    Is there a chance I won't receive any offers and have to go through adjustment?

    Is it risky to aim for such high entry requirement

    I'm thinking of applying to the following

    -LSE Economics- A*AA
    -UCL Economics- A*AA
    -Warwick Economics- A*AA
    -Bristol Economics- A*AA
    -UCL Economics and Geography AAA

    I'm predicted A*A*A* I got 10A*s at GCSE and AAA at AS with 95UMS in maths AS

    Is there a chance I won't receive any offers and have to go through adjustment?

    Is it risky to aim for such high entry requirement unis?

    Thanks
    You mean Extra not Adjustment.

    And in what way do you think you are too ambitious? Your academic profile is (as I'm sure you know) fine for the universities you have listed.

    You'll be fine
    I asked nearly the same question last year, I applied for PPE at Oxford, LSE, UCL, Warwick and Durham and I got offers for Warwick and Durham and withdrew from UCL because of their under 18s policy (wish I had read that before ). Some people said my choices were quite crazy/too ambitious. Well, I think with such choices it's probably harder to get 5/5 offers but it's likely to get at least one offer when you meet the requirements.
    I think even if you choose five competitive courses/unis you should still be fine As long as you're confident you can achieve A*AA - which is likely with your prediction.

    i would still apply to at least 2 universities that don't require an A*. LSE, UCL and warwick are all seriously competitive for economics
