    Very good predicted grades.



    Both of you are doing IB, what a coincidence...

    I think he's saying that they might be doing a round of IB offers/rejections first, since no one with A Levels has heard back yet (that we know of). He wasn't downtalking IB - a prediction of 45/45 is insane. Only about 120 people worldwide even scored that high last year iirc. It just goes to show the value of the personal statement when applying to LSE.

    Oh sorry, I misunderstood!

    Oh gosh the idea that they're doing IB offers/rejections first is quite scary.

    Yeah, I just meant it was odd how both applicants were IB students. They both had decent predictions as well.
    I didn't mean in the bad way at all. Many offer holders will have done IB. IB offerholders will be way more than you might expect. I am basing this on last year and the fact that LSE takes fairly large amount international applicants compared to other universities.

    I think with LSE there is an element of luck to the application, even more so than Oxbridge since you don't have entrance exams and interviews to differentiate yourself. As long as you've shown that you have the relevant skills and interest in the subject needed for the degree, as well as any outside reading, work experience, and relevant extra curriculars there isn't really much more you can do. Applying to universities as competitive as this is a gamble - it may pay off or it may be a wasted UCAS slot. But you never know until you try so we all just have to wait and hope for the best!

    I don't think that implies that they like IB students more though. A levels (in my experience, so this may be wrong) is less common internationally than IB. And apologies for misunderstanding you!

    It is alright, no worries.
    Yeah, A-Level students will be more than IB students for sure. I just meant that IB offer holders are also common, so it wont be hard to find IB offer holders.

    Hi! I am also an IB Student
    However I don't have a 45/45 prediction (just 41...)
    I got more than a week ago an email from LSE saying my application will be transferred to the Admission Selector for the BSc in Economics and Economic History.

    In my opinion, LSE is making an initial clearing between applicants they like and that will be compared to the rest of the applications being sent, and those they do not want I guess...

    Predicted A*AA in economics,maths,further maths.
    AS Levels - AAAB
    GCSE - A*A*AAAAABB

    They are fairly standard grades, but I am relying heavily on my personal statement which i think is very strong, and on my finacial internships, charity work and passion for the area.

    What about you?

    They won't reject someone just because of GCSE grades, unless maybe if your BBC is in a relevant subject like Maths, which I doubt it is the case for you, so you should be fine.
    I did IGCSE, so I don't know how strong your grades are compared to other GCSE students.

    One thing i will say and this will get you into Acturial, I'm very sure of this. In your PS always link back the academic points to why you want to do actuary,trust me.
