    So I was wondering, is anyone out there in a similar boat to me who is applying to UCL for 2018 entry. This year after my A Levels I plan to do an Access course in Science as I did the wrong A Levels for Applied Medical Sciences and do some volunteering and go on a placement. Or maybe you're in your AS year?

    2018 is so far away :moon:

    Anyone out there? I know this thread is early but applications can begin in September and UCAS opens their 2018 entry section in June.

    I'm also applying to UCL for 2018 entry. Does anyone know for courses which have a range of offer grades e.g. Social science (AAA-AAB) how they pick which grade they offer you. Will higher grades get higher offers?

    Usually the following applicants get the lower offer:

    1. (Common) - disadvantaged background (eg. State school, lots of improvement and passion, social housing)

    2. (Rare) - perfect subject combinations eg. Taking CompSci to do CompSci at Uni (not 'neccessary' but the requirements are often lower with it)

    Start revising from the beginning of the year and revise from the books. Look at all obscure questions and never assume "that wont come up". OCR are now picking the smallest details in the syllabus and making them into big questions.

    Oh and dont take any topics for granted. FP1 was my strongest and i was getting 100 ums on all past papers so i didnt do extra book work. Then i got 85 ums my lowest when they caught me out with a peculiar question. So yeh thats my advice and good luck!
