The observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.

even applies to geography at a-level
Just its an easier observation, identification and description involving very little experimental investigation, and relatively easy to grasp phenomena explainations.

Yes physics is an example of Sciences and should be BSc but subjects like Government shouldn't be BSc. I didn't say LSE does physics or anything ... i used physics as an example...

yes But most unis require u to have Grade C at English and Mathematics no matter what you are studying...

"Course requirement: GCSE pass at grade C or better in Mathematics is expected"

Perhaps it's due to a first year module in political science

Somehow though, foreigners get lower offers.. but I'm not complaining coz' I'm Brit and got an offer
Have you got any objective evidence for this? If anything the most distinguished and famous LSE graduates tend to be non-British, suggesting if anything that they are more intellectually high-powered than the others...

Well thats debatable...I wouldn't consider Economics as a Science...I'd prefer to call subjects like physics , chemistry, biology and etc... sciences...
We r also talking about Economics A-level not Economics @ uni level which involves a lot of maths.
The problem is that the original meaning of the word 'science' has been taken over by the 'natural' sciences. If you use physics and chemistry as the model for academic work then social science then social science is not science. However if you use a different model, which goes back further historically, and which simply implies an attempt to apply general laws of evidence and experiment, then social science definitely is science..
