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!!
Yea thats true im sure youll get an offer from UCL. Although I wouldn't be too bothered as LSE is my first choice. So I'm scaredddd

Hi all! Thought I’d make a thread for this as it appears previous years have done so.

If you’ve applied to LSE for BSc Economics in 2021, feel free to drop your:
- Subjects + Predicted Grades
- GCSEs
- Other Unis Applied To + Decisions
- Home or International?

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
Oh, that's not true. I have a friend who applied with A*A*A* predicted at A Level, with an already achieved A* for another A Level as well as an A for an AS. She has not received an offer from Warwick yet. I highly doubt that Warwick has actually gone out to say that if you have "at least 3A* predictions you're basically guaranteed an offer." The prospectus which they send repeatedly elaborates the need to have a good PS as competition at the school is really high. Perhaps different universities look for different things in PS, I suppose if yours was more maths-based then UCL might prefer it.

I'm from india (applying to lse, ucl, warwick, bristol, Manchester) my predicted are 95+ in each subject, I think that translates to A* in each? my subjects are Mathematics, Economics, English, Accounting, Business Studies. my concern is that 2 of my subjects are not preferred in lse (first choice) so I don't have high expectations from there. I've had a stellar record for my entire academic career and though I've done a lot of competitions and such, none of them are econ related.

where do i stand a chance of getting accepted? i am yet to submit my application, so my personal statement will not be the best but I've been working on it for quite some time

ps is animal spirits or doughnut economics good books to mention in your ps?

it depends if you had the choice to do subjects like further maths/history/sciences or any of the other subjects that LSE really like. Because from what I have heard, econ, accounting and business are all very similar according to LSE. If your school only offers that combination, it's best to write that in your reference so LSE know you couldn't have done another combo.

they're both good books to mention

LSE might reject you if you’re looking for a straight econ course. That’s because you have business econ which is considered as too narrow. Not only that but accountancy is a non preferred subject. You also do not have FM. You can always try but your chances will be slim. As for your other university choices it will be difficult to say.

Do you recon it matters what the grade for Further maths is if that's your 4th subject?
