I just returned from Tuesday (1st Mar)'s UGAA assessment for my LLB Law programme. Did well in the writing section A & B (25+50%) but did terribly wrong in maths section C (25%)........looks like rejection...unless luck strucks.

The only hope is if I managed to score exceptionally well in the first two writing Qs and score the 70%+ then luck may strike but then again been told they mark as an 'overall' which means one needs to score high marks in all sections in order to get an average. In my case, its not just good preparation, but luck seems to be the main hope as I allocated a good amount of time to prepare for UGAA without knowing I have to do maths part! In my college, I'm the only one who applied for Law at LSE which probably explains why I was not clued up through batch mates as many others do in other colleges.

As it is highly unlikely I would get an offer, I have already started to explore other offers including from nearby colleges NCH London and ULaw which also provides LLB Law UG programme.

Last year they heard back 2-2.5 after the test so my logic is that the later I hear back the better because it just means I haven't been rejected yet:'D
Tbh I did quite bismally so I appreciate every day that goes by without a rejection

That's a good way to look at it. I think I did pretty bad. My maths was ok, except I missed a few on the last question and that was quite a lot of the marks. (I did the 25% section) and my precis was also rubbish. Felt like I sounded like a 3 year old.

Anyone else terribly impatient now? It's scary to think that we get a reply next week :s
Do you think getting 60% is enough?

The pass is 60% but there is no guarantee even if you are getting 90%, it still depends on your overall application. They probably use ugaa when they need to choose between 2 quite similar candidates (same grades, similar ps's) and LSE is the only uni who haven't replied to me yet, which annoys me a lot. I want to know whatever their decision is

I get you! I'm still waiting on Edinburgh but other than that it's only lse. I just wish I knew already. Where else have you got offers from?

I'm the same. I applied for 5 uni's, and 4 have replied. I just want to know either way from LSE so I can accept or decline the other offers. I really don't think I will get into LSE, I feel like I completely bombed the exam. I was in a noisy area and it was the first exam I've taken in about 10 years. Anyway, I'm looking forward to a reply...

Congrats on all the offers! For me it's Durham, Exeter, Glasgow. LSE seems pretty hopeless tbh, section D went terribly. Having not finished 3 questions, I just wish they would put me out of my misery :'D

Nothing yet but I have a gut feeling that it's gonna be tomorrow:s I'm so nervous tbh I half don't want to know. Wouldn't really like any other uni I applied to.
Do you know anyone who has heard back already?
