I have Aston as one of my UCAS options and upon research I think it would be a really good fit for me.
Unfortunately I've missed your open days so I've been unable to ask questions. Upon looking at the Which? Uni stats, I see that Business and Management has an offer rate of 68% compared to Business and Management with Public Policy at 84%. Also, the grades are AAB and ABB respectively from what I can tell.
At AS I achieved ABBB, although this year I'm hoping to achieve at least AAB, if not my predicted grades of AAA. Would I have a better chance of getting in by choosing Business and Management with Public Policy? I study Geography, Business and Media and I enjoy looking at wider concepts within society, so I feel I would enjoy the Public Policy side of things. However, for my other choices I have just chosen Business Management. Just wondering that on the basis of receiving an offer, would this be a safer/less popular option?
