    what are you talking about? if ur refering to my bio ps..im applied for 2 foundation programmes in law outside of my ucas app. law is my top choice, but because it is soo competative i wouldnt mind studying biology, which is a subject im passionate about, and wouldnt mind doing at all. i can come back to the us and go to law school here. so please be quiet, and dont talk about things you dont understand, u never even helped, all you did was sit there and criticize as usual, so please, im asking kindly...Shut up! thank you....anyway....anyone with VALUABLE input?

    Go for it... you will never know unless you try!

    The School does prefer conventional qualifications but also states that it often admits those without such qualifications.

    Further, if you have any relevant experience, they may take this in lieu (partially of course) of qualifications.

    Lastly, you will need to write a very impressive Personal Statement!

    Remember, A-Levels are no longer as impressive as they once were - A's and B's are becoming so much easier to attain, or at least so much more common. Therefore, if you do all the above correctly, you may be at an advantage over others.

    Lastly, you will have to sit an entrance exam - which A-Level students do not have to do (yet). Whether or not you are offered a place also relies on the outcome of this exam. The Exam is tough, but fair - and of LSE standards...

    Anywho, Good Luck!



    Ps: I also suggest you work part-time (if you do not do so allready) whilst you're in the process of obtaining your Foundation Degree; I say this because work experience is also favoured by most universities nowadays. Good grades/education and practical/social skills are equally as important.

    Like I said, it is to LSE standards and involves writing a Precis (Summary), 2 Essays, Maths and Accounting! Not easy, but not very hard! 3 Hours...

    Further, they only invite people to sit the Exam if they are interested in their application.

    Good Luck!

    Ps: Those who are invited to sit the Exam are sent sample papers anyway...

    LSE is the ultimate level(?) you can reach with foundation course.


    i mean comon, its basically a year long course that is suppose to replace A-level.

    it will be difficult and very very competitive.


    Id suggest, take 3 a levels in a year or,

    go to somewhere like warwick with found. yr and work bloody hard and transfer to LSE. IF you really really want to


    i heard about few ppl who went to LSE with found. yr

    they are usually very gifted people who cant afford to attend expensive private school for 2 years.



    ps. i m assuming you are from outside UK

    It does not matter, you still have to complete the maths and accounting section... with only a few exceptions.

    Don't worry.

    UCL probably has the most intake from foundation course than any other Unis.


    they are raising enourmous money through foreign students with all possible routes.

    one very typical way is foundation course.

    It's only been in use since last year, I believe.

    I would reccomend that you also post your questions in the Law sub-forum.
