You may want to leave your details here using the following format:
A Levels taken: (+optional: predicted grades)

University A (Course 1)
University B (Course 2)
University C (Course 3)
University D (Course 4)
University E (Course 5)

Cheers!

I'll make the first move:
LSE
Cambridge
UCL
Warwick

I did not take A-levels, as I am an international student. I will send my application by the beginning of October.

Hi! I am a student at the University of Cambridge. I tutor students aiming to get an offer for Geography, the subject I am currently studying. Since there are not a lot of past papers for the geography admissions assessment (GAA), I have made up my own using current degree course material. I currently have 6 samples for section 2. If anyone would like to buy them please private message me.

Hi! Unfortunatley I do not know anyone studying geography at Oxford. However, the GAT and GAA are actually very similar to my knowledge. Maybe you could check out the Cambridge version and see if you feel I may be able to help you anyway. Especially note section two where the data response essays are very similar. Hope this helps.

I've made flashcards on the TSA section if it, ie the type of question and what you should look for. Then I've done quite a few practice essays on the graph stimulus question. Less than a month to go now until the exam! Eek!
