    I couldn't see a thread for us so I thought I'd start one off - I know it's quite early, but I can see from the general university applicants thread that quite a few people have sent off their applications already!).

    Options: Sheffield (AAB); Loughborough (ABB); De Montfort (BBB); Leicester (BBB); Lincoln (CCC)
    GCSE grades: 3 As, 5 Bs, 3 Cs
    AS grades: AAA in Creative Writing, Government and Politics, and Sociology
    A2 predicted grades: I haven't been told them, but I'm self-predicting AAA considering how well I did last year
    Why Politics?: It can be really frustrating to study as it changes so much (especially since the 23rd June :laugh:), but I find it fascinating. I'm particularly interested in European politics (especially Scandinavia) - but really, there's not an aspect I find boring!

    Options: LSE (AAA), UCL (A*AA), KCL (AAB), St Andrews (AAA), Edinburgh (ABB)
    GCSE grades: 10 A*s
    AS Grades: AAAA in German, Spanish, Politics and History
    Predicted Grades: A*A*A*
    Why Politics? Likewise I find it really interesting and relevant a subject. I plan to study it with languages which I feel works well as a combination in such a globalised world.

    Options: Exeter (AAA), Bristol (AAA), Lancaster (AAB), QMUL (ABB), Sussex (AAB-ABB)
    GCSES: 8 As 2 Bs
    Didn't take any AS Exams
    Predicted A* A B (History, English Literature & French)
    Had two offers from QMUL & Lancaster (both ABB)

    Why politics? Especially considering Brexit and the political turbulence we are enduring at the minute, Politics is key to having a real understanding of the world and it is something I've always found interesting. I shadowed my local MP and went to Sunday Politics with her. I hope to go to Exeter or Bristol with Lancaster as my probable insurance choice.

    Why politics? One of the most interesting and engaging courses that make you consider every aspect of life from the economic practicalities to the philosophical thoughts. Politics is a degree that evolves around everyone and impacts us socially, politically and economically

    Hello fellow politics fans

    Options: Manchester (ABB); Sheffield (AAB); Leeds (AAB); Cardiff (ABB); Bristol (AAB)
    GCSE grades: 2A*s, 5As, 2Bs
    AS grades: AAB in English Lit, French and RE (I'm still mad)

    Why Politics?: I want to change the world man! Haha I'm only half kidding. I'm really passionate about world issues, particularly international development, and I'm active on my local politics scene. I love the feeling of engaging in a political debate and learning from someone with completely opposite views to you.

    @willpatrick7 I got my Exeter offer last Wednesday. They asked me for AAA.

    @returnmigrant I'm taking a risk by simply not having an insurance choice. I will technically have one on UCAS but it's probably only going to be just for me to decide where I really want to go. I'm doing 4 subjects for my A2 and all my offers should be for 3, meaning I would still be safe if I messed up an exam. Together with my predicted grades, I don't see myself achieving below AAA in 3 subjects this year.

    @lauren_atkins Thanks! I got my Warwick offer last Friday.

    @amukaty Yes I did apply just for pure politics at King's. The only thing I have heard from them was them asking me to complete a fees assessment questionnaire, nothing else.
