Same i already have an offer too, and I agree for anyone who knew anything about game theory it was very dumbed down. However, I though the fact they actually played a game was good!

Yeah, which course are you applying for? The only thing that worries me about the Political Economy course is the apparent lack of maths!

When we get our 20-30 credits a year from other departments I will probably pick a maths module in calculus etc as I want to take an economics masters degree.

Yeah, I received a buddy email today but no offer. Possibly a pre-cursor? I applied exactly a month ago so might be waiting a while. (I'm a Scottish Applicant)

Hi everyone! I'm an American applicant and I have an unconditional for politics! I will probably go after I see how my US ones turn out. I also applied Oxford his/pol and got rejected post interview. Can't wait to meet you all!

Also I have a question about british system. I notice people going to KCL and other schools like it with A*s and A's at A level, aren't these the same type of grades people use to go to Oxbridge and LSE? How do they distinguish applicants to 1st and 2nd tier schools if they're getting the same grades at A level? I just ask this because idk the UK system too well and some peoples' stats like the OP seem the same as people at slightly better schools and I'm wondering why that is.

But anyways, love King's and London and am beyond excited!
