    1. I am planning on early applying to Leeds Uni for both their Politics and their Politics and Arabic courses for 2017 entry . I have 3-4 weeks experience with an MP in Westminster and by then I may have some experience done in an arab embassy in London. I have been told that experience with Mp's in and out of parliament can result in reduced offers etc. Can anyone tell me if they have had similar work experience and how it has affected their offers? Thanks.

    I don't see how having work experience can decrease the likelihood of you getting an offer?

    I mean has it affected offers in terms conditional/unconditional or reduced offers. As this has been the case with various people I have talked to however only from my secondary school, which has tended to be slightly favoured at some universities that's why I've posted up on here.

    Oh, I'm not sure then. I only have a standard offer for Politics for 2017 entry. I'm just a commoner I don't know anyone who got an unconditional offer from Leeds.

    Im not expecting an unconditional tbf 😂Thanks though. What grades did you get a AS ? My predicted grades will hopefully be just above the requirements but my subjects aren't that strong tbf.

    Good enough to get an offer To be fair, as long as your AS grades are decent and good enough to get the predicted grades required then you're sorted. Make sure your personal statement is good and I'm pretty sure you will get an offer.
    I don't think they care too much about the 'strength' of your subject. My friend does 2 'soft' subjects and is predicted AAB but managed to get an offer for Law which is more competitive than Politics. Just make sure your predicted grades are good enough (and realistic)
