    I applied for Social Policy and got an email a while back saying they'd get back to me in two weeks with further information - not heard anything since. Anyone got similar experience?

    I'm not 100% sure. Only gathered it exists from other people on here, I've personally only seen the 12 and 2 week emails.

    AAAB

    B in english lit
    I got an offer last year with ABBB but that was for history which isn't as competitive. A LOT depends on your PS. There were people with 5 A*s at A2 who reapplied but didnt get in last year. A guy in my school had 5A's at AS and they were all in facilitating subjects, he got in Cambridge but not LSE, for economics. So regardless of how good your grades are, if they don't like your PS they'll reject you.

    If LSE have sent you a questionnaire does this mean that they are satisfied with your personal statement? Or is this just a generic procedure for all economics courses

    I believe it has to do with the kind of students LSE is trying to get into the different courses. For economics, they are looking for Maths, FM and Physics/Chemistry/Economics - basically quantitative subjects with a higher percentage of A* and A then qualitative subjects such as History, Psychology, Sociology. LSE states clearly that they treat Management degree as a social science, unlike Management Science which is more mathematical. LSE clearly states in their admissions statement that they prefer applicants with a good spread of subjects.

    You shouldn't think that Management is less academic than Economics. It is just different. Someone with A*A*A* in Maths, FM and Physics may find Management difficult compared to Economics due to the qualitative content. Actually, some apply to change out of Management in fear of the qualitative element. Still, LSE's Management course has more mathematical and economics content than similar degrees in most other universities. So, LSE Management students have to be good in both quantitative and qualitative areas.

    Also, Management and Economics are just as competitive as their applicants to places ratios are both about around 14:1. FYI, most current students have much higher grades than AAB.

I am really worried about my PS because I also applied to e&m at oxford, so I included a little bit about management on my PS (about 400 characters). Now I regret about it. when does lse normally gives out their offer?

    I don't actually. I'm doing the IB though and there it's different. Economics is 38 points while management ist 37. Both want 766 at HL but economics requires HL math, while management also accepts a 7 at SL. So I'm not sure why there are these differences, but they aren't very big.

    Congrats for your offer! May I ask when you applied and what predicted grades you have?

    Thanks, I applied on the 3rd October and am predicted 3A* and 1A in Maths, Further Maths, Econ and History.

    What about you?
