    Those coming from schools based in the US (high school or Uni) who have also studied at LSE (or UK in general)- was the transition to the minimal teaching/one exam style rough? Was it difficult to do well, or were you able to adjust quickly?

    (Im a mature undergraduate applicant to a non-quantitative subject)

    thanks!

    Please note LSE trialed mid year exams this year which have a 25-50% weighting on the final mark but not for all departments. I know math , stats and economics first year students had exams but some students had no exams.

    Google "Lent Term Week 0 Exams" for more details

    Maybe better to ask your question in the TSR International Lounge > USA section.
