Hi
I want to apply for a Maths degree at KCL for 2010.

Do I stand a good chance of getting in? My A-levels are: Economics, Maths, Further Maths, English Literature, Law.

I also have work experience in a solicitors, and I'm looking for maybe an accountants this month. In addition I am going to do an Economics case study in the summer and/or Maths at Manchester scheme!

The only let down I can think of is my GCSES which were 5Bs 3Cs, but I really want to study Maths at KCL!

So, do I stand a chance?

however? how does that make sense?

and they don't care about work experience. but if you get 3 A's including maths and further you should get an offer easy.

If you got a B for Maths GCSE, how can you expect to get an A for Maths?

Stop being such a pessimist. I got a B in GCSE Maths then went on to get A grades in Maths and Further Maths.

Rarity?

IMO, unless the OP had some circumstances it'll be extremely optimistic to say he/she will get A's in Maths/Further Maths after a B in GCSE Maths.

Sorry that came across quite badly. It's just that I hate when people are told they can't do things when they can. I knew several other people who didn't gain spectacular GCSEs but went on to do well in A-Level maths. If you learn the material (and ask people if you don't understand things), do practice questions and past exam papers then you stand an excellent chance of getting A grades in A-Level maths.

Wow, GCSE maths really wasn't a very good predictor of ability for you was it?

Well, tbh the B in my GCSE Maths was because I did squat all in the whole 2 years of GCSE. I learnt GCSE Maths 2 weeks before the exam and came out with a decent B.
So I think I have a chance!
And also, if C1-C4 is an A requirement at KCl, would they accept resits??
