hi

I'm applying to do Maths at uni. The universities I'm thinking of applying for are Cambridge, Imperial, Warwick, UCL, Bath and Birmingham, but I still haven't decided which 5 I'm applying for - I'm waiting to find out what I got in my Further Maths AS. We still havent got our A level predicted grades but I think I'll get predicted:

Maths - A*
Further Maths - A/A*
Biology - A*
Chemistry - A

GCSE grades: eight 9s and two 8s

extra curriculars: violin, piano, LAMDA public speaking, volunteering at the library in the summer, prefect, running a club

Hi my name's Tim

What course are you applying for: Economics
What universities are you thinking of: Cambridge, LSE, Warwick, maybe UCL, maybe St. Andrews, maybe Bath
A level predicted grades: Maths (A*), Economics (A*), History (A*/A), Further Maths (A/B)
GCSE grades: 9999887777A64
Extra/Super curriculars: EPQ, tonnes and tonnes of reading, FT The Economist, no sports rip, UNIQ (if that counts), a few MOOCs, DofE Bronze, Silver and Gold

If anyone else in like history or economics is ambitious enough to aim for A* then feel free to DM me, I've been thinking of starting a resource pool kinda group chat forum thing. In history I'm with AQA but I do Britain, 1951-2007 and Germany, 1871-1990.
