1. A - economics (95)
A - math (85)
A - accounting (95)
2. Warwick, LSE (def not getting but still) , UCL uncertain about others
3. Uncertain :/ but maybe econ pure or econ w finance

Physics- A
2. UCL, KCL, Queen mary, Exeter, Manchester

No clue tbh, just applied and got the offer. I’m going Loughborough anyway and they don’t need maths and I knew I was getting in so I didn’t really look much into the others just applied to the rest out of necessity as you have to apply to 5.
@Astokes14a Fair play mate. When did you get your Nottingham offer for pure econ? I have been on hold for ages and they told me it’s because I don’t have maths and they wait till after the Ucas deadline to off econ to people without maths

@Astokes14a seems weird what were your predicted and GCSE find it strange how they put me on hold saying it was for a lack of alevel maths? Might be the timing I applied on the 23rd of November

Hey, does anyone here know if Bristol lowers offers if you choose them as your firm? I got an offer for Econ w study abroad but I'm a bit worried about making the conditions (A*AA) but I really want to study there.
I have an offer to study economics at Sheffield and Southampton. I can't choose between these two. Any advice ?
