I've noticed that Warwick has already started giving out offers for BSc Economics; on what basis do they decide who to give offers out to first?

I am starting to get concerned too. I am predicted 3 A*s and I got 2 9s 4 8s 2 7s 2 6s and a B in Additional Maths. I am panicking slightly I cannot lie. I am starting to think I will not get into Warwick as I would have heard something by now.

What were your GCSEs? I am trying to tell whether or not they are determining it via GCSEs or more via predicted grades and PS. I do not like it how they give offers separately and not all on one day. I have applied for EPAIS and my friend has applied for Economics BSc and he got predicted all A*s (Maths, Further maths, Physics, Chemistry) and he got all 9s in his GCSEs his PS was excellent too. We both got to a private school however and I am wondering if that has something to do with it and they are weighting grades.

We can't know their thought process - they have until next year to give out offers, so you still have every chance to get in unless they explicitly reject you, which they clearly have not. No need to worry yet, it's still early in the process!

I applied for EPAIS at Warwick, Politics and Economics at LSE, Political Economy at Birmingham (Got an offer) and HSPS at Cambridge. I do not take FM I did an EPQ and got an A* in that though I did that last year.

you should panic applicants of your calibre should have gotten offers by now
Given you're predicted 4A*s and have applied to Warwick, have you received an offer?

Oh I completely get it, I'm waiting on all my options still too Just got to wait it out, the speed of offer really means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

No I have received an offer from Birmingham for Political Economy with Year Abroad and that is it so far. I am certain I will not get in and I am looking at other options as a back up plan.

No he has not. That is what is concerning me. I think something is wrong. His personal statement was good.
