    Hi everybody, I couldn't find a thread specifically for this so thought it would be a good idea so we could get to know our peers before we start off! Anybody else on this course?

    Me and 1 person from my school applied to LSE for Actuarial Science and we both haven't got a reply yet.

    It's the only university I'm still waiting for. I applied on the 25th of November.

    GCSE's are 7A* 2A 1B
    I got 4A's (Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chinese) and a B (Chemistry, 1 UMS off an A) at AS.
    A2 predictions are A*A*A*A (A* in Maths, Further Maths, Chinese and A in Physics)

    I'm pretty sure they'll exclude Chinese anyway haha, but the wait is killing me

    A friend of mine applied too and he was saying that LSE sent an email out saying the responses are going to be delayed due to some circumstances. But I wouldn't worry, with those grades you're bound to get in! The Chinese will probably come in handy at LSE haha.

    Applied on the 27th November still no offer. Unsure if I'll receive an offer as my PS wasn't very engineered to actuarial science (applied for economics at all my other uni choices)

    I've gotten all 5 so I will have to decide between UCL and LSE. LSE has lower requirements though...
