    Hi, I'm applied for LSE, Oxford, Durham, Bristol and KCL. Was wondering if any of you have gotten the email saying that they'll now be comparing you to the rest of the applicants?

    I've gotten the initial assessment email (on Monday), but so far, nothing else. However, a friend of mine who applied for PPE in LSE has gotten the '8 week email' already.

    So was just wondering if any of you have gotten it?

    You receive the 8-week email once you've passed the initial assessment. The initial assessment checks that your grades and personal statement are a high enough standard for LSE (most people pass this stage). Then you get put into the 8-week further assessment where your grades and statement are compared to other candidates, on this basis you are then given an offer/rejection.

    You can be in the initial assessment for up to 2 weeks. LSE usually updates you on a Monday, so either this Monday or next you will know. It's very unlikely you won't pass the initial assessment anyway.

    Okay. Thank you! I sent my application on the 15th and still no news except for the acknowledgement. Should I be worried??

    LSE updates your applications on a Monday and gives out offers/rejections on Thursday or Friday. So you'll probably hear this Monday.

    Oh. Alright. But their website says 2-3 weeks so I guess i just have a couple of days to not worry.
    Also, I had a doubt. A lot of people have already received the initial assessment email. Is this a sign that they may not be considering me for further assessment or is there any order in which they consider??

    Might be that they have a lot of people with A*AA predictions (minimum for the course) applying so may take you longer. I applied on 27th Sept, got the initial assessment on 3rd and further assessment on 6th with achieved A*A*A grades but it also may be because that I submitted my application a lot earlier so maybe there were less applications to look at

    I applied on the 10th and got nothing so far
    My predicted was 42/45 with 766 at HL for the IB
    The requirement for the course was 38 with 766 at HL
    Should I be worried right now about not receiving anything other than the acknowledgement?
