Are my grades good enough?

AS:
A - Maths (C1 98, C2 100, S1 84)
A - Physics (only 74%)
A - Economics (only 79%)

A2:

A - Maths (note, no A*)

Module UMS/100: C1 98, C2 100, S1 84, C3 88, C4 86, M1 86, S2 93, M2 92

Taking Further Maths, Physics, Economics and retaking C3/C4 this year, prdicted 2A* and 2A's. I realise Economics at Nottingham is extremely competitive, I think my personal statement is good, so assuming it is on par with other candidates, will I likely get an offer? I also realise there are many variables, but is it likely?

I have already applied (before 15th Oct).

Hello,

I applied for Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Nottingham and I got an offer in 4ish days with AAB at AS level (A in Econ, A in Politics and B in Maths). Your Maths unit percentages are way better than mine (along with that A in maths hot damn) and we have the same economics grade so I'd say there's a very good chance of getting into Economics if you have a decent personal statement.

What do you mean by "only 79%" by the way, are they raw mark percentages?

Raw mark yeah. It's my fifth choice but my friend already has an offer with lower grades than mine, so I'm pretty confused atm. Maybe it was to do with a fee status assessment or something?

From what I hear Notts usually let in candidates that get AAB so you should be fine.

Even for Economics?

Thanks for clearing that up I've applied to all high risk uni's with Notts being my fifth choice, so I'm glad to hear I will most likely not go into clearing

Yeh I meant more specifically for Economics, You'll get the usual offer of AAA or w/e it is but as long as you get AAB you'll get in.

For four A Levels, the entry requirements for Economics at The University of Nottingham are A*ABB. So, with A*A*AA, I think you're well on your way.

I'm applying this year and have left college and got:
Business A*
Economics A
Maths B

But I'm retaking my maths but i'm kind of hoping Nottingham will give me an unconditional offer.

http://university.which.co.uk/search...ics+nottingham 83% of applicants seem to get offers so particularly with your great grades I'd say you're guaranteed an offer, don't worry!
