    Hi!

    I am currently pursuing BA (Hons) Accounting with Economics in an ex-poly Uni. I'm planning to apply to LSE for their MSc Economics and Management course. I am working my way for a first but is wondering if that alone is enough?

    Thanks for the reply! As mentioned, I am working to get a first but MSc Economics in LSE requires not only a first but also a background in either calculus, statistics or linear algebra. Since my course is a BA course, it's leaning more towards the theoretical side of Economics. As far as I know, I won't be taking any modules related to those three Mathematics modules mentioned above. That's why I feel like getting a first in BA Accounting with Economics won't be enough.

    I have just googled it, and the requirements are a two one, not a first, as i thought. This is standard practice.

    See below:
    http://www.lse.ac.uk/study/graduate/...ents/home.aspx

    Entry requirements

    Each level of graduate study (diploma, master's, MPhil/PhD) has particular minimum entry requirements. These consist of:
    • your degree(s)
    • your proficiency in the English language....

    A first or upper second class honours (2:1) degree from a UK university or a non-UK equivalent in a subject appropriate to the programme to be followed.

    Minimum entry requirement: One year – first class honours with concentration on economics and quantitative subjects and at least a year of university level mathematics (both calculus and linear algebra) and statistics. Two year – a first class honours degree with two semesters of university-level calculus or equivalent (see entry requirements)

    This is their requirement for MSc Economics and it is from their website.

    Sorry if I did not make myself clear. English isn't my first language and I often have a hard time delivering what I actually want to say. I understand that I need a 2:1 or above, but it's the part "and at least a year of university level mathematics (both calculus and linear algebra) and statistics" that I'm curious of. Thanks for your replies!
