    Hello all!

    I'm an international student applying through UCAS to study in the UK this coming September, hoping to study Management in LSE . (other choices include KCL, Oxford(E&M), UCL (Stats&Management) )

    I'm not entirely sure about this - but I believe UK universities places much more emphasis on academics than on ECAs, so I'm in a dilemma as to which teacher to approach to write my referral.

    -Teacher A: Head of Student Leadership in the college, knows me well as I've worked alongside her for several school events, still within the school, however did not teach me personally.
    -Teacher B: Form teacher(civics tutor) of two years, personally taught me Math for two years (as well as Project Work (a compulsory subject in my country for A Levels), however no longer with the school as he is currently working in another public sector, knows me pretty well too.

    Who do you think I should approach to write my referral letter for UCAS? I've already approached Teacher A and she had already agreed to write the letter, but after discussing with my peers I think Teacher B may provide a better referral instead.

    All advice appreciated. Thanks in advance!
