    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!

    Hola!

    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 offers from QMUL, Lancaster, Sussex and Bristol (all 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.

    FINALLY! Everyone I've find is either doing or the other or doing PPE. Where are you applying and what subjects do you do now?

    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
