    Sent off my application in early January.

    I got 4 A's and 6 B's at GCSE (Extenuating Circumstances)

    And have already achieved AAB at A-level which meets the entry requirement (currently on a gap year). My PS in quite good aswell.

    But I was kinda put off by the number of applicants per place which was apparently 8:1 which seems very strange because Social Policy isn't exactly a popular course.

    So was wondering if anyone knows anyone who got in with similar grades to me? and whether it's as competitive as they say?

    I did MYP and I'm not sure what the GCSE equivalent is but my MYP grades were actually kind of bad to be honest and I still got in.

    Hey, how's the workload? High or manageable? And why do you think the student satisfaction rates for Social Policy are so low? Thank you lots.
