Hi, I did iGCSEs and got 4 A*s, 4 As and 2 Bs. Is there any point applying to LSE for Geography with Economics with those grades? I am hoping to get 4 As at AS level and then 3 for A level.
Thanks!

Hello, I am taking Maths, Further Maths, Economics and Government & Politics and planning to apply for ECONOMICS in LSE.

Do you think there would be any disadvantages for me to take G & P or would it be fine??

Looks like you have all the ingredients to build a strong application. Go for it! However, make sure you are eligible to apply: ''A*AA (to include A* in Maths) plus a pass in a fourth subject for those with 4 or more A2s or A*AA plus an A grade in Further Maths AS for those offering AS Further Maths only''.

You should read the FAQs under admissions for BSc Economics on the website. That combination of subjects looks like a typical selection taken by successful Econ applicants. Note that it says ''In addition to Maths, the selectors prefer to see subject combinations which indicate that you possess both analytical and writing abilities. Subjects which appear as common post-16 choices are Economics (although not a required subject); Physics; History; Chemistry; English and Government and Politics'' + further maths to a good level. Good luck.

Many thanks

Sorry. I must have misread it as a pure Econ degree! You're right - it is AAA with an A in Mathematics.

As the title states, I'm a current LSE student. The process can be quite long and I found when applying last year that there are numerous questions I needed the answer to which I couldn't find answers for. I have been at LSE for 2 months so far and I'm loving my experience. I hope to answer any queries you people may have... fire away

Do all applicants have the same chance of receiving an offer for a certain subject? For example, if a student took Sociology, Art and Maths at A Level and were wanting to apply for the Social Policy degree, would they have the same chance of receiving an offer as someone who took Government & Politics, Sociology and Psychology?

Hello! I will also be studying at LSE next year. I received an email concerning the programme timeline for next year and I realised that Christmas vacation last for almost 1 month. As I am an international student I plan on visiting my parents that period. Do you know if I have to be in London or if I can leave during the whole Christmas vacation?

You can leave for the vacation. Obviously if you have January exams, you would probably benefit coming back to London a bit earlier to resettle etc.

Hi Persian Ninja (cool name !),

Extra time is permitted only if a student has a disability. Medical proof is needed for this disability and then extra time is given in exams.
