Hey guys!
I just applied for BA History, Politics and Economics. I wanted to know who else has or will apply for this course, and what do you expect? What subjects are you taking?

Good luck everyone!

I was considering applying to this but I decided not to because it's taught at the School of Slavonic & East European Studies rather than the Social and Historical Sciences faculty.

Okay, I understand. It depends on your interests I guess. I am actually very interested in Eastern European/Russian History. It is very understudied but very complex.

It is interesting but I studied it in AS and A2 History and honestly am kind of bored of it now

Hi! I'm applying too! I'm taking HL History, Economics and English Lit and SL Maths, Chemistry and Italian Lang and Lit (I'm Italian) at IB.
I've got a very high predicted grade but the thing that worries me the most is the fact that they say that you should "preferably have maths HL" I hope it isn't too much of a disadvantage that I don't have it...
How about you? what other unis are you applying to?

Hello, I've just sent off my application and have applied for HPE as well. This is my top choice, but I am very unlikely to gain entry as my predicted is only AAA in History, Politics and Business Studies.

They require AAA so you should be fine

I don't have maths and I haven't received an offer as yet so can't really tell you if it's worth it. Most people won't hear back for a few months

I just got an offer for the course.

A*A*A in Econ, Psychology and History at A-level, AAA in the three at AS in addition to an A in English Lit, and AABBBBCCD at IGCSE (including a C in Maths, though I did have extenuating circumstances). So I don't think it's too detrimental not to have Maths at AS/A-level. Kind of surprised to get the offer though-- a couple of weeks ago LSE rejected me for Economic History due to my IGCSE scores and a concern over my "numeracy and literacy".

My PS was mostly Econ/History focused, though I did mention extracurriculars which were related to politics and mentioned my interest in Yugoslav history in the statement. Good luck to all of you, seems like an awesome course.
