Hi All :lttd:,

Basically I Just got my GCSE Options on Wednesday, and I want to study at LSE, and then go into Investment Banking.

I Have a 6 Options but only 2 of them meet my criteria so I will only list them:

9 x GCSE Plus 2 Options and upto 3 Full Course/ Twilight Options (RE Full Course, Latin which i dont do, and ICT CIDA + )

9 x GCSE Plus 2 Options

So I would only do RE FULL COURSE if i do the first option, Isit any good any views?

and the Core Subjects Are: English Lit, English Lang, Maths, Citizenship Short Course, R.E Short Course, ICT AiDA, PE Non-GCSE, Additional Science Double GCSE, Geography or History, German as I have been doing it since Year 7.

I have the option to choose 4 courses but I can only get into 2 hence why it is 2 Options, So My first option will be Economics; I don't know what my other choices shall be I would like to choose Either Sociology, Triple Science, I.C.T.

I know there goes my 4 Choices; I don't know which to pick because I want either those I like I.C.T But I cant risk having the Same ****** Teacher he is so Fresh its unbelievable! I have not learn't anything in 3 Years!

So, Let me know how LSE sees Sociology, Triple Science and I.C.T GCSEs and your thoughts on them.

Started a Business On eBay at the age of 13 last year made 2k a week until Paypal saw suspicious activity as I was taking around 1-2k in the first week to fast then limitation couldn't fax in the documents as i'm under 18.

Also What are your thoughts on getting into LSE to do an Economics Course? what A-Levels shall I do?


Help PLEASE! :help:

LSE wow... you're going to have to work damn hard to get the amount of A* that they want over there.
I hope you're not going in to thie field just for the money but if you're genuinely interested; choose whatever subjects you want to do at GCSE, it doesn't matter all that much.

Then at A level do Maths, a Science maybe further maths or english then Economics..

Nah Serious, I genuinly Want to go into this business and the best uni for economics is LSE hence the name LOL

I don't do Latin, I would have had to get 5 5 5 at SATS in Year 6 but I got 5 5 4.
Would have loved to but apparently the teacher was **** aswell.

Really Want to get into LSE but second choice UCL

I'm pretty good at maths; Bad Teacher , Enlgish Love it Best Teacher, Science Don't Really understand due to a teacher I don't understand

I'm genuinely complaining about these teachers!, They don't Plan lessons and don't know what they're talking about either!

Any Help I got an Idea now Choosing Geog Definately, Economics, History, Triple Science and Sociology or I.C.T let me know

Heard that you shouldn't do Economics at A Level as Unis aren't looking for it don't know why.....

Please get back to me!

At AS level take Maths, Further Maths, ECO, Hist or Geog (but not both), Language
AT A2 level -Keep Maths , FM, ECO and one of Hist or Geog or Lang.

I hope I am more clear now. Good Luck - You can PM if you want.

Make sure your GCSEs include maths/triple sciences/eng lit/eng lang/econ/foreign language. Other than that it doesn't really matter.

Doesn't matter. Asking questions like these will kill your chances at IB anw.

Without causing offence, dont do subjects that are perceived to be non-academic like the arts and D&T, as for the field you want to go into they hold no relevance.

Secondly....just relax, they are GCSE options. Just choose subjects that are academic and you enjoy. Its the choices you make at a level which are crucial, like dont do both business studies and economics at a level.

Focus on traditional subjects. Sciences, essay writing subjects (history, geography, econ) and maths. But include one creative (drama music d.t) and one foreign language.

Really? That's news to me.

OT They don't really care at all, just do the "academic" ones and get A*'s. Although if you chose Art over RS I doubt they'd care, the number of A*'s is much more important than what they are in (generally speaking).

I'd say R.E is better than ICT and Economics (economics at GCSE really isn't worthwhile)
