    Perhaps I asked you too many questions. Did they give you a reason as to why they rejected you? I'm just wondering because I got rejected from Cambridge and if someone that got an offer from Cambridge got rejected from Warwick then what are my chances?
    They didn't give a reason, but I got (relatively speaking) poor gcses and don't do further maths.

    Greed is good.
    Nono, you've got it the wrong way round! Greed is bad! Isn't that what they taught you in primary school?

    And okay, thanks for the response Acerbic and Datguy.

    So if the last ucl economics invitation day is on the 14th march, then surely we should be expecting all offer replies this week because they can't really give you less than two weeks notice can they?

    Well despite your abundance in knowledge, I think I'll go with the student there.
    Yeah...But he is wrong.

    + The fact the salary is pro - ratered so if someone were to do a placement from Bath at an IB you would take home circa 18k gross, morevover I beleive you do placements where the 1st one, your salary is slightly lower. So to think you will come away with 50k is completely wrong. This added to the fact that a newly graduated Analyst expects to be on 36k base.

    :yes: I think you're right. Although I do remember some people receiving an invitation roughly one week before the actual open day, so it could go so far as 7th March...

    It seems like they can give as little as 1 week notice.

    You might have a bit of knowledge about IB but you can't claim to know what every Bath economics undergraduate was doing in their placement year.

    Did you get onto the Credit Suisse scheme?

    no offence, but are you doing economics just to get a job in investment banking because you will make more money?
    In economics, do we not assume that all economic agents wish to maximise their own self-interest?
    One may choose another career than Investment Banking for non-monetary reasons granted...

    I love economics and I want to be rich. not necessarily independent variable hahaha

    After the open day, I can't decide between LSE and UCL. They're both miles ahead of every other university on terms of research for Economics. Sigh...life was easier when I thought there was only one top university for that catagory

    This is my first ever post soo here goes..

    I am in year 12 at the moment studying maths (a2), french (as) and economics (as). i will definitely continue with french and economics next year (year 13) but i am unsure of whether to do further maths to either a level or AS, as i am finding maths quite hard at the moment. i am hoping to go to lse or ucl to study economics and was wondering how crucial it is for me to study further maths?

    there is still an option for me to take up a new subject for AS such as geography.

    any advice would be greatly appreciated

    You pretty much do need Fmaths if you want to have a chance, though AS is enough if you have other strong subjects.

    Unfortunately, even though you say you are finding maths difficult, i would say because of your economics and french (though the language is good, economics if not needed and these unis would probably prefer one of them to be a science) that you probably need full A Level Fmaths next year. The light at the end of the tunnel is that if you do manage to get an offer from, let's say LSE, then they will probably just ask for E (pass) in Fmaths A Level.

    Don't take up geography (unless you love it and don't want to do econ at LSE or UCL)

    I sent everything to LSE Graduate Admissions Office about 2 weeks ago, got a final email from them about 4 or 5 days ago. My first choice is Diploma in Accounting & Finance (then plan on going into the MSc) and second choice is an MSc in Finance. I keep checking LSE For You, but nothing yet! Still "under consideration by the department". I keep checking and checking, I know it can take ages but nonethless!

    flip a coin to decide? Chances are, you'll be wanting it to land on a certain side, and that way you'll know where you really want to go before it's even landed.

    Because you're interested in postgraduate studies LSE is probably better, having said that it's not like you are going to get turned down from any postgraduate courses with a 1st from UCL being the reason!
