    I think a pass in A level refers to getting 40% (E) or above.
    That converts to 80% at AS level, so if you can attain 80% or above in your AS FM, it is considered as a pass in A level FM.

    Hope this helps x !
    I think that is doable! I was thinking that but I was unsure, I've asked for confirmation and I've emailed a few of my teachers who will speak to them if necessary. Last thing I want is for them to retract the offer due to a mistake haha! I very much doubt that could happen.

    Can someone help me with this?

    I think it was just a typo but it would mean that they would have to cancel and resend the offer.
    You could just sit 6 FM modules without learning them very well. If they only want a pass, you could just get an E.

    As said the two things mean the same thing. For me to pass A Level FM I need an A in AS FM but you would have thought they would have just said AS FM like with you.

    Will have to admit your reply has made me feel a bit more uncertain again haha!

    Yeah I mean I could definitely get a pass but I wasn't scheduled to do A Level FM so I thought it peculiar they would have it feature in my conditional offer this way instead of just saying to get an A in AS FM.

    Got rejected because I didn't make one of their entry requirements! (They asked for 6,6,6 at Higher Level, but being predicted a 7,7,5 I figured it was worth a shot -- guess not :P) Have you heard from them yet?

    Sorry to hear that. Did you receive the 8-week email before the rejection?

    Hi, I got an offer for economics - A*AA plus a pass in A Level FM as a forth subject - but I currently only do AS FM, therefore I am currently not able to meet the offer even if I were to get full marks in all my Maths modules in the summer! I have emailed the admissions office and it said that I have to wait 2 to 5 days for an answer. Can anyone else help me for now?
    Are you an international applicant? Could you tell me when you received your 8-week email? Thanks.

    Just to clarify, has anyone received an offer for mathematics and economics? I know that several people have received offers for mathematics with economics.
    Really? I applied mathematics with economics but still have not receive a response. Worrying.....

    I can see my LSE application failing hard, not doing FM is going to kill me.

    Edit: In my reference my tutor stated I got the highest UMS of all the single maths students at my college, do you think they'd take this into account?

    I got 7A* and 4A's at IGCSE and have 44 predicted IB points with 7,7,7 in HL maths, economics and chemistry. I learnt FM independently as my school doesn't offer it and mentioned it in my PS. Good luck to everyone else applying!
