    Really ?!! Did you applied to the dual degree between the two ? I did but i have not heard anything yet which is nerve racking ! Well that is my biggest problem ...If i am accepted to sciences po and for exemple the UCL PPE i may do the PPE but really every week i change my choice so....Are you doing a bac ES , if yes what are your grade like ?
    No I didn't apply to the dual degree UCL/SciencesPo, only to PPE. I am actually living in Japan, so I also applied to SciencesPo/Keio University dual degree (Keio is a univerisity in Japan), but if I get an offer from LSE, I will choose the latter without any hesitation. Yes I am in serie ES, 19 in maths, economics, history and Overall grade around 18 for the 2nd trimester of Terminale. (but I have to say, these are the best grades I have ever achieved. In 1ere, I had more like 16/20 overall grade.)
    I have been reading many posts in this forum and I am suprised by the number of french people! hope to see you next year maybe!

    Wow ! I am pretty sure that you will get an offer from Sciences Po for sure ! And LSE too,they love international student ! The dual degree of sciences Po seems to be quite competitive program,around 16-17 place but i do think you have a strong application ! Yeah it would be great !

    Going to the ESPS assessment day tomorrow and have an interview! Any tips anyone? I'm applying for the dual BA and Im a british school applicant. Really quite nervous about the interview....

    Also a question about the TSA, does the TSA have to be done chronologically, would it be a bad idea to try to do the questions you think will be easier for you or is that a big no-no?
    (there is no essay portion for the ucl one)

    Imagine if on the last day they just rejected us. After all this waiting it would just feel like they ran out of time and decided to just sack us all off. I would be so mad, I've invested so much in this emotionally lol.

    For my Oxford TSA I read that you should try and do it chronologically as it avoids the error of marking the multiple choice answer sheet wrongly. You can still prioritise and try and do one's that you think you'll be able to answer, but the trick is in being able to quickly identify the one's you won't be able to answer and then guessing it and moving on quickly. It's important if you're doing that to set a high benchmark of how difficult you're going to need it to be before you say "nope, not for me" and guess it, else you'll either end up guessing none and run out of time, or guess them all, haha!

    Obviously most people will get rejected if 700 people applied for 100 offers

    I did what Dprince mentioned on the Oxford TSA, I skipped one quite early on and ended up putting the answers to the wrong questions. An absolute nightmare seeing 5 minutes left and realising your error

    But I remember before the test reading that the best thing to do for time is asnwer all the critical thinking ones and then all the problem solving ones or vice versa. This is because your brain isn't having to switch what it's doing so it gets to grips with questions quicker as your in the flow of that kind of question. I'm not really sure how much difference it makes though, I did it pretty much chronologically and was fine for time and did well.

    Anyway good luck, I hope you nail it all and get in

    Same position with the maths - who said you are better of applying for Econ rather than philosophy?

    I believe on the website it says that the minimum requirement for mathematics is higher if you wish to specialize in economics! perhaps im wrong

    Oh I see what you mean - more people will have applied as it is not as high in terms of entrance requirements - I think I might get the A* in maths but it will be close so not sure whether I want to risk it

    I'm actually getting really impatient now haha :/ It would be ridiculous if they're just going to reject us- I'd rather they would just hurry up so I can move on from this waiting game!
