    Yeah ditto that being realistic. I'd say 100-130 is pretty normal, depending on where/how lush it is.

    One of my friends is on her 3rd hoody. Nope the normal sized ones didnt fit me. So I got the baby pink in tiny sizes. Hoodies are comfy and means you dont have to make an effort. I like wearing my own clothing though
    it's really weird cos with exception to the med school hoody they all look gash

    Hmm, suspicious... you may be able lie beautifully but you lack some of the other vital facets of being a current UCL student - for example, going to the uni.

    To attempt to answer the question - I have no idea about GCSEs, my GCSEs were frankly pretty average but then Archaeology probably isn't that oversubscribed. I can tell you however, that I think all the courses you mention require AAA, so your chances are nil with those grades.

    why does everyone have to comment on my username :rolleyes: it was in my head while i created this account because i just needed some advice on unis :shifty:

    i know, i just looked on their website and it says they want AAA :shifty:

    thanks, beautiful.

    Your answers are here:

    http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prosp-students/...s/shs/history/
    http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prosp-students/...ctus/laws/law/

    But to summarise, GCSE requirements are not stringent, but the typical offer for all three 'straight' courses (i.e. nothing like Economics with Geography is AAA. Whilst I don't know if you will get an offer, I suppose the assumption would have to be it's not as likely as if you had AAA, which many will.

    EDIT: Blast, beaten to it. And with all those cracking links too. What a shame.

    Edit was because by the time I posted, the conversation had moved on. SO I added it as an afterthought to the original post. It's good etiquette online to let people know if you have altered your post retrospectively, so that if somebody quotes you, it's visible what changes were made.

    Second year at UCL, but I also gapped. In fact, I just turned 21. :cool:

    Go me.

    P.S. - I only managed AABB, and after lots of soul searching, decided to try and get into UCL again by doing another A-level in a gap year. Best decision I ever made. I think what has to motivate you is finding the right course, and having the willpower to make it happen. But yeah, even getting AAB does not have to be the end of the road. I'm proof!
