    How long does it take for the initial assessment for your application to finish?

    Three days ago which was a Thursday, they have rejected a batch of students in the initial assessment.
    The initial assessment should take no longer than 2 weeks. Assuming a batch of applicants have received their initial assessment email on 10/10, hopefully LSE will issue the 8 weeks email by tomorrow. Then, the game of elimination begins.

    I got the confirmation email on the 11th but haven't had anything since... Does this mean they haven't properly started looking at my application?

    If it helps I actually received my 8 weeks email an hour or so ago! (I've applied for International History) so they should be coming out soon. I was an early applicant, though.

    I'd love to study International Relations, but think I screwed up some of my AS exams (MATHS!!)
    I screwed up mine but if it is not cashed it they won't know?

    Yes. They said that my application has been released to the admissions selector for History and I'm now being considered in competition with other applicants.

    Basically, the LSE admissions assessment is a two-stage process. After your application has been received you'll get an email detailing this. In the first stage your application is put through checks, e.g. to see if your predicted grades stand up to the typical offer, what your personal statement is like, etc. Then you'll get a further email if you progress to the second stage, which is when they compare you competitively to other applicants. After around eight weeks or more you either get declined or given an offer.
    I think it's possible that you could get declined after the initial assessment - but only if your profile really doesn't match what they're looking for.

    Hope this helped somebody

    I'm not very sure but the email should be issued today as they carry out the initial assessment fortnightly for every subsequent batch. Since you applied on 12/12, you should be classified as the second batch. Tell me if u receive an email today!
