Mention no more than 3 books from this list or your own list ideally!!! πŸ˜€

Preparing for a Land Economy degree | Department of Land Economy (cam.ac.uk)

There are 8 other applicants who will be 'fighting' for the same place as you!!! ☹️ So you really must produce a 'stellar' UCAS Personal Statement.

Furthermore, the MyCambridge Application Personal Statement will enable you to show your true passion and enthusiasm to your prospective college and admissions tutors who will be interviewing you, so make a good effort to complete it successfully.

Lastly, almost 9 in 10 applicants took A-Level Maths and A-Level Economics, so a quantitative science like A-Level Chemistry will be good too. You also need to remember 2 in 3 applicants had achieved A star, A star and A grades. ☹️

Thank You So Much! Just one quick question do you think I will be at a disadvantage not doing geography a-level. Also do you think its worth doing an as level in further maths as a sort of extra qualification.

A-Level Geography is not a requirement. Almost all applicants had A-Level Maths and A-Level Economics. πŸ™‚

AS-Level in Further Maths will be welcomed, as there are so many applicants.

Read some of the content recommended in the Economics, Geography and Law sections!!! πŸ˜‰

Hi there!
I am applying for 2025 entry too as a gap year student (post alevels)
I take currently Maths, Further Maths, Econ and Chemistry and will be sitting my a -levels this year
If I where to achieve 3A*'s and A realistically, would this be enough as a competitive post alevel candidate as I know you need to achieve higher grades
all advice would be appreciated

Yes, as long as you have A stars in Maths and Economics. πŸ˜‰ But it will also depend a lot on the interviews.
