Dear all,

I'm a third year studying PPE (4-year course) at the LSE. My grades are generally good and I'm on track to get a first overall. I'm looking into applying for a master in Economics at Oxbridge & LSE next year. However, I've failed my Maths module in first year (only pure Maths module of my degree) and had to retake it. I failed it with 53 (25% of grade) and 30 in the original exams, and got a 71 when I retook the second exam. So as the overall result is capped, I have a 40 in the course. How badly will this impact my application?

Probably not at all, so long as there is evidence of more recent, decent maths grades

So the degree doesn't have any other pure Maths modules. I had Stats in second year (1:1) and am taking the more difficult out of two econometrics courses this year. That's what worries me a bit. This is the only 'MA' module on my transcript.
