    I'm thinking about applying for that next year, what kind of grades do you have if you don't mind me asking?
    GCSEs: 9A*s 1A (well, sort of 10 A*s as my school made us do core science in yr 10 before we did bio, chem and phys in year 11

    AS levels: AAAA in Maths, Economics, History and English Lit

    Predicted A*AA (A* in econ - dropped English Lit)

    Hope that helps!

    They say that if you don't have economic (not quantitative) background, then you need to take the two years route. Actually, they expect you to have some quantitative background, and more precisely "two semesters of university-level calculus or equivalent". I guess if you will be able to do this within your economic history degree, then you will be fine. I am not sure why you mentioned GMAT though - it isn't part of the program, it is an admission test.

    Yes, I must take the GMAT during the two years of my masters. Economic history already goes through microeconomics and macro and some other modules in the economics bsc degree. so will i have to take two years - and in those two years i will complete calculus and university level maths to help me through my masters in economics right?

    Has anybody actually been offered a place for maths with economics yet? I have been told a while ago that they'll let me know within 8 weeks.

    You're welcome I'm sure things will work out for the best - I'm rather nervous myself as LSE's admissions dept. is rather erratic (so I've heard anyway). How come you're applying next year? (Are you in Year 12 or taking a gap year?)

    I'm applying for the same subject. Why do you think we won't hear back this year? I got my 8 week email on October 31st so they should reply by December 26th. When did you get your 8 week email?

    Am I the only one on here with an 8 week email for economic history?

    No, I have the 8 week email as well. I'm almost done. Think I got 2 more weeks.

    Just to let you all know, don't take the 8 week countdown as gospel. I applied last year and didn't get a reply until a few weeks after the 8 week countdown had finished. Even then, it was only to say wait a few more weeks. My final decision came at the end of January but, a friend of mine didn't get theirs till late feb - it's completely random!

    In case you were wondering, I didn't get in. I had applied for a deferred entry place which was probably naive. However, after getting better than expected results, I've decided to reapply to LSE - fingers crossed.

    Haha How are you finding LSE?
    I'm enjoying it. All the misconceptions are exaggerated quite a bit. I came thinking it would be full of cliquey groups which there are but it doesn't take a genius to find people who want to socialise. Biggest key is choosing the right halls [Passfield, Carr-Saunders, Bankside, Roseberry]

    Then again it's accepted that we have a smaller social life than those of other uni's eg Bristol etc etc but we all knew the trade-off by firming LSE.

    As far as I'm aware LSE offers kind of come in rounds... not sure if this is true but apparently they take the most clear cut candidates then keep reviewing waves until some offers will only come in March time...

    Just got my offer for PPE. I received the 8 week email on only 13 days ago... bit odd. Can't complain though
