  1. 🤣 1 - I stopped being a law student in 2013 when I finished my degree at the LSE. I went on to practise law at international law firms for 5 years as an English law solicitor. And yes, I was an international student. 2 - Your subject choices are fine. What matters are your predicted scores, nothing more, nothing less. Frankly, most UK unis only Look at your HL choices with any degree of seriousness, your SLs only exist to boost your overall score as far as they’re concerned. And your HL choices are fine. 3 - yes I took the LNAT back in the day when it was a 30-point MCQ test wi
  2. Hello fellow Indian! Okay, so this is a complicated response. Q1: Are you an Indian national? If you are an Indian national and will be studying as a foreign/international student in the UK, it is much more complicated. 1. There are no special rules for international students studying Law in the UK. Pre-2010, the immigration law was that if you finished your degree and were unable to secure employment while still in university, you had one extra year to bum around the UK doing job applications before your visa ended. 2. Post-2010, that law was gone, so now: you have to
  3. Your subject choices are fine. Don't worry about it. I had the exact same HL subject choices as you and a lower predicted score and I got into all my chosen unis except Oxford for Law. (But I didn't get into Oxford because I effed up the interview - the fact that I got to the interview stage is enough to tell me my subject choices were fine).
  4. To the best of my knowledge being "undeclared" is specifically a US university concept, for UK universities you tend to have to be very specific for the course you're applying for. Check university websites, but to my knowledge, you cannot be 'undeclared' in your engineering specification at UK universities unless it is specifically designed as a General Engineering course.
  5. Hey! Well, you need to be very clear about which course you want to apply to LSE for. I recommend reading this page: https://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/Undergraduate/Prospective-Students/How-to-Apply/Entry-Requirements Based on the above, to me it is only clear that for 3 Economics-specific courses, Mathematics: analysis and approaches is required. For the other courses listed, either Maths stream is preferred/desired/acceptable, but they do not say that SL is not acceptable. In my opinion: it would appear that for all the courses listed (and all the Economics or related
  6. No clue? I think it's just people on Twitter whining. Twitter =/= the world
  7. Ahh eagerness. Firstly, Global Politics? What is this trickery?! I wish I could have studied THAT when I was in the IB. As for Economics, don't bother. The Economics course is designed for people who have never studied it. I never did Economics until I started the IB. The entire first section of the course is literally called "Introduction to Economics". So you will learn everything from scratch. Like you, I too did some pre-reading before the IB - it was a total waste of time. When I started the iB, my teacher had his own way of teaching us and it was great. I ended up gettting a 7
  8. Research is one way to put it. The truth is, the ICSE students I saw struggle in the IB, and this is just my observation, struggled because they didn't really have opinions and could not bullsh*t their essays. There is a reason a lot of IB students say "IB so I BS". Once you understand the "formula" for how an IB subject's essay is meant to be written, it becomes a lot easier. Again, this applies more to English, History, Economics, etc.-type subjects. Usually, IB becomes easy if you have an opinion and have memorised enough facts and figures to argue for and against your position an
  9. Hello hello! Fellow Indian student turned IB student here. I did my 10th in the ICSE Board. Tbh, I found the IB by and large to be piss easy after the ICSE. Although that might have had more to do with my subject choices. I don't know if things would have been different had I done all science subjects and Maths at HL. I did English, History and Economics HL and ESS, Maths and French SL. French was definitely my hardest subject in the IB, the rest of them were super easy by and large. The tuition culture is just an Asian cultural thing at this point imo. I went to boarding after
  10. Hey! Bit late on a reply for this, but in the event you're still considering UK law, it greatly depends on where you ultimately see yourself setting down/ practising law? If you want to practise law in the UK, then attending a UK uni is a no-brainer. If you want to practise internationally, but eventually (maybe 5/10 years after graduating) go back to Korea, the UK might ber a good starting point because UK and US legal backgrounds are highly respected and useful for travelling and working around the world. But you would have to be very careful about the practice area you pick t
  11. She didn't. Not too many people I know who do a BMM end up doing Master's. They pretty much get into film work asap.
  12. Most people apply for uni in the UK before their final IB exams. UK unis then give them conditional offers on the basis of their predicted scores. If the conditions are met, these offers are then finalised and made unconditional. Therefore, if you're applying for UK unis before sitting your final IB exams, yes, your predicted scores matter a great, great deal.
  13. LSE is very strict with the minimum requirements. I girl I knew who applied for Economics had a 776 predicted at HL with an overall 40 point prediction. She ended up getting 42 overall but only a 775 at HL (the 5 in Maths HL) - she got rejected when applying for Accounting & Finance.
  14. As long as you meet the minimum requirement, your application will be considered. After that, it's based on the strength of your personal statement. Just don't write a US-style college essay, nothing will get you placed at the bottom of the heap faster.
  15. Don't bother with rankings. They're all subjective and very unreliable. Mostly university choices based on rankings are nonsense. Oxford and Cambridge are Tier 1 for Law, followed by UCL and LSE in Tier 2, then you have the other 'top unis' like KCL, Durham, etc., there's a lot of debate on which universities are 'prestigious' enough to be in the Tier 3 category, and so on and so forth. But honestly, none of it matters. Think more about what you want to do after you finish your law degree. Do you want to be a solicitor in a law firm? Pick a law firm you like and look up the linkedin
