    The typical offer/entry requirements for Economics at Uni of Nottingham are A*AA/AAA - I was wondering whether anyone knows which of these grade combinations tends to be the most common offer given to successful applicants? I always assumed it was roughly a 50:50 split but thought I would ask out of curiosity and because I am definitely applying for Economics here and it would most likely be my top realistic choice (ideal one is Warwick but I appreciate how competitive Economics there is).

    Thanks if you can help

    Bump. Is this in the right section, or would it be better in the Economics section?

    They tend to give out A*AA, but they were in clearing this year with AAA if I remember correctly. I imagine that if you miss the A*AA and get AAA you still probably stand a solid chance of getting in. In general, though, the grades that unis want for economics tend to be A*AA.

    AAA and they will take you in most cases, albeit the offer may be A*AA. (A in maths is essential) if you get AAB and the B is in maths, you are in a bad position. If the B is in something else (unrelated subject) you will be in a stronger position to get in.

    I got an offer of AAA this year for econ and econometrics, although i did pick up further maths as in my second year which was probably why they gave me a lower offer.

    So you ended up with 3 A2s, and 2 AS (one dropped at the end of year 12 and FM that you picked up in year 13) I'm guessing?
