MSc Development economics, chances? watch

    • Thread Starter


    I am a 3rd year undergrad students at a UK University, studying BSc. Economics. I was on track for a first for 2nd year, before I messed the summer exam (due to commitments in some societies). So I got 2.2. My 2nd year only counts for 25%. So there is a high chance for me to get a first or at least upper second. My extracurriculars also reflects my interest in the area of development economics.

    Now, I'd like to apply for a master in development economics. I'm looking at a broad range, LSE/Ox, UCL, Sussex, Manchester and Notts.

    Is there any chance for me for the LSE/Ox? Oxford has other requirements such as written piece of works, or GRE, which could provide me more room to prove myself.

    Please give me suggestions on the chances, and whether my uni choices are the right one?

    Thank you!
