    Hey I just noticed that the entry requirement for politics is a 40 ib in ucas but on the university's website it's a 43. Which one is the official entry requirement? Do you think the 43 goes for 2019-20 application round? Btw has any of you (EU student) heard back?

    The entry requirement at any uni is not concrete , the uni can drop their offer by a few points if they feel like you're a student that they must have. The Uni site would still be the place to find the most accurate details though , so go with the 43

    Thank you, but for a university like Edinburgh it's unlikely that they drop the requirements due to the strong candidate pool, I applied knowing the 40 requirement and not the 43 oh well we'll see

    Trust me , a strong PS and interview could sway any good university. Here's hoping you get in!

    Edinburgh's entry reqs on the website notes the Typical Offer that's given, not the minimum entry reqs.

    Yeah I know the minimum is 34 but they'll pick thr students that are very close to the requirement. Do you think it's a plus that I have already taken my exams, so my grade is set, in relation to someone who might have a higher predicted but there's the uncertainty factor.

    Are you an EU or Scottish student for fees?

    Edit: just noticed you are EU. They are likely to have higher requirements for EU students because places are capped.

    Yeah I know there's a limited number of positions, it's interesting to see how-if this will change with Brexit, meaning whether 2019-20 eu applicants will be considered as internationals, therefore there might not be any quotas for them but i guess then eu applicants would have to pay as internationals, meh idk

    If they are then EU fees will rise, a lot.

    Personally I don't think there will be a big change for students during the "transition" period (ie. the 2 years or so after Brexit).
