    What are you talking about, neither of them comes close to Harvard, MIT, Princeton, Stanford, Chicago etc.
    Undergrad is on par if not better at Oxbridge/LSE (in terms of teaching), but postgrad (research) US are way ahead.

    LSE has sent me this.

    I write with reference to your application to the School for entry in October 2015.
    We require your predicted grades for each of the subjects you are taking in your AS level grades examinations.
    Can I kindly request that you ensure that your referee provides us with this information no later than 23/Dec/2014.

    Just got this. What does it mean? Have they not received my predicted grades? I am applying for economics

    That's strange, why would they ask for predicted AS grades, you should have already achieved AS grades, unless you are resitting, in which if you are you need to get your referee to state what you are predicted in that resit maybe? I'm not sure tbh but that's my interpretation.

    Thank you. I can't figure out either. That's too strange. Maybe because I was not predicted A* in economics, and they want to know whether that's changed now?

    I don't think they question predicted grades, that is if you are referring to A2 predictions. As I am predicted an A in economics even though I know I can get an A* as I got 93% UMS at AS, which is why I'm glad they send out questionnaires asking for UMS Either way I'd suggest asking your head of year/ sixth form to see if he/she can make sense of it.

    Thank you for your advice. I'd rather they send me the questionnaires! I am really worried about it now. I will definitely ask my six form adviser.

    Me!!! It should just be an overview of our course structure and a campus tour. Don't worry too much.

    I was thinking smart casual but I doubt they will be fussed
    As long as there isn't an interview i'm looking forward to it as I've done no prep
