    I just got an offer for the course.

    A*A*A in Econ, Psychology and History at A-level, AAA in the three at AS in addition to an A in English Lit, and AABBBBCCD at IGCSE (including a C in Maths, though I did have extenuating circumstances). So I don't think it's too detrimental not to have Maths at AS/A-level. Kind of surprised to get the offer though-- a couple of weeks ago LSE rejected me for Economic History due to my IGCSE scores and a concern over my "numeracy and literacy".

    My PS was mostly Econ/History focused, though I did mention extracurriculars which were related to politics and mentioned my interest in Yugoslav history in the statement. Good luck to all of you, seems like an awesome course.
    Hi! Well done on the offer!! When did you send your application?

    Hi. I've applied to this course as well. I currently take History, Economics and Geography (A2) and took History, Economics, Geography and English at AS.

    I've also applied to Warwick, KCL, UCL and Bristol for straight History.

    Best of luck to everyone though!

    Hey guys!
    I just applied for BA History, Politics and Economics. I wanted to know who else has or will apply for this course, and what do you expect? What subjects are you taking?

    Good luck everyone!

    Also I contacted the admissions person and they said that Economics can substitute as Maths so it should be fine. I'm sure we'll hear back soon hopefully!

    Hi! I'm applying too! I'm taking HL History, Economics and English Lit and SL Maths, Chemistry and Italian Lang and Lit (I'm Italian) at IB.
    I've got a very high predicted grade but the thing that worries me the most is the fact that they say that you should "preferably have maths HL" I hope it isn't too much of a disadvantage that I don't have it...
    How about you? what other unis are you applying to?

    Has anyone had any offers recently? Still waiting, but I feel like they may be waiting for Oxbridge offers to be sent out.

    I have just noticed that the personal statement should
    "provide evidence of your interest in history, politics and economics, in the context of Russia, the former Soviet Union and central and Eastern Europe"

    I have sent my application 2 months ago and have not yet heard anything.
    If I didn't write anything about Eastern Europe history, is there no way for me to get an offer??

    This was my first choice.... I am so worried.

    I think that was just a recommendation of an ideal personal statement. I think many of us, due to the interdisciplinary nature of the course, have applied to other types of courses at other unis (I have at least). So even though the personal statement isnt completely on this or doesnt mention EE and Russia I think it should be fine. It's definitely not a complete no only because of this!
