    Hey guys,
    Havent actually posted on this thread before.
    Just wanting to say to all those who haven't heard yet, dont be disheartened I got into LSE and UCL with the minimum requirements of A*AA, and ok GCSEs.
    Best of luck!

    Also, I would really like some advice on what uni to firm and what to insure? I have offers from LSE, UCL, Birmingham and Manchester (I applied for pure economics to all universities). I really liked UCL and never even considered LSE as I was so sure I would get rejected (hearing how they are GCSEs Nazis etc.).

    Thanks in advance

    you must get an oustanding PS which I believe they put more focus on than GCSE and A-level. which one to firm and insure depends on which suits you more (location,course structure and the environment,..) hope u make a right choice
    I am still waiting for LSE on the same course. Many people already got their offer for l101 and the last week is often a massive rejection week as in 2011, I am now dying for worries. If you don't like LSE, can we swap our offer then? jk

    Congrats! All of them are amazing unis and you should be proud to have offers from them. May I ask what A Levels you took as you said you got in only having A*AA? Just wondering

    And regarding your other question: Did you visit both? Reputation wise LSE is a bit better but that shouldn't influence your decision. There is not much of a difference between the Top 5 universities in economics. So if I were you I would choose the university where I think I will fit in better. LSE is famous for having loads of students that opt for a career in investment banking and hence they are very very career driven. Of course you'll find the same at UCL but it seems to be that at LSE it is much extremer. So you shouldn't make a decision before you have visited both and checked out the atmosphere

    13/10, I hope so as well. I know UCL is also good for Eco but not in comparison to LSE
    How is UCL not good for Economics "in comparison to LSE"?

    ...the ****?

    as you may find info on their website, lse has more courses related to economics and therefore it's more flexible if you change your mind, also I think lse is more mathsy and maths is an integral part of eco I may say

    You know LSE's economics course is said to be even more mathsy than Cambridge's but I'd never say that LSE is better than Cambridge :confused:

    I was predicted A*AAB in maths, economics, biology and further maths respectively (even though I achieved an A at AS level for further maths).
    I didnt get asked for UMS from UCL, but I did for LSE but my UMS for Maths was not really good either - got couple of B's and even a C in my D1 (but it was that OCR paper that had an "incorrect" question which no one could answer).

    Good luck!

    I plan to go to the LSE open day and then choose, thanks for the help

    More courses related to economics? In what way? UCL Economics is designed to teach Economics. You do know that, right? In what way does it have more courses related to Economics?

    From what I've read/come across (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong), the UCL L100/1 course(s) are very Mathematical, perhaps not as much as LSE, mind. Doesnt necessarily make it as superior to UCL as you are making out it does.

    THis. UCL can never be described as not good not matter what you're comparing it to.
