    I applied recently to cambridge for an advanced diploma, but a bit nervous as I dont know my chances. I am studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics (BSc) at Royal Holloway, expected to get a first, first year 70% (did quantitative methods I so first year mathematics and econometrics), and second year I averaged 77% with 85% in intermediate macro and 80% in intermediate micro, published author on comparative economics, won three awards for academic excellence, one of them was a scholarship worth £5000 and currently doing an extra cirricular subject in quantitative methods II (intermediate econometrics) - although it is not assessed. Wanted to know if these are good odds?

    Ah ok, good luck. The deadline is the end of this month so will probably start hearing things after that.

    I just graduated from an engineering degree. Not much economics exposure at all, which means I'm struggling to put together a decent personal statement.

    Your credentials look very good for the course. I'd say you have a strong chance of getting an offer
