    So I just got my results and it's not looking good...

    I got ABBB (econ, maths, physics, chem) (predicted A*,A,B,?)
    I was aiming for AAAB so I'm quite stressed out

    I'm remarking physics, but I need to resit 2 modules (1 chem and 1 maths).

    Just wondering if resits will affect my application to read economics at Warwick? And do I have a realistic chance at getting an offer?

    I got 8.5 A*s, 1.5 As and 1 B for GCSE if it helps

    Thanks for any help

    Warwick economics has an entry rate of 10% compared to the applications it receives (~230 enrolments per year to ~2500 applicants per year), so your chances are already quite low . However, your AS marks will have some sway, but your predicted grades more so. So long as you can get predicted the entry requirements, you will get looked at. Then you have to make sure you have an awesome personal statement! :teeth:

    I'm applying for Economics at Warwick. I have just got my AS results and got AAABD (econ, business, sociology, math, gen) I am dropping business and resitting Maths to try and get an A.
    I have been told I will probably be predicted A*A*AB A in Maths, B in gen.
    think I have a chance?
