Why UCL?
Course: French with Italian (maybe, I’m not 100% sure at this point but that’s what I’m thinking atm)
A Levels: French, history and economics. I did them in June (I’m taking a gap year) and I’m hoping for AAA/AAB but I have no idea if I’m going to get that
GCSE grades: 2 A*s, 5As and 4Bs (hoping this is good enough, is it?)
Why UCL? Amazing languages centre, ideal location, beautiful campus and always wanted to live in London

GCSE grades: 7A*s, (inc. 3 9s) 3As and a B

Think I've put down msc on my ucas form and I do intend on staying on 4 years wherever I go grades permitting. It doesn't really matter since I can switch between the two.

Anyone know how quickly UCL looks at applications? I’m planning to submit mine in October and I’m wondering when I might expect to hear back.
