    Hi, I am thinking of applying LSE straight economics and I know they really care about Maths/Further Maths UMS. Do you think those UMS would make my application unsuccessful? Any comments are appreciated.

    How can they predict you A* with such low UMS?

    Anyway it's gonna be tough since they look at UMS and I suspect a lot of people will have 90+ UMS average. A good PS can make for it.

    I have dropped further Maths this year and My overall grade for further maths last year was an A.

    Im guessing they switched D1/M1 around with S1. So that's going to be detrimental to your maths avg which LSE will see.

    You're still at a considerable disadvantage considering the competition (more competitive than cambridge econ). However it's still worth applying as you're in the running.
