Just thought we could start this off now as a place for students to get to know each other, give advice and build a community to prepare us for the application process!

Useful thread about different Econ degrees: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6984197

Starter Questions:
1. What universities are you applying for?
2. What subjects are you doing currently and what are your predicted grades for them?
3. Are you applying to any other courses?
4. Extracurriculars/ experience/ books etc.

Went really safe with these options icl and I have that fear of rejection so I held back from applying to the likes of Warwick, Cambridge etc. Really hoping for an offer from either UCL or Bath!
