    If the system works like I think it does, then the only universities which can see your STEP grades would be those listed on the form-Cambridge, Oxford, Warwick, Imperial, Bath and Bristol.
    My tutor at UCL knew that me and another lad in my tutorial group had taken STEP.

    Lol srsly?????

    I spoke to the admissions tutor on an open day and I asked if I could get away with not mentioning any economics since I planned/and chose similar courses as you. Just paraphrasing, he said it would be detrimental since you still need to demonstrate interest and acknowledge the 25% economics... I know several success stories (i.e. Oxford or Cambridge offers and LSE offers) and they said that they mentioned a topic related to economics and linked it to a field of mathematics AT THE VERY LEAST in their PS. Of course the PS is only one part of the admissions process so it might be possible to get away with it.
    Yeah as I just mentioned to MPC1 that's the official word but I saw many TSRians last year who received offers with no mention of economics.

    Did you list it on your UCAS form when you applied as an extra qualification that was pending?

    Has anybody heard anything from Durham yet? They are supposed to ''email all applicants to request UMS marks for all mathematics modules taken so far'' but they haven't emailed me yet. I'd have thought they'd have done that by now, as I applied like a month ago. Also, anyone been there? is it nice?
    No, nothing yet. Maybe they are just waiting for a few for applications before they start sending them out (makes it easier for them maybe?). I've been there, it's loveely. I went to a Maths course there this summer. Stayed in Grey college and just fell in love with the place. The tutor/lecturer we had was amazing, was funny too. Maths department doesn't look all very shiny and cool but it's nice and everyone seemed really nice/welcoming.

    Ah, ok. I guess it shows up on your thing with your A-Level results...though for some reason schools can't see the results directly, the only possible way to get them is online on results day :indiff: strange.

    Well at least there is some relief in hearing nobody else has heard from them yet! Yeah I guess they must be. Awesome! I'd have gone to an open day but the rail fares are so damn expensive, sounds cool though. Hopefully they'll have open days in new year for people with offers.

    You look like a very strong applicant. Give it a bit more time and you should expect the replies to roll in. Many applications are held until January for equal opportunity purposes so chances are yours may not have been looked at yet.

    Not another one... when did you submit your application?
    Edit: looked through your previous posts, so I haven't been neglected quite yet. I'll start feeling neglected when people who submitted their applications after me get offers. Edwin will be .

    Yep, so definite letter from UCL's admissions team came through today - A*AA with A*A in Maths/Further Maths (order doesn't seem to matter according to it - but I already have the A* in Maths so never mind ^_^) and compulsory introductory day. Nice to finally see it officially rather than the recommendation from the maths department!
    Was the definite letter sent by general admissions dept?

    If the official letter is not received yet, any idea who should be contacted?

    thank you

    I applied for Maths w/ Economics at LSE - straight maths everywhere else. They say they don't expect you to mention economics at all in your personal statement since they know you may well be applying for straight maths at all your other universities. I didn't even slightly mention it.
    exactly the same for me.

    did you apply for all 3 year courses or 4 year degree courses? Are 4 year degree courses in Imperial, UCL, KCL etc more recognized elsewhere than the 3 year ones?

    any offers from LSE across TSR so far?

    I think it's on one paper, not sure though.
