Anyone else applying for joint honours Hi/Pol for 2018? What are you predicted and where do you think you'll apply?

I'm predicted A*AA but I think that's a bit optimistic. So I'm applying definitely to Nottingham and Warwick, maybe Sheffield and York, and LSE if I'm feeling ambitious!

Edit: going for Nottingham, Warwick, Edinburgh, Sheffield and Glasgow.

My predicted are A*A*A and looking to apply for Oxford, Warwick, Nottingham, Birmingham and one other for History and Politics
My only worry with H&P is that the acceptance rate, especially at Oxford, is significantly lower at 14% than single honours History which is at 25% so is it worth it applying to single honours history at oxford if there's a greater chance of acceptance.

I visited both Birmingham and Warwick and I got a much more positive response from Birmingham! The people were nicer and the campus is amazing. Plus, if you are more of a city person Birmingham is definitely the right choice for you, because Warwick is quite isolated. But I think that Warwick has a higher ranking than B'ham does. I will definitely apply to Birmingham for history and politics.

I applied to
Oxford History&Politics
Edinburgh History&Politics
LSE International Relations and History
KCL History & IR

I'm a little bit worried that I mainly talked about history and politics in my personal statement. Does anyone know if this will hinder my chances at an offer for IR courses? Should I change my choices and apply for Government/Politics & History at King's & LSE instead?

thanks

I'd be concerned about LSE, they are the most personal statement heavy university there is. I think King's will be absolutely fine.

My predicted grades are A*AA and I applied in early October for History and Politics at Nottingham, Birmingham, UEA, Warwick and Southampton. I have already had offers from Birmingham, UEA and Southampton. I was just wondering if Nottingham take a bit longer with History and Politics, because I have quite a few friends who have applied later than me (for different courses) and have already had offers.
Thanks

Hi, I've also applied for history and politics at Warwick and Nottingham and I haven't had an offer from those two yet either. I haven't seen anyone else get an offer so I wouldn't worry about it :-)

Hi Guys, I have also applied for History and Politics at Nottingham. I have already achieved my grades and I haven't heard anything either. The first person to get an offer for this course at Notts last year on TSR was on the 1/11 so it should be any day now!
