Nah, I don't think LSE even cares about the TMUA for pure Economics, since the course is offered by Dept of Economics and not Dept of Maths. I've seen so many people with a score of 3.0 still get an offer for econ from LSE, and not many people even submit their TMUA score.

Also in all the practice papers I was doing, I wasn't managing to finish in time, so I would've messed up in the real exam too.

Also Applying for Bsc Econ

My GCSE’s: 9999999988 but a B in AS FSMQ:s-smilie:


Predicted Grades: A*A*A*A*A* in Maths, Further Maths, Economics, Chemistry, and EPQ


B in FSMQ pretty much over before it started but will try anyway. Not doing the TMUA as its the same day as TSA.

Why will the B in FSMQ mean it's over before it started??

They need proof you've always been competent at maths. Makes me a less competitive applicant than anyone who's had consistent success. Hence the 1000 others that got the A go ahead

I've got an A in FSMQ tbf but didn't think it was that important. You're right tbf it can show a long standing track record of maths, but surely there's not 1000 other applicants who did FSMQ.
For example, only 18 people in our school were even allowed to take the FSMQ.
I also know a few applicants who are applying for LSE Econ with a C in FSMQ, I wouldn't say a B in FSMQ will be the end all, since it's an additional qualification and B is still a good grade with A being the max grade. With a strong PS, you're defo in a strong position for an offer imo since you already have the grades.
