Recommendations on which unis to apply to for economics

    • Thread Starter

    I'm not sure on which unis I'd be likely to get offers from, I got AABD (English Literature - A, History - A, Maths - B, Physics - D) at AS, and am currently predicted AAB at A2; I'm retaking 2 maths modules to better my chances for an A overall in maths. Right now I'm looking at Warwick and Bath as ambitious unis and Birmingham, Lancaster, Surrey and Southhampton as likely options and Heriot Watt, Oxford Brookes,and UEA as insurance options. How likely am I to get offers from these unis, and any recommendations on other unis. I'm hoping to convince my maths teacher I'm capable of getting an A as I'd messed up on C1; also my English or History teacher for an A* as in History I got close to what he calculated as 100UMS and I just find I'm naturally good at English. Also if I manage an AAA prediction how does this affect my chances? Thanks in advance

    Don't apply to unis which have entry requirements higher than your predicted grades. Warwick and Bath both require A*AA so either try and get your predicted grades bumped up or don't apply to them
