    omgz0rs. talk1ng l1ke th1s 1s s0 muCh f8n. u r sooo kewl.

    On a more serious note, it is a very competitive course and I got rejected, even though I have AAA. Not to scare you or anything, but hopefully you'll make the offer!
    how come you got rejected with AAA - what was the offer?
    edit: Oh wait judging by the other posts in the thread - I guessing you didnt get the offer in the first place, still though, I thought Manchester were quite 'friendly' with giving out offers. Did you resit the year or something?

    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.
    how is the course? and the lectures? i read in the newsletter that econ students complained particularly about the amount of ppl in the tutorials... do you lack support?

    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.
    Do you know if we need to do any preliminary reading this summer before we start??

    that doesnt so sound good.

    What are you planning to do after you graduate?
    Have no idea especially in light of recent times - probably gonna go travelling indefinitely!

    San, the fact that you are an international student might work in your favour since you are ultimately paying a lot more and bringing more money into the uni!

    some of the tutors are post grads, and they are awful at teaching. But the majority are excellent

    ABB is what the prospectus says, but my offer is AAB. I dnt think econ is a requirement, but Maths is essential. are you thinking of applying next year? cos i dnt think Econ at manchester is going to be in clearing... such a competitive course.

    Yea applying next year possibly. Maths is a requirement? Are you on the BSc course though? I think the BA doesn't require it at A Level...

    no worries, basically if you did alevel maths, then yes the advanced maths module is solid, but its not hard to get 40% (which is the pass mark)...the whole year is a bit of a joke to be honest lol, not hard at all. we dossed about the whole year then on the last day we revised an passed. first year doesnt count so we didnt really work. Enjoy first year, but work hard second yr !!!

    Funny would have thought at manchester the first year would have been hard but your right it is only first year the hard work probaly wont start to happen till second year. How are the lectures and enviorment of the economics department and manchester in general ? thanks for all the heads up by the way.
