    I got BBCC in my A-levels in Maths, History, Economics and Psychology (dropped Psych)
    I'm predicted AAA. School usually predict 1 grade higher but because of extenuating circumstance it moved from AAB to AAA.
    Planning to apply to:
    Bristol - Eco - AAB (contextual)
    Exeter - Eco - (A*AA - AAB)
    Leeds - Eco - (AAA to ABB) depending on Access to Leeds
    Edinburgh - Eco - ABB min. entry requirement
    Essex - Eco - BBB

    Is it likely that I would get offers or are my choices far to aspirational?
    Any reply would be useful feedback
    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    I suspect you are aiming pretty high yes. I would have dropped Exeter and added in something less competitive. There is always UCAS extra. It does depend a bit on your extenuating circumstances. I hope the school reference refers to them in some detail.

    I got A*AAC in my AS Levels in Maths, Economics, Physics, Critical Thinking (I did the Maths A-Level a year early and do the F Maths one this year). This year I'm doing Further Maths AS + A2, Econ A2, Physics A2 and CT A2.
    I'm predicted A*A*A*AC in Maths, F Maths, Econ, Phys, CT respectively (haven't 'cashed in' the Maths A-Level because modules can be interchanged between Maths and Further).
    Applied to:
    Cambridge
    Durham
    Warwick
    Bath
    Bristol
    Currently have offers from Bath and Bristol (A*AA), awaiting replies from my top three.

    I was thinking about applying to Nottingham for Industrial Economics which is offered at AAB. Is this a good degree for a career in IB, Front/Middle Office???

    Also if I applied to Exeter for Econ and Finance would i have a better chance or is it still slim?
