    That's true and I'm not saying there aren't any LSE grads getting picked by JP still most of them are from LSE, I'm just pointing out that some recruiters are seeing LSE as semi target and not target.
    mate LSE is probably as targeted as you can get.

    Target unis are Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, ICL, UCL, and Warwick. Any degree at one of these universities would put you in a great position.
    What about not doing maths at a level bu AS and an A in GCSE A* in statistics.
    Still a good position?

    Ok, Year 12 student here, I'm currently studying; Maths, Economics, Computing and Turkish. I'll probably get As and Bs at AS and at least 3 As at A2.
    I've always wanted a front office job at a good IB (Goldman, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley...). However, which University and which course would be the best option for me? I've visited Cass and the "investment and financial risk management seemed appealing. Which course, which uni, what A level grades???
    Which Uni is Cass? Sorry I have just started looking at Uni's

    What course would u say would suit investment banking the most? Wonder if economics is a bit too theoretical.

    The course you want to study and will do well in.

    Fair enough. thanks. Ignoring what interests me the most or how enjoyable my uni life will be, would u say going to a top university is more important or the course u do in terms of getting a job in the sector? I am not sure if I should choose a less competitive course (but less relevant to economics i.e. international development) just for the name of the university.
