see the flag by his name..I received a letter encouraging me to apply for some of their scholarships after I got an offer; I'm sure there were some for EU/international students, and I'd say there were some for home students as well (not sure on this one though)

haven't applied for any since I had already decided about my firm choice by that time, so can't tell how difficult is it to be given one.

I'm not sure if they offer... local organizations do offer you and allow you to study anywhere, but after you're done you're bonded to that organization for about 3-4 years. Once you've finished your bond you can leave

So how is it like studying at LSE?

Hey, just thought I'd say hi, I've applied to join this society. Hope to study Economics + Philosophy at uni, starting 2007, not fully decided where though yet.

All the best

Ah sorry everyone for the delay in accepting members. I am very busy at the moment and can't spend much time in TSR anymore, dont think I can in near future.

I would very much like it if the members use this society to discuss curret economic affairs. Please take the initiative. Once you start, I am sure you will find it very interesting. The society has 79 members, so there is great potential. I will log in from time to time to accept new members.

You can also discuss universities here. I believe we have some uni students in our midst who can provide help.

You'll love it! If you're as sad as me. Most of the economic principles at AS I found very easy, nothing at all majorly hard, make sure you know a bit of background on the british economy, who controls what, eg Bank of England's monetary policy commitee controllig interest rates.

The bank of england website is very helpful reading into why interest rates have to be changed, the importance of the MPC etc.

Also, flick onto the BBC website, and so a search for 'economy', read through a few of the bbc news articles on the british economy, get an idea of what's going on.

This will put you in a perfect position to get learning all the graphs and principles and well, everything.

A-Level economics requires no original thought and as long as you say the right things in the right way you'll get full marks. It's an exercise in being a Parrot. Start reading around the subject. It's intrinsically linked to politics, Hayek's "Road to Serfdom" and Friedman's "Capitalism and Freedom" are good choices.

Not quite that easy, and I'm not that sure reading those books are 'required' for Economcis A-level - in fact, I know they're not required. However, if you do have a real interest in Economics, then read away...
