Manchester CS and MathsWatch this thread
I got an offer for this course this year. I think it must be competitive, because the entry requirements are so high. My offer was A*A*A*. I had a personal statement which was mostly full of supercurriculars, as I wrote it to apply to Oxford. My predicted grades were A*A*A*A* so that probably also helped too. And obviously you can get a reduced offer if you are a contextual applicant, although I'm not sure how easy it is to get that.
I'll check if I'm eligible for that. What subjects did you take, out of curiosity, and what other universities did you apply to/get into?
I applied to:
- Oxford - rejected
- Leicester - offer AAB
- Birmingham - offer A*AA
- York - offer AAA
I think they all wanted me to get at least an A in maths.
