    Hi everyone

    I'm looking to apply to Oxford, LSE, UCL, Bath and Warwick for Economics.

    I studied maths, physics, chemistry and economics at AS level, averaged 93% on maths, 91% on physics, 91% chemistry (raw marks). I got 4 As therefore.

    I'm predicted 3A* for A level in Maths, physics and economics. Paired with a strong personal statement, and achieving a gold certificate in the senior maths challenge, do you think I'd stand a good chance of getting in to the above mentioned universities without further maths?

    FM is offered at my school but i only decided on economics at the end of year 12 so it was too late to pick up.

    I got 8A*, A and B at GCSE.

    Thanks

    none of those universities require further maths, you'll be fine.

    Hi there. Lse say on their website that they regard FM as desirable as a fourth A level. Many schools don't offer FM so it is never officially required.

    To be honest, I think LSE is a bit of a long shot. Everyone I’ve met here doing economics did further maths A-level, and they say it’s an unwritten rule that you have to have it. A lot of them are struggling with the work anyway, and say that there’s no way someone who didn’t do FM would be able to cope.
