I understand what people have been saying about the entrance exams and whatnot but how is it fair to compare people who have taken those exams against those who haven't? I am an International Student and I wasn't asked to take the entrance exams but wouldn't it be my disadvantage if I don't get to 'show' myself through the exams like some of the other candidates?

This is somehow confusing and seems unfair! (Not that I'm complaining because it'd be a pain to sit through an entrance exam.. ugh)
Well, the exam is only to demonstrate that the candidate knows the basics. I.e. English and mathematics. I should think that going by PS, reference and grades, they prefer the people doing the entrance exam - they just want to make sure that they know the basics before enrolling them on the degree course. If they, however, fail the test, someone else will have to be considered for a spot - which would be most people still waiting to hear from the LSE. My 2 cents

not many i think. Hope they arent just stringing us along and then dumping us on the 31st. That would be evil but not unusual of the LSE
hahahah. omg. i really hope that's not the case =P

Oh wow, I guess LSE is slower than I thought. I thought they would have responded to all the non-gathered applicants already.

P.S. Are you from Hong Kong? Just curious because I am!

Nope, I haven't heard back since October, lol.
You should be happy though - you have an offer from UCL, that's amazing already!
Btw, I just noticed your Nottingham offer - are you doing the Canadian diploma or the IB?

Yup, I do IB! How many subjects do you take for the Canadian diploma? Isn't it stressful to take two more subjects on top of that? IB's stressful enough, I can't imagine doing more, haha.
& to answer your other question, LSE is my top choice but if not (hopefully that won't happen), I'll be heading towards Bristol!

I sent you a private message, so we won't get warned for being "off topic"
