not sure about the number of places. But a guy at the openday i went to last week said that if u dont get AAA, there's no point ringing them as there's no way they'll give u a place!!

quite scary?!

I do IB and the guy (pemberton i think) said that i could miss my HL offer and still get in if my overall score was higher than requested. With A-lvl 1 grade out of three is a huge difference. So there is no chance I expect, as the competition for UCL was something rediculous like 18:1

i applied for economics L100 and they were the first one to reject me.
dont know why. if they still dont want this kind of result then wat the hell more were they expecting from me. anyways i dont care abt them now after i have unconditional from UCL. all i m now worried about is LSE.

i know for L100 its definitely 100 places because they say it in the prospectus. but for 20 international places my friend(international applicant) told me that when he was screwed up by UCL he rang them to ask the reason, then they told him there were 20 places for international students.

but still this is word of mouth not official figures.

Im still waiting for an offer/ rejection from UCL I had an interview early in February. Is anyone else in the same waiting position? how long do they normally take to reply???? Does anyone (...other than myself) want to e-mail them an tell them to hurry up, so we can make our decisions!!!

Basicly, I heard things like "if you call them up having been rejected they MAY give you an offer because they have lots of ppl who dont want to go there getting offers".
Ppl can get in with aab results IN THEORY. this can happen because if they give a certain amount of offers (eg. 110 for 100 places) they expect 10 ppl not to make it. But if 20 ppl dont make it, then 10 of those that dont will get it (or thereabouts)
