I spoke to an admissions officer today at the open day and they said that everything is taken into account for ppe including ps and gcses, they also said if you’re exceeding the entry requirements you have a good chance of getting an offer, so I think you’ll be fine. They said they’ve now started the process of giving offers it just takes longer because of them having to look over the applications in more detail in comparison to other courses - they said you would probably hear from them in a month if you’re someone they’re giving an early offer to

Do they require TSA or just predicted grades?

i think they are giving them out to only internationals right now since all the offers i have seen are from students abroad. Tbh it seems like most candidates will have 2 or 3A*s and similar gcse profiles, so it should all be down to the personal statement in the end

Hey there, International Student here. I think I got my Warwick offer around a week and a bit ago. I had A*A*A*A* as my predicted for Maths, Econ, History and English Lang. I'm not quite sure why it's internationals that've got their offers first. As far as some of you guys saying that the 3 A levels may harm your application, Warwick's website says they only consider 3 in the first place (perhaps they encourage more than 3 like any strong university) so it shouldn't be a great deterrent. I'm waiting on UCL, LSE and Oxford, the latter 2 of which I'm not as sure about but will still toss my hat in the ring. Feel like unis want more international students to get the 3x fees out of us, which while it is understandable may frustrate home students. That said, I've full confidence that all of you will do great with your unis, and only wish you the best. If anybody has updates on the other 3 unis i mentioned (i got york but I'm not sure why I applied bcz i got the offer a mere 6 hours after applying and didn't even really consider it as an option for me), do contact me. Cheers!

Also, for all the home students, I would like to know your opinion when weighing options like Warwick vs UCL. As an int student who's focusing on US apps, I would like to go to a uni with a great academic scene while having a great reputations and connections for employability. It may be difficult to weigh these, but I'd really appreciate if any of you guys who prolly have more knowledge on UK unis could help me here if I had to make such a decision. I don't doubt the prestige of LSE and Oxford and thus would be stoked if I got offers from either of them, without a doubt enrolling.
Applied: PPE
Predicted: A*A*A (Maths, Econ, History)
GCSEs: 88888877776,A,M2
Feeling a bit nervous looking at my competition, but hopefully my ps is enough to get me over the line.

Hi, having visited both ucl and Warwick personally I much preferred Warwick. In terms of courses; ppe is clearly a central course for Warwick but a smaller and peripheral one at ucl. In Warwick they have a big centre just for the subject whereas ucl department seemed to be a basement jn the politics department. It felt the uni is more focussed on bigger departments such as econ. Others might disagree of course. Also hold in mind the area: Warwick is a campus uni and London of course a massive vibrant (and pricey) city. So do consider where you would be happier. Hope that helps! Both of course prestigious unis for ppe.

Excellent a levels for ppe and good GCSEs, I’m sure it will work out and if not there are other fab options. Where else have you applied?

What are my chances do you think?

predicted: A*A*A* maths, econ, physics
gcses: 99999998888

Acceptance rates from a freedom of information request seem to be around 70%; Warwick gave around 850 offers for around 1100 applications in 2021.
