    From previous they say it's usually Fridays but it can vary for different departments

    Last year it was mostly Thursday and Fridays.
    I remember when they released a batch in December before the holidays every body was freaking out saying all the acceptances were on Thursdays and the rejections were on Fridays..but like that's not necessarily the case, but they do tend to release offers at the end of the week yes

    I sent mine on the 14th October and got my 8 week email on 31st October. I applied for maths and economics so hopefully that means they'll send me their decision soon!! Are you international or from the UK?
    No I'm from the UK

    Thanks for the heads up! I actually sent my application on the same date as you did, sounds like you are a very strong candidate though, my 8 weeks email came on the 31st of October and I am still yet to hear a response from them.

    Do you mind sharing your AS results / A level predicted / GCSE results? (or IGCSE / IB predicted or whatever programme you are using)

    Eughhh the waiting game is
    I wouldn't say strongest hahaha!
    3A*'s |5A'S|3B's
    ....which aren't the dazzling set of GCSE's most people here have ( though I have extenuating circumstances)

    3A's and a D (though I didn't put that on and I said I was taking an extra AS to make up for the one I didn't have)

    A*A*A prediction.

    My ums scores were quite high tbf and I think my personal statement was strong + I'm taking additional further maths AS....

    Tbh it's just God 😁

    That's also what I've concluded after reviewing the stalking pages. It seems like offers are sent on Thursday and rejections are on Fridays this year as well.

    I got an unconditional offer for BSc Philosophy & Politics a few hours ago! Very happy as I was absolutely terrified I would get rejected this year.

    I got an offer from LSE last year for Law but I declined it in favour of UCL and I thought getting in then was just a fluke!
    loooooool, I applied for the same course at the same time. Probably gonna get smacked up by the rejection tomorrow :bl:

      I saw a post a couple of days ago of someone who didn't get an offer because he didn't study his native language (which was Chinese) at all..

      Are you sure they don't want you to take your native language as a subject? I'm doing the IB and considering that you have to take 6 subjects for it, I don't see why taking your native language should be a problem..

      Plus, on their website it says you normally take 3 "preferred" subjects, which you do right? You just have your native language as a fourth subject, which is extra, and therefore it's better than having 3 subjects without the native language..

      At least this is what I think.. I don't think LSE is likely to penalise you for having taken a fourth A level, even if it is your native language..

      I also take German HL in the IB and I don't expect any disadvantage from it..

      Just for your info:

      "Successful applicants normally offer three A levels (A2s) in our generally preferred subjects, or two generally preferred subjects and one from the list of subjects that are non-preferred"

      EDIT: managed to find the post:

      "But LSE rejected me because I am chinese and I don't take first language chinese..."
      ya i've heard that lse consider taking your native language (or what they think is your native language) as a second language to be an easy way out and not a 'real' subject. one of my friends took chinese first language at gcse, but is taking foreign language chinese hl at ib and she couldn't apply because of it.
