    Hey guys,
    Firstly, good luck with all your AS Level examinations in the summer! Hope you guys will do your best and get all the results you deserved.

    Secondly, anyone thinking about their university choices yet? I personally wanted to do computer science but then Physics got to me and gave up that dream. Now I'm concentrating more on Economics / Management ( hence LSE) Anyone thinking of doing the same course and so have any advice for me? Since it's time to think about what to put into our UCAS application anyway.

    Thank you!

    Want to do Econ at LSE.
    Just concentrate on your AS and in Summers concentrate on your P.S it really matters tbh
    The courses are really competitive so you have to work hell alot!
    What were your GCSEs grades and AS subjects

    It's either Econ of management in LSE for me. Now I'm just focusing on AS hoping to get AAA for chem, Econ and Maths, I also do physics but only hope to get C/B for physics for AS.
    Did IGCSE instead, and I heard its harder then GCSE. Got 2A* and 6A's
    How about you? How's your revision for AS? (:

    My revision is going alright, but got maths coming up in like 2 weeks time so pretty streesed out atm. :/
    Scared for physics though, hoping to get a B, since AAAB for AS doesnt sound too bad (:

    Last time i checked there's a mangament course, but its a standalone course, seperated from Econ, it would be amazing if there is one though.

    I'm in the IB, and my Higher Levels are English Literature, History of the Americas, and Economics. I'm not terribly confident, given that I don't know too much about the British application system, but I suppose you never know until you try!
    Have you visited the LSE campus yet?

    no not yet sadly im going home just before the open days, im not from the UK so yeah :/
    most of my friends do IB but i do A-levels instead, thats not a bad combination to be fair.

    I think you will have a chance. Would be important to concentrate more on PS. Also Econ is more competitive so you could try Management instead, for example. Good luck!

    That's what everyone says, to concentrate on doing my PS. The thing is I have no idea how to, so it's a good idea that I start now :/
    And btw, looking at your username, are you Vietnamese by any chance?
