UCAS Enquiry

Fri Sep 19, 08

Dear Sir or Madam
I am a year 13 student and currently finalising my personal statement for the UCAS application process. I am considering studying History and Politics but would like to apply for Law and Anthropology at LSE as well. I have been informed that I can only submit one personal statement via UCAS and wanted to know if I could post a personal statement for Law and Anthropology directly to LSE separately for their consideration. Just that I am predicted ABB for now and History and Politics at LSE is asking for AAB whereas Law and Anthropology is looking for ABB.

A level subject choices and University

Sun Sep 14, 08

Hi etutor!

Thank you for replying on my last message (or question) (heres the link:

I am still an overseas student but will be a home student after 18 months. I followed your advice to me sir/madam and took A-level Maths, History, Economics (through Distance Learning), Psychology and AS Further Maths. I took Psychology because my dad told me it is important in a business-related careers(i.e. man handling, people's choices etc.). However, I found out that Psychology is in the List B on the Cambridge University's Acceptable A-level combination , meaning that this subject is 'limited suitability'. So my question is, can I still be accepted if I will apply to top universities with A-level Psychology (but I might not do this in A2)?

Also, about the AEAs, is it true that the government/education authority will abolish it?

Moreover, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to This is because you helped me to surpassed my GCSE predicted grades especially in English. I got 3 A* and 6 A. I wasn't expecting this result for the fact that I was predicted with 3 A* 2 A 2 C 2 D (english and literature). In connection to this, do I stand a chance of getting in at top universities like oxbridge, LSE? with a 3 A* and 6 A GCSE grades? I did GCSE for a year and English is my second language.

Thank you very much!
