    Hi guys,

    I received an e-mail saying that I was "strong enough to be considered further ..." just the day after they sent me the email : "We will consider your application within 2 weeks ..."

    Is it a good sign if they consider I am strong enough very quickly ?

    (I sent my application on the 25th of September)

    Applying for Econ and Econ History

    Thanks
    Oh wow! I applied on the 15th of this month and received my receipt of application 2 days later.. Still heard no news yet (Pretty sure it'll be an instant rejection!)
    Good luck on your application!

    If you are doing an access course you'll either be rejected or asked to sit an entrance exam.

    I'm expected 93 distinctions so I'll be pissed if I get outright rejected! Especially as I took extra subjects just so it'd look good for Uni! Not fussed about an exam, they tend to be fairly good for me
    Just annoyed that I've actually heard more from Cambridge than anyone else D:

    I have no idea about submitting the UMS. I did CIE (international examination board) and it does not have modules but it just gives you your grade and percentage achieved.

    I did not put down any percentages but just grades on UCAS since I heard that unis send you an email after they receive the application asking for your UMS percentages... is that right?

    Good job. You got similar grades to me.
    The exam is annoying as it contains a maths section. Hope you are decent at that!

    Then you shouldn't have a problem. It's only basic stuff.

    Hi everyone !!
    I'm french and not bilingual so sorry in advance for the faults I'd make !
    I've applied to 3 courses at the LSE : politics ans philosophy, social policy and sociology, and international relations. I already have submitted my UCAS application ... My questions are : does the LSE is that selective ? Your comments about it are a bit frightening lol, so I'm now wondering if it was a good choice to "bet" on this school three times instead of putting other universities. Now this is too late... Does everyone know if they ask anything else than the UCAS file for the admissions process? When do we know if we are accepted or not ?
    Wish you all the best ! :-)

    Why do you say so? Government looks very very interesting though, and I kind of like having a broad range of options. My application is already away anyway

    He probably said that because with your grades, as long as your ps is good, you're very likely to get an offer ..for well any course and econs is the most competitive/highly regarded one.

    I suggest go for what you really want to do. Congrats on your terrific grades by the way, and good luck.

    It is selective. Some of LSE's courses are the most oversubscribed in the UK (applicants vs places)
