    I'm predicted 37 points but 665 at higher, ideally i want to study economics at Nottingham, i think i have a pretty strong PS, will i have a strong chance of getting in at Nottingham? Also i'm looking at York, Leeds and Sheffield. I don't take Maths at higher, just standard.

    You have a very high chance with 665, as IB is worth far more than A-levels. However, personal statements and references are still important, they will look at those before anything else!

    But overall yes, you have a fantastic chance.

    P.S: Do you not have a fifth choice?
