Want to do economics at UCL. Do I stand a chance?Watch
"English Language and Mathematics at grade C or 5. For UK-based students, a grade C or 5 or equivalent in a foreign language (other than Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew or Latin) is required. UCL provides opportunities to meet the foreign language requirement following enrolment, further details at: www.ucl.ac.uk/ug-reqs "
You have nothing lower than a B so that's great. Your predicted grades are enough. All you need to do now to get into UCL is work hard and get that A* in maths and 2 A's in your other subjects.
My GCSE grades were pretty average. I didn’t try for anything to say the least as I wasn’t in the right frame of mind at the time. 3 A*s, 5 A’s and 3 B’s. I’ve decided I’m really interested in doing economics and especially in UCL as I’ve always loved that university. I’m taking maths biology and chemistry for a level and I’m predicted A*AA. Due to my poor results at GCSE I’m fearful. Do I stand a chance?
funnily enough it's not your GCSE which will harm you (they're not bad actually) but your A level choices. you should have done further maths and an essay subject, although i suppose Biology is a semi-essay subject
Economics doesnt require doing further maths, unless she wants to do something like 'Economics and Mathematics". Doing normal maths is just fine. Doing an essay subject would probably help once she is at uni, but essay writing skills are easily picked up imo.
