    Yeah Nottingham had this great Economics course with a touch of Mandarin and a year in China which sounded great until I realised the course is a BA only.
    I think the maths content is also a bit flimsy on that course, I know someone who got in without even doing A Level maths

    There you go, I'm avoiding it then. No maths = no good.

    Same, I wanted to go to China and Japan but very few Universities offer degrees that accommodate this. My best bet is just do Economics and learn Japanese with the evening classes that Universities offer. (I hope it's as simple as that)

    Nothing wrong with a BA option, the Cambridge course is BA as well.

    Even though it's BA, it's highly mathematical which is what I'm looking for.

    Hey guys
    Just wanted to know what kinda AS Grades you should have to apply to places such as Warwick, LSE, UCL? Would AABBB or AAABB even ABBBB be good enough?

    It really depends on what your predicted grades are. If you get AAABB but are predicted A*A*A* then no, it won't matter.

    But if you get ABBBB and get predicted ABB then it may matter (assuming you are applying for straight economics, which is insanely competitive at those unis)

    Ideally you want to be predicted at least A*AA because that is the standard offer for Economics. However, it's important to realise that there are loads of courses with varying offers such as Economics and Finance, Actuarial Sciences, Accounting etc. Make sure your personal statement, reference etc. is all really good as well as there are more factors than your AS grades. GCSEs hold some sway as well, especially with the Universities that you've mentioned

    I know that for LSE, if you have AAABB and are predicted A*AA minimum you have a shot (like someone said above) since you have the minimum requirements - but I think it is important to stay realistic when picking your 5 unis to apply to. So for example, you can apply to 2 unis with A*AA requirments if you have AAABB and maybe one with ABBBB, but for the rest go for a combination of unis with requirments AAA, AAB, ABB perhaps. You may be perfectly able to achieve A*AA by the end of the year, its about convincing the uni. Good luck xx
