    My friend got in to their accounting course and had something like ACD. I know that's not quite economics but there we go
    Leicester was her insurance choice.

    I had an offer for Economics at Leicester. I was predicted AAB + A in the EPQ, and they gave me an offer of ABB.

    I was predicted ABB, got BBB and luckily made my offer. 2 marks off an A in business which was annoying but I'm just happy that I made my offer.
    I didn't do an epq because I had my citizenship test that I'm studying for alongside a-level and i was bartending on the weekends aswell so I didn't want the extra time commitment or to make it harder for myself.

    In my PS i mentioned a foreign exchange work placement that I had done in Germany and generally talked about why I wanted an economics degree i.e. the fact that I make money buying and selling online currently and I am interested in owning my own business in the future so I thought the degree would be beneficial as well as fun.

    I'm doing BA economics too and took English lit, business studies and biology. You've got experience from your economics a level so you should be fine imo

    Not me, but a friend who'll definitely be starting at Leicester this year with me got into Economics through clearing. She got a B in economics and Cs in Maths and Biology. She was meant to do Optometry at Aston but didn't get in, unfortunately.

    There's so much maths in economics at every uni. That's what economics is.
