    I've applied for straight History too... What are your predicted A2's? I'm not feeling hopeful either, my GCSE's are really not up to LSE standard, plus I resat year 12 :L

    A*A*A. My GCSEs are good, thankfully, but my AS Levels are only AABB and I don't think my personal statement was great. Don't worry, you'll have loads of other people in the same situation as you if you get rejected. What wider reading themes/extra curricular stuff did you talk about on your PS?

    Congratulations.

    What were your GCSEs and UMS if you don't mind me asking? Also when did you send your UCAS?

    Ahh, they're good predicted grades. I'm predicted A*AA, AS: AAAE. I spoke about a range of things. Henry VIII, Mao's china, French Revolution. I also spoke about my work experience as a local History researcher for Kirkstall Abbey museum. EC's include chairing the debating society at school, senior prefect, history society outside of school, head of student council, amended school curriculum, writing for a newspaper, rock climbing. Also spoke about 4 different books and Lucy Worsley's BBC4 History programmes. I hope all that stuff in my P.S is good enough for LSE!

    What did you talk about?

    12A*s at GCSE and 94% average UMS. UCAS was sent off on the 8th October. Have you also applied to LSE? (Good luck if you have!)

    Yeah. My academics are roughly the same as yours, so fingers crossed.

    Hi guys,

    basically, I have submitted my application with my current IELTS results (which isn't great)

    Listening: 8.5
    Reading: 7.5
    Speaking: 7.0
    Writing: 6.5
    Overall: 7.5

    The minimum requirement is 7.0 in each section. Can I get rejected because of my poor IELTS results?
    Or can they just tell me to resit it?

    I got my country's qualification, which is equivalent to 5 A* and 9 A's
    AS level: AABB
    A-level predictions A*AAA

    I am applying to Management, where the min. requirement is AAB.

    congratulations on the offer and well done for those impressive results, I just hope now that LSE give me a god damn offer which gives me less pressure when I go to my Cambridge interview.

    They might reject you on other grounds but not because of the IELTS. They will just tell you to retake the the IELTS in your offer letter in case they decide to make you an offer. But they wont let you in if you don't satisfy the language requirements so take it seriously.

    5 weeks ended yesterday, no reply but other people got offers on the last day of their 5 week email for Management.

    Anyone know what that means? I got a Fee status questionnaire earlier, would that have delayed my decision?

    Well. Why on earth are you worrying? You've done way more than me..or anyone else I can possibly think of. The only problem with your PS may be the fact that talking about 4 different books (and a TV programme and those zillion other things) means you might not have been able to go into enough detail about them. But I don't know. Probably doesn't matter.

    I briefly mentioned Andrew Marr's 'modern Britain' book and then talked in depth about Paul Preston's 'The Spanish Holocaust' and the effect of the spanish civil war on modern Spain today. ECs: poetry, blogging (I mentioned I've recieved 100,000 views-not sure that matters though), volunteering at Oxfam, CCF, volunteering at outdoor history education centre (I've been there twice ), and EPQ on Apollo conspiracy theories.

    Haha, I can't help but worry tbh. I didn't really get any proper help with my P.S, so I just kind of guessed as to what LSE would be wanting in a P.S.

    You're E.C's sound good, and you've chosen some interesting topics to talk about. Good luck with your application!
