    Economics, Maths and Econ was only my fifth choice as I didn't see myself living in Bristol which I initially applied to but changed as my head of sixth form is convinced that I will get an offer from one of the top 4 I applied to.

    Not a big problem now for me as I already have an offer from LSE econ, but out of curiosity where does it say that on the LSE website?

    Here: https://lfylive.lse.ac.uk/lfy/tc/enq...&searchString=. I think that may be why you haven't heard from M & E.

    Yh I got one today, it says "Results must be from the first certification of your forthcoming qualifications, as indicated on your UCAS application." So I assume so.

    What's this about proof of qualification?

    Has anyone actually been to LSE? I know that it is very prestigious but I have heard some negative things about that place. Is there anyone who has actually been there and liked/disliked it ?

    But on their website it says that:

    "If we require proof of any previous qualifications, this will be stated on your offer letter, e.g., "Please provide certified verification of your 2012 Mathematics A level"."

    I'm part of the LSE Summer school so I go every Saturday. It's a small and compact campus (if that's what you call it) and I'd say that it's great as minimal time is spent getting around. I wouldn't say the area is amazing since there are better but it's in the heart of London with the Holborn Tube station (which gets you pretty much anywhere) just 2 minutes up the road.

    The main road Kingsway has plenty of shops in particular restaurants and cafe's. Buildings are new and look good (the one's I've seen do) and the rooms are relatively big. The library has a very large amount of computers and books although the stairs are a bit of a joke and if you ever visit you'll understand why.

    I've only ever visited on Saturday's so you have to read my opinion in context since it may be absolutely packed on weekdays. Overall I've enjoyed it, was there anything in particular that you wanted to know? Also what were these negative things you've heard?

    They were kind of vague to be honest. My history teacher(who is now doing MA in UCL) told me that the minute I walked there it looked like a business to me. He also said that they are very right-wing and that it is no place for Marxists like us. He said they put so much focus on political history that you dont get a good picture overall.
    The economics teacher said that they are **** and that is why I didnt go there. He said they conduct lecture in theatre halls with 1000 students and the professors never have time. He also said you wont get very good support with your studies in there compared to even less prestigious universities like Royal Holloway(no offence there).
    Bear in mind that this is what they've told me. I am still inclined to go there because i like political History. After all, "all history is the history of political thought".

    I doubt it, LSE was set up by members of the Fabian Soc who are socialists and are associated with the Labour party

    THANK YOU for that. I thought it was set a university to fight Marxism. I've heard they are one of the most political universities in the country which is pretty awesome.

    Which is probably why I got an offer, because I based my p.s. heavily on the political aspect of economics.
