As long as you have A at GCSE (which you appear to) I think you'll be fine.

A2 subjects: Business Studies, Drama & Theatre Studies, Government & Politics, History & General Studies
A2 (predictions or achieved): AAAB (A in General) UCAS projections. My school targets are all A's but that won't ever happen
Other: Received an acknowledgement email today saying it will take 2 to 4 weeks for a response. I went to both open days in June, but slightly worried as they said they don't really want to take people on with 4 A2's for business related courses. So we will just have to wait and see

I was always told by my school that History sets you up very well for uni if you want to do a BA, or show another side to you if you apply to a Bsc

I do love a bit of History But I could never do it at degree level!

It is a good course to do, and it's really enjoyable. I nearly did History and Politics but changed my mind. What bits do you do?

At AS we did Unification of Italy 1820-1872, Unification of Germany 1848-1890, and Ireland 1870-1920. At A2, we do Russia 1861-1961 for coursework and Germany 1900-1945 for the exam. Bit obscure I know!
How about you?:bigsmile:

They sound quite good actually. The Ireland bit would be interesting. I'm doing similar with Russia now and Germany last year.

British political history 1906 to 1951 and Anti-Semitism and the Holocaust at AS. British Political History 1951 to 2007 and Russia 1894 to 2005 (coursework) at A2.

Same! I went there for open day last June and loved it so much, the staff, lecture halls, labs, flight simulators and the city as whole were amazing and far exceeded expectations.

I'm just terrified about whether I can achieve the entry requirement grades for my course (AAA) I don't have a proper back-up plan. I don't want to study "similar" courses such as aerospace engineering/avionics or air transport management. Salford offers an almost identical course to what I want, but their entry requirement is like CCD or CDD, but they'll probably let people in with Es and Us as well and the student satisfaction and job prospects are obviously no where near as good as Leeds, so I'm definitely not prepared to go there!

Other: The only doubt in my mind is that I have not yet seen the facilities... if they're a bit aged then I may be put off. The lecture hall I sat in was. Other than that it is the most impressed I have been with a uni so far!

Mine to , although I hope none of the questions are on Thatcher or Blair because otherwise there's going to be a lot of ranting in them.
