Bsc Econ. TMUA vs Further Math.

I am taking Math, Econ and Psychology 3 A-Level, planning to apply Bsc Econ, eg LSE and Warwick. Yes, im a non-Further Math student. But will a good TMUA score make me stand a chance? with a A*A*A*

Sadly no is the answer. Because BSc Economics at LSE has so many applicants with 3 A star grades predicted that they look favorably on the applicants offering Further Maths.

You still require A-Level Further Maths or at least AS-Level Further Maths. Since the LSE BSc Economics is highly mathematical and progress is made rapidly, therefore an A star or A in Further Maths would boost your application.

So why not teach yourself?

I can send you the .zip file on my Microsoft OneDrive to download. It has all the eBooks and model answers to the eBooks.

You should get an A grade comfortably. A star requires a lot of practice. But I will have the past papers for all boards on my OneDrive by the summer. 🙂

Could I also get access to this if I were to DM?

If so, would love for you to specify which exam board. Thank you!

How about strengthining your application with a Microbachelors from the LSE
https://www.edx.org/bachelors/microbachelors/lse-mathematics-and-statistics-fundamentals

I seem to recall it gives automatic admission to their online program. I doubt it will hurt for campus admission. Also they have ways of transferring from online to on campus. It cant hurt. And self studying FM cant hurt either.

Despite the jokes made in yes minister the LSE is one of the worlds top schools - no shame in not getting admission.

Looks good but again I don't think anything you pay for sets you out, it wouldn't be fair to compare students who couldn't afford it otherwise. Could exacerbate a good application, but you're still gambling £710 on if you get rejected or accepted.
