    don't worry about retaking Maths (I don't think you even need it for Economics) lol that's why.
    Lol at this. Maths is the most important subject for econ, more so than econ itself.

    Before this thread gets locked, I'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has helped along the way!

    I've managed to make a lot of progress this year and I really hope I can continue that into my final year of school. Not only that, but also by getting more work experience during next summer to expand my network and create loads of opportunities.

    There are so many things I didn't think were possible - Cambridge residential, work experience at PwC, AAAB, getting into my school's Russell Group (and staying in it!) and a few other things here and there.

    You've been amazing!! See you (hopefully) very soon!

    Okay so fingers crossed this helps...

    GCSEs: 1A*, 5As, 5Bs
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I was kind of disappointed with these, my mocks were pretty much all A*s and some of my marks were really disappointing. I was 7 marks in total off 1A*, 7As and 3Bs and OCR lost some coursework so it could've even been 1A*, 8As and 2Bs. But luckily it has motivated me to do really well for my AS exams, and I really know every mark counts.

    In my school, we generally did really badly and I somehow was still in the top 25 people of the year. So that's probably the only reason why I'm sort of okay with my grades.
    AS subjects: Maths, Biology, Politics and History
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I really enjoy maths and politics and luckily I'm getting good marks in these subjects. However biology I'm finding tough and history is a bit all over the place lmao. I do regret my options, I wish I had picked maths, FM. politics and history.
    What I want to achieve:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    AAAB in Maths, Politics, Biology and History ACHIEVED
    90%+ average in Maths and Politics ALMOST
    St Andrews Summer School to do Economics with Management
    Peterhouse Cambridge Residential ACHIEVED
    PwC Insight Week placement ACHIEVED
    Looking forward to the future:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    A*AA overall in Maths, Politics and History
    EPQ on something economics related (e.g. impacts of leaving the EU)
    Place at a good university (St Andrews/Bath/Exeter etc.) to study Economics
    Current Stats:
    ALPS: BBBB
    Predicted: AABB (M, P, H, B)
    Target: AAAB (M, P, B, H)
    Current: AABB (M, P, H, B)
    (current and predicted grades updated termly)

    Dec Mocks: AABD (M, P, H, B)
    March Mocks: AAAB (M, P, B, H)

    Post exams prediction: ACCD (M, B, P, H)

    Actual grades: AAAB (M, P, H, B)
    My modules:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Maths - C1, C2, M1
    Politics - People and Politics and Governing the UK
    Biology - Biochemistry, Cells, Exchange and Transport and Genetics
    History - Germany 1918-89 and Fascist Italy

    It's a small group where the people likely to get an offer from a RG get help with personal statements, interviews, residential etc...
