    Hi, im currently in year 11 and yet to do many exams. I was wondering what would be needed to do economics at LSE both academically and non academically. For example whether i should do DofE or what type of work experience i should do, the type of grades i need to attain.

    Currently ive completed 2 GCSEs, maths(A*) and RS(A)

    And i have yet to complete:
    History ( predicted A*)
    FSMQ (Predicted A)
    Physics ( predicted A*)
    Chemistry( predicted A*)
    Biology( predicted A*)
    Business and Economics ( predicted A*)
    English language( predicted B)
    English literature( predicted B)
    French( predicted A)

    Also, ive chosen to do maths, further maths, economics and chemistry at a level

    But many people do the maths a level and LSE have to distinguish candidates somehow. What would that be?

    LSE don't care about extra curriculars, so it isn't of much use doing D of E.

    Make sure if you want to study there that you are comfortable with Maths and also make sure you get good GCSEs.

    P.S. nice A levels.

    There isnt anything specifically 'Economics' re. volunteering etc, so just do anything that increases your maturity/confidence, gives you experience of dealing with people and makes you think outside your comfort zone.

    What Universities look for are applicants who have done interesting things and *can explain what they've got out of doing it that will be useful at Uni.* So, just listing what you do outside school is a waste of time. Tell them about how it improved your organisational skills, your time-keeping, your ability to handle money, get on with people from outside your background or whatever. This applies to playing in a local orchestra, helping to run the local brownie pack, running a marathon, working in an Oxfam shop or any of the other hundreds of ways you can give a bit of your own time. So, no it doesnt have to be subject specific, just do something meaningful that you enjoy and think about what its teaching you along the way.
