Yup. I'd have probably done a minor in economics if I could.
Not really sure. From what I've heard you pick classes you're interested in and then choose a major and a minor to do as your degree.
Haha yeah some of them have terrible websites.
I do Physics.
My econ teacher told us that even at uni level they start teaching from a GCSE level because it's not that common a subject choice at GCSE/A-level, so yeah they don't require it.
I'd say Econ is a better degree because it's more broad and leads to more options, accounting pigeon holes you a bit into that career path a bit more, but it depends on what you wanna do. Both are good in the end.
Yeah, balance is key.
Don't really have a clue, but they accept any equivalent foreign grades so I suppose if your SAT equalled their requirement they'd take it, should concentrate on your actual studies though. Do American ones not just accept you with A-levels?
A BSc is more Maths based. It's a stronger degree IMO if you can handle the Maths.
It's not impossible, but they do start taking them into account for the more competitive courses. The grades for Oxford are just the bare minimum for what they want, Oxford and Cambridge pretty much have a totally different recruitment process to everyone else and take you more on whether they think you'll be a good student or not . Extra curricular stuff usually helps show them that you're genuinely interested in whatever you're doing and that you have a life outside of studying. I had pretty much none except for having worked and my app was fine. They're supposed to take background into account as well, like private schools usually push their students onto after school stuff, whereas it's less likely state school students will have them. Oxbridge is pretty elitist though.
If you got those grades though you'd no doubt get into a top uni though, so don't worry too much about it
Same as me except Chemistry, nice choices Can always ask if you need help with any of em and I'll see if I can help
Internship definitely worth doing. What subjects you studying?
Sucks about having to do national service. Good to think ahead though.
No idea about American ones mate.
You doing A-levels atm? What are your predicted grades like? Definitely get your head down and do your best anyway pal. I mucked about my first year and got shite grades, almost had to put uni off for a year but managed to up my grades a bit in January and applied late in March - pretty lucky to get into where I did eventually. You don't wanna end up somewhere worse because you didn't try hard enough.
Ouch, my eyes.
