    Hello everyone, I received an offer for the Social Policy with Government course a couple of months back. It is a very small course compared to some of the others so I wanted to try and find anyone else who has an offer. It would be nice to meet some of you beforehand

    Thanks!

    Hey, I have an offer to study Social Policy with Government and my grades were

    GCSE: 7 A's 2B's and a C
    AS Level: ABBD
    A-level predicted: A*AA

    Although this may not look great in TSR terms, I was helped out by the fact that my school is terrible, 36% 5 A*-C GCSE rates and my personal statement, if you don't mind the hint of hubris, was quite good.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

    Your GCSEs are good. TSR standards are delusional. I have 1 A* 4 As 5 Bs and 1 C. AS politics which I am sitting soon will get a High B or Low A. Will be predicted AAA for a level. Do you think I have a shot?

    I think if you're predicted AAA, a strong personal statement will honestly do the trick. After meeting the department, they are far more interested in you as a person and your interest in the subject rather than the grades you get (obviously they are still important) and so a good PS with your grades should be fine.
