    Guys, what about Statistics preparation? Do you all have solid knowledge of STATA software? Would knowledge of STATA also be presumed from the beginning of the course? I did two month training of STATA with a very little practice. What about you?

    I have never worked with STATA, just Eviews, but I think is just a matter of practice and follow the rules .

    Personally, I am much more concerned with not to fail maths at the beginning

    During the course, you won't have many opportunities to learn STATA and EViews. The course is purely theoretical with virtually no practical practices, although you will have 4 hours emprical sessions for learning STATA and eviews after the exams for preparation of the econometric project.

    A NEW: a group of MSc Econ students are now protesting claiming that this year's micro exam is extremely difficult... interesting to see how many people would fail this year...

    Well, after all is a Msc from a top university in the world. If I knew that everybody pass the course with a sensation like they were in a long holiday in London, I would worry about, but I think that level of rigour is expected.

    Ey Lalafell, what about Cam?, do you have news of your app?

    Well, I am also concerned with that exam, but it is math and statistics exam and that is why I think that we should have good knowledge of those softwares. Don't you think so? If no, it will be great, we just need to prepare theoretical part with Pemberton and Wooldridge. I have already ordered these books for the summer.

    You can see past exam in UCL Moodle. For this, you don't need anything from stata or eviews, it's pure theory and mostly probability.
