    Why not wait on Warwick and insure them?
    My insurance will either be Warwick or Bristol, but I was leaning towards Bristol due to the lower offer and seeing the standard of people who have been rejected from Warwick is worrying..

    I made an enquiry about my offer from LSE to the UG admissions team as my offer quotes an a in AS level FM, but since I said on my PS that I was self-teaching A2 FM I asked if I would be required to take the exams for the A2 units and they replied with:

    Dear .......
    Thank you for your email.
    I have spoken with the admissions selector with regards to your query and you do not need to take the extra exams in order to meet your entry offer. You do need to ensure that you meet the offer conditions in order to secure your offer and as such you would need to obtain the grades predicted from your school however anything in addition would be for your own benefit and not required by the LSE.

    does this mean I have to achieve my predicted grades? (A*A*A*a
    ) :confused: It might just be the wording but I'm a bit worried...

    I think I got my offer sometime in November. The only grades that were sent in at the time were my predicted grades which were:
    AP Calc: 90
    AP Stats: 92
    AP Lit: (my teacher actually told my uni counsellor instead of me so who knows)
    Math: 95
    Mandarin: 93
    Economics:92

    Hopes this helps. Should I firm Warwick over King's?

    Yep that'd probably be my choice, you're international right? So I'm assuming you haven't seen the campuses/cities and Warwick's is very nice plus it's great for economics

    That's what I thought, it's just that I feel like if I can't find a job within a year then i'll have to go back to Canada and King's is more internationally known.

    Hmm potentially but I think Warwick is known in a lot of places for strong maths and economics departments and I'm pretty sure they have high employment rates after graduation

    Yeah I loved the campus it seemed really friendly and everyone was super helpful, the accommodation also seemed really good with nice kitchens and there's loads of facilities on campus
    I definitely like it

    If I were you I reckon warwick is the better course, but hey, if your international I'd go for the London factor of King's personally. At the end of the day both are top degrees and esp. for an international student London is much better! That said there's no denying Warwick is the better course..
