    Oh when did you receive it? So I suppose they won't reject/give out offers before this questionnaire is completed by all candidates? Or is it not that important?
    The purpose is to ensure that we have more consistent information from our Economics applicants and so can make more informed decisions.

    I'd say it's quite important, but as you're not doing A-Levels you may not receive it?

    Groat Have you filled it in ?
    When it says:

    Indicate if you are taking any of these additional Maths qualifications. (Select all that apply)

    AEA

    STEP

    IB Further Maths

    Additional Further Maths AS/A level

    Other
    If you selected other please specify

    Is the one that says "Additional Further Maths AS/A level" the same thing as FM A level ? So I am doing AQA Maths and Further Maths, do I tick the box that says "Additional Further Maths AS/A level" or is there a difference between it and Further Maths ?.

    Thnx

    yep, just about to start it!
    How did you get the questionnaire? I did not get anything yet, I am applying for straight econ. What did it say?

    If anyone can answer, that would be a big help thanks!

    Ah okay so they ask you about A Levels? UMS scores etc.? Sorry I don't know anything about that, hence my stupid questions

    Additional Further Maths is beyond Further Maths (when you do 15 modules in total for the AS, or 18 for the A2).

    So, if you're just doing Maths and Further Maths, leave it un-ticked.

    I wonder if people will regret saying they're doing STEP when LSE give them an offer including it.

    I'd already put all my UMS onto UCAS, yet all the form is basically asking for are all your UMS scores. You'll probably get the questionnaire soon, don't worry!

    step is so difficult... and arbitrary... i can get a 1 on some papers, and 3 and u on others... thats one of the reasons i switched from maths to econ

    is ums and extra maths exams all they ask in the form??

    They just ask whether you are doing any other maths exams like STEP/AEA and your UMS, that's it.

    If you're doing it, yes. But remember that LSE don't interview, so don't be surprised if you get an offer and it happens to have a 1 in STEP tagged on the end.

    If someone isn't doing it, should he do it just so he can put it down and increase the chances of an offer. A STEP offer is better than no offer eh?
    What do people think ?
