    And yet you posted this in the Warwick forum...

    Please don't crosspost the same question in multiple forums. Once in Economics and PPE university courses would be sufficient

    I don't know what answer you expect especially as you say you have already spoken to each university.

    (It's Warwick.)

    Hi, I have spoken to the universities, however I wanted a students perspective on whether realistically there was a good chance. I say this because all of the Universities I have stated are extremely prestigious and hence I did not want to snooker myself so to speak by getting rejections. I also understand that universities are unable to sway a leading answer incase it comes back on them, however I just wanted a really honest answer. Thank you!

    You have 5 choices - you will likely get at least 3 offers if you are on target to meet their typical requirements.

    Universities don't try to mislead applicants - if they say you are competitive then that's what you are. University admissions teams are a more reliable source of information than even current or applying students...
