I would say definitely not Manchester lol. One of the other 3. Kings is in London and Bristol isn’t too far if you want to apply and go to interviews for banking jobs

You said you wanted investment banking and the other 3 are solid semi targets. Afaik Manchester is not. There won’t be much in it and if Manchester is ur fav then go there but the others may put you in a slightly better position to break into banking

I’m not into banking but I did apply do econ last year and when you look up econ on tsr everything is about targets and semi targets so I think I have a pretty good idea but not 100%

Targets (definitely)
Oxbridge
LSE
Warwick
UCL
Imperial

Semi targets (definitely)
Durham
Bristol
Nottingham
Bath
Edinburgh
Cass

Semi targets (I think but can’t really remember)
KCL
St Andrews
Exeter
Maybe a few more like Loughborough

Is this to apply in 2021?

Banks go there to speak to students so it’s much easier to get ur foot in the door to interviews for stuff like spring weeks, internships and jobs. Once you’re in the interview tho, you need to prove why you’re good so it only matters to give you a better chance at being seen

I have no idea. Try to get predicted A*AA with an A* in maths (idk if you do FM) and most places will make you an offer

why do you say KCL is a semi-target (one that you can't remember) it's in London which is the financial hub. wouldn't it be more advantageous to go there instead of say Bristol, Manchester, Edinburgh.

Idk it’s not a target tho. Location isn’t that important, it’s just easier to get to interviews

Idk I’m only one year above you. Get that maths up to an A* if you can. Tbh I don’t think you’ll get an offer from Warwick (for econ. Could probably get into like accounting and finance if you really wanna be at a target uni) but there’s no harm in trying. The ones I listed as semi targets will all probably let you in. I’m going to Bristol in 2 weeks having got AAA in maths, econ and accounting so I think places like that are what you should aim for unless you get that maths prediction up

I'd say

Kings or Manchester depends on if you prefer London or Manchester, they're close imo
