I got an offer for Economics, but the conditions are as follows: "This offer is subject to you obtaining grades AAA at A level including Maths plus a pass in A level Further Maths from your June 2009 examinations."

I am in a similar position to you. I did my A2 Maths last year and am doing my A2 Further Maths this year. I have already got an A in the Maths A-level, but it has not yet been certified (I presume that is also the same for you). Since I am only doing 4 subjects at A2-level, it is clear that one of the A grades must include the A I got in Maths last year.

In other words, I'm pretty sure that means you only have to get AAB at A-level (I seriously doubt that they would give anyone an AAAB offer anyway), but if you are still unsure, you can always give them a call.
cool, thanks for the help. does LSE give offers for 4 grades?

They did in my case. I'm not complaining though - an offer is an offer - and because of my A in Maths last year and my marks from AS-level, I effectively need to get CCE from the exams this year in Economics, History and Further Maths respectively to meet the conditions of the offer.

huh, i thought you just said your offer was AAA including the maths you already have and that it would be harsh to give an offer of AAAB.:confused: sorry if im not understanding properly but do i have to get AAB on top of my A in maths that i already have, so at the end of this year i have?AAAB:confused:

Yes, it would be harsh to give an offer of AAAB - I'm pretty sure your offer is AAB only. Just to clarify things, my offer is AAAE, which is the normal conditional offer for Economics applicants who are offering Further Maths.

It could well be. But I'm going to wait until Cambridge get back to me. If I am lucky enough to get an offer from Cambridge, then I would have some serious deliberating to do.

Don't worry, yours will come very soon, I am sure. I'm guessing that the next round of offers will be on Friday 12th.

I will have that guess too if I missed tmr's rejections:p:
as wt I have said before(which seems no one saw it)
will tmr's rejection be for early + later applicants?
if so my chance of being rejected would reduce...since many of the early applicants have received some kind of decisions

Just wondering, if you don't receive a further email from LSE (after the acknowledgment), then do you assume that they'll give you their decision before the 15th?

Common sense and basic logic says, it's more likely this will be the case, although they could, in theory do it after seeing as they haven't told you exactly when to expect the decision, whereas people with these e-mails know they won't get one until after Jan 15th.

and tmr might well be the day of rejection for those who applied before OCT 15th and received no decisions until now

Do you guys think that if we applied before Oxbridge deadline if we are not rejected tomorrow chances are we will be accepted next Friday? Should we get a decision before Christmas as a lot of people are saying?
