LSE Bsc Data Science and UMSWatch
I am overall an A student (also taking Further Maths) with predicted grades of A*A*AA, and Data Science course requirement is AAA (A in Mathematics)
In any case, could anyone advice me on my chances if I get the high 90s to 100 for P1 P2 P3 S1, but get a 75 UMS for M1? I would say my personal statement as relatively okay. It would be great if someone could help or give some advice
All the best!
Hey! Soo, if you're applying to LSE for Data Science, might I ask where else you're looking to apply? Since there are very few other universities offering Data Science and therefore it's important that your personal statement has a strong focus on data science. Secondly, as @compost mentioned, UK students will not have undertaken AS Examinations. Therefore, they will not really base anything off of the UMS scores at this point. However, please pay attention to part 1, of my answer and if you're really applying because the course is new so for less competition but with a statement directed at another subject they'd sniff it out.
All the best!
Hello! Thanks for your reply. I will be applying for Bsc Data Science at Warwick, LSE, Exeter, Bath and Maths and stats science for UCL. My PS will be directed at only Data Science. Do you think I stand a chance? As I'm an international student, LSE has asked my seniors to submit their UMS marks in January when applications close. (This is because we take a modular system). I had a very bad day for M1 and I think I might get a B or C. But I think All my pure papers can attain 100 UMS, along with S1 at 95 UMS and above. My IGCSEs are 9 A*s and 1A.
do you guys think it'd still be worth applying if I have already achieved AAA (maths computer science and physics)? I did the autumn exams for computer science and maths just recently, so best case scenario I would have A*A*A in which case I would definitely try and apply, but if things dont go to plan, would it still be worth applying since I met the requirements, although LSE is very competitive in some subjects?
