Hey guys,

I just recently got an offer for BMS from LSE, and I was wondering whether I should have chosen Actuarial Science or BMS? Also I got an offer for MMORSE and i was wondering which one is better BMS or MMORSE :confused: :confused: :confused:

Really depends on your preference. For example, if you want to become an actuary, maybe a degree in Acturial Science would be better, but in terms of course content, it is quite similar. IMO, BMS> MMORSE

Is that a cross between a watch and an actuary?

I prefer warwick's MORSE. Though if you want LSE 's name on ur CV go for BMS/ACT.
You can transfer from BMS to ACT with no problem.

If i get a degree in Actuary will i still be able to diverge into other jobs in the business world or do i have to become an actuary?i think this is an advantage of BMS as you have a variety of opportunites in the job world.

Actuarial actually to do with long-term problems such as evaluating and forecasting, so I would think u can diverge to similar jobs. I am almost certain u can work in an investment field, a banking field, or accountancy/actuary.

However, its continuingly known that employers in these fields actually prefer straight Economics or straight maths, coz u have wider range of knowledge? I been worried about these too..

In my opinion...I would prefer MMORSE though, for these reasons:
1) Warwick also has international reputations (not as high as LSE but still...)
2) its a 4 yrs master course, and warwick seems have grade inflations (so I've heard)
3) cost of living in London is much higher,
4) MMORSE u get to have broader knowledge, so if u are stuck on something u dun HAVE to continue as much. They give u more options within the subj.

~~ so if I get MMORSE offer, I go for MMORSE for firm and Actuarial for insurance

i dont think it really matters coz u can switch from BMS to Actuarial Science in second year. i also applied to BMS and i intended to switch to actuarial science in second year, but they rejected me for BMS(which is ironic coz i had actually applied for BMS coz i heard its easier to get into), but they asked me if i would like to be considered for actuarial science.
if u really want to be an actuary then you should go for BMS coz u get maximum of 9 exemptions but for warwick's MMORSE u will be able to get maximum 7 exemptions after 4 years, but u'll have wider choice. btw congrats for the offer, im still waiting for a reply from lse :hmpf:

i got unconditional coz i have already done a levels, and now i am taking a gap year bcoz of the age thing (well, not exactly, im doing F.Maths). and btw munna is only my nickname, which means a baby in urdu, coz thats what i was called in my school, all the others were older than me . my real name is Ali, just didnt feel like putting it in my profile.
congrats on lse offer, im still wondering y u want to put it as ur insurance, u can do BMS if u want more options.

Muna u said if you want to become an actuary you should do BMS becuase you get 9 exemptions. Don't you get exemptions when you do the Actaury at Lse?

sorry my mistake. i meant that he could switch to actuarial science in second year after first year in bms, and thus get exemptions.

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the advice, aparently getting into BMS is easier than actuarial Science at LSE cuz my friend applied for ACT and a conditional offer of AAA (i think including F. Maths) and I got a conditional Offer for BMS of AB (with an A in mathematics and a B in physics) ??? weird anyways thanks for all the replies, and munna ur a genius man, im pakistani too but im not that smart hehe (btw wat was ur fifth university?).

Most people have adviced me to go to Warwick and do MMORSE, cuz living in London is very hectic and expensive and they said that i could always do a masters from LSE in economics or finance if I've done MMORSE, do u guys think thats true?

I think that is true it some ways...However I think LSE prefer people applying postgrad courses to have a first class in first degree or at least related work experience for a suitable length of time. ie. Its quite hard to get into master courses at LSE...

But that is true even if u did study at LSE for Undergrad courses...My brother did Accounting and Finance in LSE, at his 3rd year he asked tutors about master courses, but the school strongly adviced him to go out and work for at least 2-3 yrs... My brother didn't take the advice, went to a crap uni to do master instead, and now really regretted it. He applied for jobs and didn't bother write about the master course he done in the CV!

But doing MMORSE will gain u a master anyway? thats the reason I am inclined to do MMORSE rather than N321 if I get an offer. I plan to work after graduated, and then hopefully do a MBA in LSE or LBS...(Thats just abit of day dreaming for me :aetsch: )
