right so the situation is that i need 3 B's but its looking like im only going to get 2 B's and a C. I applied for politics, am i likely to be told to get lost come July/August?
Nobody can tell you. It depends on Queen Mary's situation come results day, so you just have to wait until then I'm afraid. Anybody on here will just be speculating.
i really dont want to have to apply through clearing and go somewhere else.
QM politics department is pretty good so ill be prety happy if in august they give me a place.
i hope they do too. best of luck.
what universities tend to do is see how many "missed offer" places they have then rank you on your extra curriculars. Take the top people for the number of places and reject the rest. So if you have lots of good stuff on your personal statement then you have a much better chance. Most universities also prioritise "missed offer" applicants if you have them as your firm
Yeah, I'm sure they review your application, but they certainly don't 'rank you on your extra curriculars' as you put it. They would look at your application as a whole.
they review things that aren't your grades is what i meant basically she said they took the top however many places they had left and that things like DoE and voluntter work would be strongly in your favour
My offer was BBB (for German and Linguistics) and I got BCC and they still let me. I was applying for a deferred entry and I don't know how oversubscribed they are for Politics, but I wouldn't rule it out just yet.
However, if you know that's what you're predicted now, why not just work harder and try to get those 3 B's?
BBB is the offer, the students who are joint hons politics are more likely to have lower grades. But on the whole most of the students enter with ABC/BBB or equivalent. Concentrate on getting the grades, I'm sure you will.
I don't know if it's the same but for Law at King's they "rank" (as someone on here put it) students according to how closely they missed their offer (i.e: in UMS marks). It is different for King's though in the sense that it is only very rarely that they would have to resort to this, as usually they do not have any places left as enough people meet the offer, and so usually they do not accept anyone who misses their offer, even if only by 1 mark.
Chances are (if) they say no the first day, if you try the next or a few days later you'll be able to get in....as long as its just a grade here or there.
I don't think Politics at QM is the most competitive subject in terms of numbers (may be wrong). But don't right of your chances. Just work hard, just make your days count!
There is space. But they are stringent in terms of requirements. As I posted above, do not think about what happens if you miss them, focus on working hard and getting the grades. You will be fine.
Well they offered you a place even though your predicted grades were bbc so there's something about you that they like, as someone has mentioned above they look at you as a whole (ur interest nd ur passion for the course) nd not just grades. Good luck nd if you get in will c u in lectures (assuming i gt in lol)
ok so my predicted grades were CCC and i took a chance with queen mary (when they were asking for BBC) and i made them my firm.. now tht results day is getting closer and clsoer im kinda thinking tht i wont get the required grades.. so i just wanted to know.. if anybody does.. is queen mary lenient with their science degrees? (as i have applied for molecular bio) xx
