    Thank you.

    2:1 is tough but achievable.

    I thought a University such as Oxford would frown upon any degree which is not a 1st Class Pass.
    2:i is the minimum requirement across the board. You will probably need much stronger recommendation letters than what you will need if you have a 1st. Academics trust other academics in presenting the right candidates for their courses.

    Most of the graduates would have achieved a 1st, but there are also many with 2:i. If the admission statistics is anything to go by, graduate courses are even harder to get into, compared to the undergraduate level.

    So, IMO, your recommendation letters play a very important role in the admission process. And, if you are in the UK at the time of application, you will probably be invited to an interview too.

    I know people who have gone to do graduate courses at Oxford having come from far humbler universities than LSE. If your undergrad degree is good, then you're in with a good chance.
