    Cool, what do you mean by stats super curriculars? I've been self teaching an S3 module and read some books, and learnt to program in R.

    Masterclasses at The Royal Institution, R programming at a summer school etc. Looking at my PS again, I think it's more even on maths and stats. I am planning on self teaching S2 and also S3 this year if I have time. What books have you read?

    Yeah I'm applying predicted a*aa, not great I know but I'm going to do Step as well and improve my m2 so I can get the A* that I want in further maths as well as maths.

    Apparently morse is a really really hard and intense degree so I want to make sure I ace A Levels.

    You could have a chance but you need to do STEP. Is A*AB your predicted grades or your achieved grades?

    Those are my achieved grades. I made show my admissions tutor mentions my extenuating circumstances in my reference. Do you believe i will have a greater chance with accountancy and finance. My personal statement is heavily based on maths,stats,econ and finance. I have gained relevant work experience and insight days already, and have some in place for the coming year.

    Thankyou for the quick reply.

    Morse is quite different from accounting and finance so figure out first whether you would prefer to study accounting or MORSE. If you have extenuating circumstances then Warwick might give you an offer. They don't care about work experience though.

    My interst lie mostly in maths and finance. So i believe accounting and finance is the better choice. As for the work experience, i think they would prefer if i did something productive during my gap year.

    Oh ok, I forgot that you were doing a gap year. Then yes, they would prefer you to be doing something like work experience, accounting doesn't involve any maths though apart from adding, subtracting, multiplying, division, exponents- basically GCSE maths. MORSE contains much more advanced university level mathematics.

    Thanks for the advice, it's been very helpful.if you could please help me with one last thing. My personal statement talks about maths finance and econ. There isn't anything about accountancy. Do you think i should include this?
    Thanks.

    If you want to apply to accounti and finance, I would probably remove the maths part and add something about accountancy. Maybe include what books you've read

    Ideally i would want to do a maths and finance course. So stats and finace comes the closest followed by accounting and fimance. The other 3 unis do not offer stats and finance so i chose accounting and finance.

    My ps is heavily based in maths,stats,econ and finance. So there shouldnt be an issue i dont think.
