(edited 6 months ago)
I am the creator of this thread, and here are my answers :smile:

Desired Programme: I would really like to study their BSc in Business & Economics, however, I would love to learn a bit more about their BSc in Retail Management
Programmes Applying for: At this moment in time, I want to apply for both BSc Business & Economics and BSc Retail Management, but this will likely change to just BSc Business & Economics
A-Levels: Edexcel Business Studies, OCR Religious Studies, Edexcel English Language
Predicteds: Being in Year 12, our teachers haven't given us our UCAS predicteds yet apart from saying what we are on track to receive (Outdated) and our target grades; ABD (This is definitely going to change) & AAA. Since receiving those predictions I have been working really hard and am now getting grades of A*AB in my exams. I really hope to get at least A*AB but I hope to get it up to an A*A*B or A*A*A.
Admissions test: I am taking the SAT :smile:
Admissions scores: I took the SAT with very little revision & preparation (I prioritised A-Levels since this was during term-time, and had no extra time which I need for my exams) and got an 1150 - not bad. I am retaking the exam this August with the hopes of scoring at least a 1400.
GCSE results: 8 in English Lang, 8 in English Lit, 8 in Religious Studies, Distinction in Level 2 BTEC Business, 6 in Maths, 6 in Drama, 5 in Foundation French, 5-5 in Foundation Science (should've taken higher for French & Science... I was 43 marks above a 5-5 in science and 23 marks above a 5 in french)
Why SSE?: The reason why I chose SSE is because it's free to attend, located in the area of Sweden that my family is from (Takes no longer than an hour to see family members, and is about 20 minutes away from my closest ones), and has a great ethos.
School type: State
English proficiency: I don't need to take an exam luckily haha
CV/Resume: There's quite a lot for this section but to sum it up, I do a lot of tutoring, I have got work experience in PR where I did one in fashion and one in luxury hospitality, I am really involved with my school community (head boy, committees, charity fundraisers, etc.), tons of social media experience (from managing my local church's socials to reaching over 31,000,000 people monthly on Instagram alone), tons of sporting extra curriculars (specifically skiing, equine sports, and street dance), poster boy for the UK's #1 Kids Debit Card (Campaign visible UK, EU, & USA), being a TA in class, organising tons of events (Some charity, some fundraisers, and some for party purposes), and a lot more which I could talk about. This is probably the strongest part of my application that I have ngl

If you have any advice to strengthen my application, please let me know!! I am really open to books that I can read and little things I can do over time
