    I have an offer from UCL, however hasn't shown on UCAS yet as I need to attend the open day first, and so I can see what grades are required. I am doing AS further maths, and as far as I know that won't be included in the offer- can anyone who is in the same situation but has received their offer on UCAS please confirm? Thanks

    Further maths won't be included in your offer. I'm also doing AS FM this year but the offer is A*AA with A* in maths and A in economics

    Does anyone here know of anyone who's ever received an offer for economics from Oxbridge or LSE, without having studied both further maths and economics at A Level? I'm thinking of reapplying after a gap year but whichuni stats say that of all the successful Cambridge applicants last year, 93% did A Level economics and 62% did FM so I dunno if it's worth the risk, since I study neither of them.

    Economics a level isn't difficult so you'd catch up quickly. Further maths is useful though. Without either id say you were unlikely to be picked, but you never know. Why don't you teach yourself further maths, or AS further maths at least and then ask your school to enter you to sit it next year? Would look very good on an application

    Out of those unis, reckon Oxford would be most likely as its Econ + management rather than straight econ

    Yeah I'm planning on reading over the economics syllabus to catch up with other people who have studied it. Also LSE did email me to say that if I can do the full A Level in Further Maths in my gap year then it would make me a strong candidate, but since I have an offer from UCL I don't think its worth taking a whole year out just for LSE, which is marginally better. Oxbridge on the other hand is obviously a completely different story. The only thing putting me off reapplying to Oxford is the fact that only 8% of applicants get offers, so I dont want to end up taking a gap year just to end up wasting it. Bare decisions fam:/

    LSE and Oxford are of similar competitiveness in their own terms, as they have different selection processes, the E&M applicant to offer ratios are ridiculously inflated by uncompetitive international applicants who perceive E&M to be "Oxford's business course". I know quite a few people who have gotten into E&M but have been rejected from LSE L101, and vice versa. So don't let the statistics put you off.
