    Chances are very very slim. I had an offer on BA Econ in 2007, missed it by one grade and was not allowed on the course. I did however luckily manage to change course to BSc Management & IT which worked out much better in terms of what I was interested in. BA Econ is one of the most heavily oversubscribed courses at Manchester and will almost definitely not accept anyone who does not meet the requirements of the offer.

    omg I'm in a very very similar position to you, after ******* up in one of my summer exams I think I will get ABD (need ABB). I doubt they are gonna let me in - just the thought of it makes me depressed - seriously. But I guess I will just have to put up with the fact I'm gonna get rejected. I don't want to drag you down but I dont think they will accept you either.
    Who knows though - Im hopefully wrong
    I noticed they have 'extra' places in Business Studies and Economics and also Economics and Sociology so I'm thinking they might give me an oppurtunity to take up that course but frankly I'm not so keen on it. I want to do L100 not L123ABC what ever the course code is.

    edit: oh and yeah the course is very big , i read on wikipedia that the BAEcon society is the largest coursebased society in Manc uni so god knows how big the actually course is lol. Moreover, this year theres been a lot of stuff goin on in the news about how many people will find it difficult to get offers or get a place if they miss their grades because people are trying to ride out the recession by going to uni.

    Yep. But the fact that you got an offer is a really good sign. Don't panic. Just be positive that you'll make the offer. What's your insurance?

    They might, but I'm in no position to tell you that as I don't know. Sadly, you'll just have to wait and see.

    If you read my signature, you'll see that I'm going to RHUL to read Management.

    hey, my offer is AAB. Fingers Crossed on 20th Aug!

    do u reckon I can get a transfer to BSc Econ after my results?? apparently BSc course is more respected than BA course. but i guess i would be happy with BA, you see, I want to go on to another uni for Masters Econ afterwards- which one do you think would be better for the MA?

    can someone give more info about the econ society? what kind of things do they do in it??

    yea,,,u can easily transfer to Bsc econ..i knw frnd hu studied in Bsc and later transferred to BA econ. I knw that Bsc is good if u want to pursue ir career as an economist...bt the advantage of BA is u have more options as you can studyother social studies course. Bsc is a more quantitative course while BA is more qualitative..u have more mathematics in Bsc,alooot more.

    so yea u can transfer if i want to later but i shud recommend u to stay in BA as you would get many options and choices. Also, if ur in the UK try to go to some really good univeristy fo MA, afterall its a ,master degree course..try London School of Economics or Bristol or UCL..u knw the top ones.

    lets see what happens on 20th!:confused:

    The Macroeconomic and Microeconomic modules on the BA Econ are the same as the ones on the BSc so expect a high levels of mathematics , the only different between the BA and BSc is that BSc has compulsary maths modules while these are made optional in the BA. The BA and BSc are distinguised by flexibility not the mathematics in both. Also the OP can't switch in the BSc unless he has AAB at A level and has done A level Mathematics.

    but the real problem is whether there are spaces available in BSc course. I heard that there are only about 45 places compared to a lot more in BA...

    do you reckon some ppl with a BSc offer would drop out after the results? i have a friend who has BCs offer and is considering an IBM internship so may defer. do you reckon there will be a lot of ppl doing this as well? and would there be lots of ppl like me, who wants to change from BA to BSc??

    I have A2 maths and AS further maths. what do you think my chances of changing are??

    Thanks!

    I cant really say you just have to wait and see , i knw you can switch after the first year into the BSc so dont loose all hopes. With A2 maths and AS further maths you should be fine.

    I start Manchester this September. And I didn't realise they had a BSc and BA. Got ABB, so lost all hope of getting on the BSc. But I'm planning on doing the more mathematical modules anyhow. But if there is a chance of switching later on, I'll try and take it.

    Its best not think about the BA and BSc thing , doing more mathmatical modules is the smart move.
