    What are your AS/A2 grades may I ask? Also did you talk about Econ history much in your personal statement, how much did you dedicate to it?
    I'm applying post A level so my A2 grades are A*A*AA,I wrote a little about economic history but predominately my personal statement was more leaned towards pure economics because all of my other choices are pure econ. How about you? These 2/8 week notifications are agonising! Id rather just know the outcome at the end!

    Hi everyone,

    I will fly to London to vist the applicants open day at KCL on 2nd December, if I get shortlisted for an Oxford interview I will have to be there by 6 December. This leaves me with a few days in between to explore London. Does anyone know whether it is possible to visit LSE or UCL during those days. I have never been to those universities so it would be nice to have a look around.
    Thanks in advance!
    Hi there

    You will have more than enough time- all 3 universities are within (approximately) a 30 minute walk from each other.

    If you're not to keen on walking all 3 universities are accessible by "the Tube" (the train service operating in London) and by local bus services.

    It would be possible to visit all three universities in one day.

    Congratulations! If you don't mind me asking when did you apply? Have you completed your A levels already?
    Thanks, I sent UCAS off on 3rd October. In year 13 (17 years old) studying maths, further, history and econ at A2.

    I talked about socio-economic inequalities and stratifications of wealth distribution over the course of history in our world after reading Piketty's "Capital", developments of financial markets and their implications since the 19th century learnt through the Yale open course, analysis of financial crises of Latin America (one from their course precisely) and East asian counties and how it introduced me to deeper facets of economic history and about having time to learn socio-political and economic history of Europe during work experiance in Germany and Liechtenstein. Mine is also Econ predominately but I've tried to blend in Econ history to show I want to truly study their course. Hope the attention to detail with their course modules and what I've mentioned works out aha!

    Thanks for your reply! Do you know whether you can just enter the university buildings and have a look around?

    no problem

    Yes you're allowed to tour the universities

    When you tour the universities you could use these--

    http://www.lse.ac.uk/study/meetLSE/p...rer-ForWeb.pdf

    http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-stu...lf-guided-tour

    http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prosp-students/.../virtual-tour/




    If in doubt give the universities a call, or when you get there seek the main reception I'm sure they'll help

    I'm self teaching FM this year, and honestly, once you do FP1 and FP2 you mights as well do the whole a level
    S2 and S3 took me about a week, S4 a week and M2 a few days whereas FP1 and 2 took me like 5 weeks in total 2, obviously taking up more time
    I didn't bother trying to learn D1 literally what is even going on in that module haha

    Funnily enough, since this email I've finished FP1! Haha I'm going to do FP2 over the next few weeks before Christmas and then I'm going to take up S3 and S4 since I'm focussing on the stats route. How did you find them?

    FP2 was hard, mainly cuz I hadn't done either c3 or c4 when I started haha
    S3 was straightforward, like S2 but a bit longer
    S4 was longer than S3 and harder, but more pure maths so it's easier in that sense
    Also FP2, S3 and S4 didn't have revision guides so I finally had to use the big textbook to learn them haha but overall they were fine you'll be okay haha

    I did them in the summer... Which also made fp2 and s4 pretty damn hard haha
    I used the revision guides for m2 s2 and fp1 which allowed me to get through the AS suppeeeerr quickly I'd definitely recommend I used cgp and the mei revise for structured mathematics guides

    The offer is A*AA, with the A* in Maths, and the 3 can't include Further Maths. It was a great birthday present! I'm predicted A*A*A*AA, and got AAAAB last year.

    Thank you! Where else have you applied?
