Good luck to all you guys

ahh okay, so is that mainly economic history or economics ?well good luck! for A level i'm doing Maths, History, Biology and physics as well as GS and the epq and all that extra stuff. i had originally wanted to do something sciency but i fell in love with history and i realised that it was the economic history part of our course i loved the best. we looked at the effect of the acquisition of the new world and the influx of gold/silver on Spain's economy. it was pretty cool. but i just think that the economic history part just adds a different perspective to study economics from. I love how economics is a sort of useful application of a blended mixture of History and maths. I also loved reading Tim Harford's books, that gave me a real love of economics but if i'm being completely honest i didn't make my mind up until the beginning of this school year so i'm still not a 100% sure why i chose it.
does that answer your question ?

thanks, yh so is that what you mainly spoke about in your ps?

i'm applying for the straight econ history course as well as econ history with economics as a minor as opposed to your course which has even more economics (economics and economic history). I rate you considering you haven't studied economics at alevel your statement must have been exceptional.

ahh okay fair enough, so are you applying to start in sept 15 ? i applied for deferred entry so that's when i'l start too.
i'm not sure they are massively fussed about economics they just like to see evidence that you are genuinely interested in the subject. like books you've read and stuff like that. i think it also helps is you have what they consider to be strong subjects.
if you want me to send you my ps so you can see what they want then i can

i am applying for entry sept 14, i hope you are right because i think my ps shows that i want to study the course, but i suppose ultimately they will decide whether this is the case or not.

to be honest i cant even see why studying alevel history would be preferred other than developing ones essay writing skills, i don't think the a-level history syllabus talks much about economic history as opposed to polictical/social history, i could be wrong here though.

i personally think the department is keen to see you studying one essay based subject and one science based subject, so that they know you can cope with both the quantitative and qualitative elements of the course.

if you wouldn't mind that would be much appreciated, shall i pm you?

i'm sure you'l be fine, i think what the don't want is people choosing it just because its entry requirements are lower than for pure econ. you are probs right about the subjects they like. i know they are very keen on maths.
yeah no probs at all, pm me and i'l send it over

Well all of those subjects sound great, do whatever you'd find easiest and enjoy most. Your other 3 subjects are really strong so I'm not sure it matters too much. Govt and politics might be useful. I do biology and it's relatively easy there is just a lot to learn. So you might enjoy one of the other subjects where you have to engage your brain a bit more. I don't really know, just do what you think you'd enjoy and do best in!

Choose whichever one you want to - it will make absolutely no difference what your fourth A-level is, as long as you get good A level grades overall. (I'm a current LSE EH student - people have A levels and IBs of all sorts)
