    Hi there!

    I have a enquiry about the UCAS personal statement.

    I am in a unique situation because due to my national service (NS) in Singapore, I have two opportunities to apply for UK universities, once in my first year of NS and another in my second.

    As such, for my first try, I was thinking of not applying for any safety schools since I would not accept the safety school offers anyway.

    My options were going to be as such:
    Cambridge // LSE Econs // LSE Math and Econs // UCL Econs // UCL Econs and Stats

    I have gotten 44 points for my IB exams (with a 7 in math) so my grades should be good enough. The issue is the personal statement.

    I have heard that UCL Econs and UCL Econs and Stats are rather similar courses, so writing a personal statement catering to Economics should be sufficient for both courses.

    However, seeing that admission to LSE depends heavily on your personal statement, I have been advised against applying for both Econs and Math and Econs at LSE. I have been told that LSE really wants you to cater your application towards one focused course, and it is stupid to apply for both courses as they are not that similar. As such, my questions are:

    1) Are LSE Econs and LSE Math and Econs really so different? How difficult is it to write a personal statement that caters to both?

    2) Is it true that the schools under UOL such as UCL, LSE are able to see your applications to their different schools? Does that disadvantage me?

    3) Is it unwise to apply two courses at the same university like I have? Will the department receive the two applications independently or together?

    4) Is it possible that they could reject me from both just because I have applied for both two courses at the same university? Or will that not be a problem and could I very well receive two offers form the same university?

    5) After doing my research, the closest course to LSE Econs that I could find within LSE was LSE Math and Econs. Is there any closer degree to Econs within LSE that I missed out on?

    Thanks so much!

    Sort of. My gran and my sister are coming to London with me and my sister wants to see Bankside. They are mainly coming so we can we meet up with my Uncle who lives and works in London. The Welcome is about the only time we will be with our guests.

    Hi ! I got an offer for Philosophy and Economics, and I believe it is a "Standart" course for the english requirements.
    On their website, for the TOEFL iBT test, LSE says that a student must have 107 overall with 22 points in each section. Yet, in the offer guide for undergraduates 2015 they sent to all of us, they want 25 points in each section.

    Which one is the "true" one?

    Thanks

    Hmm... Probably what's in the offer guide then.

    You should ask them to ensure that there hasn't been any mistake!
