    So I definitely want to apply to PwC's Flying Start Degree as it is an incredible opportunity. I would regret it if I did not apply at all.

    is anybody applying for a different degree (either finance related or not) but also this sponsored accounting degree?
    I think I'm going to have to talk about accountancy and the other degree I am applying for in the same PS even though theyre different as otherwise I will miss both opportunities eg if I didn't get into pwc flying start, missing out on the degree i'd rather study

    Are there any ways to get around this

    Any advice thanks

    Hi I think I'm in the same boat as you I'm planning to apply to Loughborough uni for a finance and accounting degree in case I don't get into the PWC's course.

    It used to be sponsored now I think its just subsidized which is disappointing. Yet its still money off

    Remember for this course there a lot of other tests (Numerical reasoning etc) so if you excel on those you'd still have a good chance.

    How about your extra curricula's?

    I don't have hobbies such as sports, but I've taken part in a lot of business/accountancy related competitions?

    Also I have things such as volunteering for the elderly and work experience at an accounting firm plus managing the eCommerce side of my mother's business?

    How about you? Plus do you think this will be enough?

    I looked on the brochure, it says to be invited to the group task and interview stage they will decide if you get a place depending on your grades and personal statement.

    So our personal statements have to be really good

    I've only done a bit of volunteering and the NCS course and AS grades of ABC and A* in Certificate in Financial Studies? Do you think that's enough?

    Yeah I think that will be enough but you should make sure your teachers predict your a level grades as AAB which I think you can definitely achieve looking at your AS grades and also make sure your personal statement is really good ~
