Was wondering what your opinions are on LSE and UCL for economics undergrad.
Which of the two is more maths based? (I take maths [predicted A*] but not further maths, will that be enough?) and does LSE still dominate with personal prestige even though UCL is currently above them in the subject tables?

For economics, LSE is more prestigious, they're arguably in the same league as oxbridge. UCL is just below alongside Warwick, but still a target uni for IB if that's your thing.
In terms of maths, the UCL course is probably more maths based than LSE, but you're still at a major disadvantage (from what I gather) if you apply to LSE without FM. Idk what other subjects you're taking, but many people end up applying for BSc Economics & Economic History if you don't do FM, as that only requires maths. You can always switch into the economics programme in the second year if you do well enough.
