    IGCSEs (or equivalent):
    AS Levels (or equivalent):

    Universities applied to: Oxford, LSE, UCL, KCL, QMUL
    IGCSEs (or equivalent): 7A*s, 2As (not Oxford impressive I know)
    AS Levels (or equivalent): N/A (IBDP)
    A2 Predicted (or equivalent): HL: 776 (History, English Lang&Lit, Chem), SL: 777 (Bio, Maths, Chinese B), TOK: A, EE: A, 44/45

    Has anyone heard back from QMUL? I know some people have gotten responses but they're all home students. I was wondering if any international applicants have gotten it yet? I'm getting so anxious

    Country: Singapore
    Course (because there are so many law-related courses): Straight law! (M100)
    Universities applied to: Oxford, LSE, KCL, Durham, Bristol
    IGCSEs (or equivalent): I took GCE O Levels in Singapore - 5A1s, 2A2s, 2B3s

    Have any of you heard from LSE after the initial assessment round? I'm getting worried because a friend of mine who applied for PPE already has the '8 week email'.

    Thank you so much! Your application is also incredibly strong The LNATs was pretty rough for me in terms of MCQ. I really don't know how well I did but pretty sure I did bad so sighhh. The essay was pretty alright since I prepped for a death penalty question the night before and surprisingly it came out! How was your LNAT?

    Thank you haha x
    I for one didn't complete the MCQ, last few questions were quite rushed! And for the essay, I got a death penalty question too, but I chose one on free speech. I panicked quite a lot so I had about 30 minutes to actually give the whole thing a thought and write it out, but at least I finished that :/ But honestly, I'm quite sure you did well, it's just your anxiousness speaking! One never knows with the LNAT :3

    I got an offer for Law at QMUL on the 31st of October. I've heard some people have heard back from KCL (one of the school's I'm aiming for) and it's kind of worrying. Out of curiosity, where did you apply?
