    Anyone revieved anything since filling in the UMS survey? For straight Economics in particular too?
    I applied on Monday, but they haven't asked for my UMS yet. It might be because they have all my data in their system already from last year.

    How many days after applying did they ask you for it?

    I applied on October 5th and got an acknowledgement on the 10th
    I got the UMS survey a few hours after the acknowledgement, between that they emailed me saying my application was in the initial assessment

    What are the Bs and Cs in, and 42 is one of the top marks for IB right? I'd say your odds are good

    They will send you an email saying your application is an initial assessment before you get asked for UMS, well that's what happened to me. My acknowledgement and initial assessment email were quite close together but probably because I applied early

    Yes, they want 39 IB points, but I am so worried about my GCSEs! So my A*s are in Mathematics and English Language, the C is in English Literature and the rest are in everything else. However, I am not English and did not know the language before I came here for my GCSEs....my teachers wrote this in the reference and I am now predicted a 7 in English A, however I am not sure if LSE will take it into consideration...

    Your GCSEs shouldn't disadvantage you then, and your IB really makes up for things! So you'll be fine, LSE takes in holistic applications
