    LSE's website says:

    "The Government (Politics/IR) [admission] selectors are looking for academic students with a genuine interest in and enthusiasm for the social and political sciences. There is no one 'ideal' subject combination, however, as with all degree programmes at LSE, at least two traditional academic subjects are preferred. Common sixth form subject choices include Government and Politics; History; English; Economics; Sociology; Philosophy, Languages and Mathematics."


    List of common traditional academic/"generally preferred" subjects:
    • Ancient History
    • Biology
    • Classical Civilisation
    • Chemistry
    • Computing
    • Economics
    • English (English Language, English Literature and English Language and Literature)
