LSE Government & Economics and Economics & Philopshy Admission Statistics

The request was successful.

Dear London School of Economics,

Under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I kindly
request some data from you regarding your Undergraduate Government & Economics and Economics & Philosophy applications.

1) The mean number of A*s at GCSE for students made offers to
study Government & Economics and/or Economics & Philosophy at LSE for the 2014 cycle (and any other cycles if possible)

2) The mean number of A*s at A-Level for students made offers to
study Government & Economics and/or Economics & Philosophy at LSE for the 2014 cycle (and any other cycles if possible)

3) The amount of offers given relative to the amount of applicants
for Government & Economics and/or Economics & Philosophy at LSE for the 2014(and any other cycles if possible)

If possible could I get a reply before 30th September, I realise
this is short notice, so I would understand if I got a reply where
not all of my data requests were made (Number 1 and 3 are the ones
I'm most interested in and I would be happy with data from either course).

Thank you in advance

Yours faithfully,

R Misra
