    IMO the perfect combination of subjects is Mathematics, Further Maths (shows you are clever) and definitely History. History is a hard subject which improves your understanding about the world, politics, improves argumentation and evaluation as well as your writing skills. I think that having A grades at these subjects would put your application in the strongest positions at most of the courses. Anyone disagree?
    well i agree with maths for sure. however if you are taking 3 a-levels, then you should not take further maths, maybe take F.M at AS Level. This is because it doesn't show a variety of subjects. If you are taking 4 a-levels then further maths is perfect. Also History is a good subject( recommended subject) however i feel Economics is slightly better and more challenging and more related to Finance. Economics also requires evaluation, improves arguments and writing skills and is related to the current global issues of today in the world of Finance.

    Really? I agree that maths and econ are a definite yes, but the way I see it, there's really no point choosing a "black-listed" subject unless it's your fourth option and you're genuinely interested in it or something. I think it would make much more sense to choose something else that's essay-based, like psychology? I don't know haha, but what I do know is that taking say business studies up for a third option wouldn't be such a great idea, especially if you've already chosen Economics (I've heard LSE tends to favour those who have a diverse-ish range of A-levels, but again, I could be wrong). ^^

    You are probably right, Economics is more related to finance (but do they actually want that? You will learn that anyway in during their course) and teaches you basically the same skills, however I don't think it is as tough as History.
    I myself did 4 A-levels, but I regret I didn't take History though.

    Hey guys,

    I am currently in my first year at LSE reading accounting and finance.

    I would just like to say that LSE will not reject you if you have taken all science based subjects. I am living proof having taken Maths, Physics and Chemistry at A level. I received my offer in March so some of you may be waiting a long time!
    Remember there are about 17 applicants for every place so you need to have something unique about you to get noticed. LSE have more applicants per place than Oxbridge do.

    Congratulations to everybody who as received an offer and good luck for your exams in the summer!
