    I have just sent my application off to do Economics at LSE (L101)

    My A-Level Grades:
    AS History (A) - predicted A*
    AS Economics (A) - predicted A
    A2 Maths (A*)
    AS Further Maths - predicted A

    So, A*A*Aa

    My GCSESs are a bit weird they way my school strucutre it. It was compulosry to do a vocational course, and I chose BTec Business, recieved D*D*, which is equivalent to 4A*'s. I also got a Distinction* for BTec Sport. And for the normal GCSE's, I got 1A*, 6A*, 2B.

    So overall, 6A*, 6A, 2B

    My personal statement was about travel and the German, Turkish economy (been to both countries many times), I also talked about an article, and linked it with the current british economy - trying to cut deficit. I also expressed how mathematically capable I am of doing the course!

    Am I likely to get past the 5 week email, or get an automatic no before the 2 week email?

    Really worried :confused:

    I applied for International Relations on the 14th of October, and received an e-mail stating in 2 weeks I will receive an update but haven't gotten anything yet, and it's nearly been a month. My friend from class also applied (but for Law), and got a rejection last week. Does anyone have any idea when am I going to get any notice?
    Same position as you! No reply for 4 weeks! I think I've officially entered a state of constant torture!

    It will be 2 weeks on Friday into my 5 week stage. I've applied for straight History. I haven't heard anything with regards other History applicants receiving offers. I think people will hear back within the next 3-4 weeks for sure.

    Hi guys, I'm a spanish student who would like to apply to Government here. Do you think it's too late for me to have any possibility? I had a 10 in my Spanish Bachiller last year (A levels) and they're asking for a 9 so that I already have it.

    It's not too late! Your grades exceed their minimum requirements and they've been achieved so you've got as much of a chance as anyone else. Concentrate on writing the best possible personal statement dedicated to government, apply, cross your fingers and join us all in waiting for a decision :] The deadline to apply for equal considerate by LSE is on the 15th January (though I personally would try and submit it at least a few days before) so take the time to write the best personal statement you can.

    Thank you very much. I already have my PS and I'm hoping to send my application this week. Let's see how it works out
