geography is fine.

    I would agree with you that the content is easy, however this is respective. I know some people who find it really hard. Correct me if I'm wrong but Geography is regarded as a facilitating subject. Also, I find it compliments Economics well.

    Absolute rubbish. Geography would be the go-to subject if history were not taken alongside M, FM, Econ.

    Don't listen to the comments about geography it is a well respected subject, i wouldn't advise taking politics as it isn't a traditional subject and ideally you want three out of four traditional subjects. Maths and economics are important, then either English, history, geography, or a science would be good. FM would probably be very useful for economics at a top uni although I have an offer for Economics and Management at Oxford and I am studying economics, maths, history and did English lit as AS

    Got an A*AA offer from UCL.

    I want to firm Cambridge (A*A*AB) and insure Warwick (A*AA) but I don't really know what is the best thing to do, I have only been to Cambridge, haven't visited Warwick or UCL (got an offer without being invited to an open day) and there is no chance I can go to Warwick open days in April because I'm not in UK at that time.
    What a levels are you doing out of interest?

    That seems like a strong combination and it is subjects which I feel I am strong at!
    What did you take at A2?

    I received an offer for Bsc economics a couple days ago! I'm both shocked and happy! I was starting to give up on hope after waiting 5 months to hear anything haha.

    For all you waiting, just don't give up hope just yet!
