Mathematics in Economics at LSE vs UCL

    • Thread Starter

    Hello everyone,
    I am currently doing PPE at UCL but thinking about a 2nd year transfer at LSE in Government and Economics. Although LSE is certainly better in Economics, UCL PPE is very mathematical if you choose the right module/stream i.e: they have a Quantitative Methods Stream where you do coding, statistics and big data analysis which doesn't appear in the Lse Gov and Econ course structure.
    Plus for PPE at UCL the requirements are A*AA (A* in mathematics) while for Gov and Econ at LSE the requirements are AAA (A in Maths)
    Do you still think Lse is worth it as I give a lot of importance to mathematics?
    Many thanks
