Hey everyone!
I thought I'd try to start a chat of people who are applying to do BA economics (or Bsc I guess!) for 2018 entry
Guess we could start with saying our predicted grades and where we're applying? Also am keen to see if offers are being sent out!!
My predicted grades: A (economics), A (sociology), B (business)
I'm applying too: Manchester, Sussex, Reading Manchester met, UWE Bristol

Hey! I thought it would be useful to have an econ thread where we can talk about uni choices, grades, extra curricular etc

Where have you applied to study?
