Dear London School of Economics,
I am requesting information about 2nd year entry into the economic history department at LSE at an undergraduate level.
1. I would like to know how many people applied for direct second year entry in the past 5 application cycles for the courses BSc Economic History, BSc Economics and Economic History and BSc Economic History with Economics and how many of these applicants were accepted.
2. I would also like to know the high school grades of accepted applicants (those who took A levels and IB).
Thank you for your email. As you will appreciate, information requests
place additional demands on the School in terms of costs and staff time.
At present we are having to prioritise our finite resources in order to
meet the unprecedented challenges we are facing during the Coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic. As such, we need to advise you that while we will
continue to process individual requests, you may experience some delay in
our response during the current pandemic.
Further to your recent FoI request, the Schools response is provided
