Congrats on the UCL offer! May I ask - does your school offer FM & did you just choose not to take it? I’m yet to receive an offer from UCL (though I’ve got Warwick) which is making me super scared

Thanks! And congrats on your offer too. And no my school didn't offer FM at the time I chose my A levels, but I did respond to LSE's survey accordingly. Either way I am happy with my options so far but yes it's so scary waiting.
- A levels: Economics, Maths, Further Maths (3 A*s having been 2 A*s and A in Further Maths on results day) + A* 50/50 on EPQ
- GCSEs: 12 A*s (5 9s, 6 A*s and A^ in FM)
- Other unis: Cambridge (Selwyn), Durham (St Mary's) (unconditional offer), UCL (unconditional offer)
- Home student


Does anyone know if anyone has heard from LSE yet for Economics? Last year the first batch was on 8th December but I've not seen any this year yet. That said, UCL normally gives out their first offers for Economics in November but this year the first batch (which seemed fairly big tbf considering UCL has only a 38% offer rate for Econ) was on the 2nd December.

I know Cambridge has had over 1500 applicants for its 156 spaces this year (up 30% on two years ago) and I suppose LSE will have seen a similar increase. Since LSE has a 17% offer rate and 8% acceptance for Econ in previous years I guess it will have to be thinking carefully about decisions anyway.

Hey, I am applying for BSc Economics 2021!
- A levels: Maths, Further Maths, Economics, History; Predicted A*A*A*A
- GCSEs: A*A*A*A*A*AAB (I did International GCSE, so GCSE equivalent would be 99999887)
- Other unis: UCL, Warwick, Manchester (conditional offer)
- International student currently doing A-Level in UK

I haven't heard from UCL, Warwick or LSE yet. I qualify as International student currently doing A-Level in UK. Will they give offers to UK citizens first and then to International applicants? I am also worried that they would look into personal statement and mine was decent, I won't say it was one of the best.

I'm sure there's no difference in when they decide on home/international students. It seems really random overall haha. Also about your PS, yes it's a key part of your application, but don't worry too much, your stats are amazing and you took a good step applying to LSE!

When did you apply? Warwick did home students first, then did internationals who had applied in Sept by the looks of it. My friend who is an international who applied in Oct got his offer a month after me (an international who applied in Sept)

yea that's weird I've heard from UCL but nothing from Warwick yet my grades were not as good as yours. However, UCL and LSE are very dependent on your personal statement whereas Warwick has said that you have at least 3A* predictions you're basically guaranteed an offer

its definitely an odd one. im hoping for UCL as i'd much rather go there than Warwick; i'm fairly confident w/ my PS though it was more macro-based than mathematical, which is what UCL apparently likes. i'm sure you'll get Warwick!! :smile:
