    Hi ! I've been rejected for IR. I wasn't expecting too much but what bother me is that they said that I didn't even met the typical offer, but I'm aiming for a french baccalaureate with a mention Tres bien, which would mean 17/20 average while their typical offer for a French baccalaureate is 16/20 average.
    So, I just don't get it.

    I'm in the same boat. I honestly don't understand how they can reject me.

    I'm dying here. Don't know if I want an email or not today. If one appears in my inbox I'm pretty sure I'll just run around in a state of maniacal panic until I eventually run into something and knock myself out.

    Got rejected and they say I don't have grades which meet their offer.

    My school doesn't disclose predicted grades to students and I honestly don't think I'm that bad... does LSE only use reasons such as 'your grades aren't good enough' or 'your personal statement isn't good enough' for their rejections???

    I think these are their main reasons as they don't interview.
    What they told me:
    Spoiler:
    Show

    This decision is not a reflection on your abilities. On the contrary, we were impressed by your achievements. However, competition for places at LSE is intense, and as a result many well-qualified candidates are unsuccessful in their applications.
    Whilst your personal statement is good, there were stronger personal statements received from other similar applicants for your programme. Applicants are expected to provide convincing reasons for their course choice and evidence of appropriate preparation for their degree studies, as well as demonstrating significant interest in the programme offered at LSE. In your case, the academic department felt that your personal statement was not as sufficiently compelling when compared to the Personal Statements received from other similar applicants.

    Already has Pal, my work ethic is decreasing day by day....even if it's a rejection, I'd prefer to just know, so I can focus on my school work.

    It's totally ridiculous.

    Did your teachers definitely predict you a 17/20? If I were you and for peace of mind, I would email them. Tell them what you just told us and ask for further clarification as to how and in what ways you didn't meet their entry requirements.
    I'm definitely going to investigate, and first ask my referee, because if she predicted something lower as 16/20 it's not going to work either with the others unis I applied to.
    Good luck to all the others applicants who are waiting.

    Can they reconsider if they don't like your subject combination but you say that it was due to the lack of opportunity you had?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I would definitely mention it to them

    Yes, has anyone received offers?

    Okay do you know of anyone succeeding this way? (i.e getting them to reconsider?)


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    No, sorry did they reject you explicitly because of having the wrong subject choice? If so, were the subjects available to you? If no, then definitely tell them this. A big reason as to why lots of top economics courses (excluding Cambridge) don't ask for further maths is because a lot of schools in the UK and abroad don't even offer it, so I think they may make an exception. Of course don't solely rely on me lol, see what your teachers think
