What offers has anyone received from Kings College London and what do people think of the university? I recently got an offer for Maths and Statistics with grades BAA* b in english a in further maths and a* in maths. What is the feel at the uni?

I received an A*AA offer and scholarship last year but rejected it (on a gap year now). It's a well respected university in the context of the UK and globally but it's often overshadowed by LSE, UCL and Imperial, and in a lot of fields quite significantly overshadowed. But it is a good uni for sure probably places like 10th or 11th best in the UK. It's a more relaxed uni than the other's in London I mentioned, which can be nice, although I'm quite a driven person and like similarly minded people so I want to go to LSE (which is just over the road to King's ).

You should visit King's!

What made you decide to take a gap year? What course did you apply for? I am also applying to the other unis you mentioned, although I am not sure even with AA*B that my grades will be high enough. What do you think my chances are of getting into LSE? I would also really like to go there. I should visit Kings.

I was previously doing law but discovered I find it very dull and I wanted a year out anyway. I have re-applied to politics, economics and history based courses. If the course you apply for at LSE is AAA then your A*AB is equivalent to this. LSE heavily relies on your personal statement, it's the make or break factor so make sure it's good if you apply

What do you mean by overshadowed? I don't want to go there if there's a better uni down the road. It would make me feel inferior.

Imperial in known as better for science and LSE is known as better for social sciences/humanities. And UCL is seen as essentially all round better.

But London is massive remember and Kings is 4th best in London out of a Lot of universities it’s still better than some other good ones in London (QMUL, SOAS). And it’s still like 10th in the UK.
Although yes LSE/UCL/ICL students do take the mick out of kings, but it’s just a bit of fun.
