Hello, I’m thinking about applying for LE. Doing Econ, Business and History (A*,A*,A*)

I just wanted to know how you got internships at these firms? As I’ve looked but most were for university graduates or apprenticeships.
As there is no admissions assessment this year for Land Ec, will the importance of the other parts of the application, ie. PS and interview, shift?

What would you recommend doing in order to prepare for the interview stage? @zayaanmerchant

Hi there, do you remember what you were asked in the interview was it mainly economics or something else. Also, did they ask you to draw graphs or anything maths related in general and did they ask anything about your personal statement. Thanks

Hi there, What did they ask you in your interview and what did you put in the SAQ additional personal statement?
Thanks

Heya!
Just as an extra recommendation for interview questions, here is a link to some of the land economy questions you could use for practice :h:! I would also recommend finding some Oxbridge interviews on YT just to get an idea of how they are done!

I hope this helps!

Hey, I’m applying and haven’t studied economics before… do you think this will disadvantage me in the interview? Will they ask me geography/law related questions as well or just give me basic economics to accommodate? Thanks :smile:
What colleges have you guys applied to? Also, when will we hear back about interviews?
Note that OxbridgeMind has nothing to do with the Universities of either Oxford or Cambridge, and are a commercial enterprise designed to make as much money as possible from people on TSR - despite their folksy 'we're here to help' approach. I recommend not clicking on any links which will earn them money, and instead using the free, comprehensive resources available from both universities, and the combined experience of people on TSR who are happy to help you, rather than attempt to make money out of you. :smile:
I applied to St Johns, hbu ?
