Seems like there's competition for Wharton now.

Which only means that this programme will be one of the most competitive at LSE.

Interesting, Year 1 and 2 are very similar to Acc & Finance course. Year 3 is very different. I think it will be very competitive.
I have an offer for A & F and definitely thinking of taking some of those third year courses. Thanks useful info. I would switch if I could but it won't be offered til 2016.

There could also be some huge rivalry between Econ and Finance students.

I think demanding Further Maths A-level is a but much. Finance doesn't traditionally have the requirement to be so taxing mathematically. LSE's Finance degree is essentially an Economics, or Financial Economics degree, so it's a bit misleading.

Isn't it just preferred?

Yes because not all sixth forms/colleges teach FM. Implying that it's strongly recommended, and at that, also needing to achieve a minimum grade A if you've done it at AS, suggests that most candidates on the course are likely to have it as a subject.

Do you think you'd be able to get in with only FM AS?

The course looks epic! It will become more competitive than Economics as most Economics students want to become investment bankers but this Finance course is perfect for that!

Do you think the competitiveness of BSC Economics will go down as a result of this course being introduced?

Excellent LSE course and the requirement for further maths is essential. I think the investment banks will put these graduates in high demand as more synthetic derivative products involving options and futures are developed. I think it will be highly competitive.

I agree, I think I will apply to this course instead of economics.
