    Hi!

    I'm from Australia and looking to study Actuarial Science in the UK. I'm a bit confused as to where to apply, as I've read a bit online and I'm leaning towards LSE and City being my top preferences. I've emailed City and they said a 96 ATAR (top 4% academically) and 18/20 (A) for specialist maths is needed, which hopefully should be fine. Meanwhile, LSE states on their website that I'd need at least a 98 ATAR (top 2% academically, not sure what for spec maths).
    Coming from an international view, I think LSE would be better, so I'm leaning towards LSE (if I can get in!), but I've read that City has a bette Actuarial program.

    What's the view on these universities/others, how hard is it to get into LSE/city, and how much do they look at your personal statement/what do I write about?!

    Thanks!
