    I'm struggling to decide whether shd I apply for just maths and econ or both maths and econ AND bms in LSE. I've read that it is not wise to apply for 2 different courses as it is hard to write your ps, but in my case is it fine to do so?
    Will it increase my chance to get into lse? I don't really mind which courses of the above I'm doing as long as I'm in LSE.
    Academic info:
    As: 5A(maths fmaths economics physics Chinese)
    Achieved A* in a2 maths in yr 12
    Predicted grades: 2A* 3A ( same order as above)
    Any advices would be fantastic and appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    "We advise students to be cautious as those applying to more than one programme at LSE may find it difficult to effectively demonstrate their academic interest in the limited amount of space available on UCAS. You should also note that applying to more than one programme does not increase the likelihood of your being made an offer."

    It's not a good idea tbh. It doesn't increase your chances and at the same time makes it more difficult for you to get the crucial PS focus that LSE are looking for.
