    My top choice is:
    Durham-Natural Sciences (joint in maths and physics)https://www.dur.ac.uk/courses/info/?...#coursecontent

    I'm predicted A*AA in Maths, Physics and Further Maths respectively. The listed entry requirement for natural sciences is A*AA. However for the individual degree's in Maths and Physics they want A*A*A and I've decalared my intention to study both these subjects. Also apparently I only stand a 14% chance if the ucas offer calculator is anything to go by. Am l an uncompetitive applicant?

    UCAS Offer rate calculator is a pile of crap.
    79% of applicants to natsci at Durham get an offer: https://university.which.co.uk/searc...utf8=%E2%9C%93

    They're likely only rejecting applicants who have completely unsuitable grades/subjects or who apply for nat sci with a single honours science PS.

    I checked how likely I am to get into unis with A*BB with Bio,chem and economics. But if i have economics as a subject I don't get any results. If i swap econ out for any other subject i get an offer. I'm not sure how legitimate the thing is.
