Dear London School of Economics,

For the program BSc Economic History, what percent of applicants are successful and also what percent of successful applicants studied A-Level Mathematics.

For the following programs:
- BSc Accounting and Finance, AAA including A in Mathematics
- BSc Economics, A*AA including A* in Mathematics
- BSc Economics and Economic History, AAB including A in Mathematics
- BSc Finance, A*AA including A* in Mathematics
- BSc Philosophy, Politics and Economics, A*AA with A* in Mathematics

What percent of applicants were successful and also what percent of successful applicants studied A-Level Further Mathematics?

For both, the data of the most recent year that can be provided would be most helpful.

Thank you

GLPD.Info.Rights, London School of Economics

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.

Dear Stanley,

I have had a request for clarification from colleagues about the following:

Is this for Home, Overseas or all students?
Does 'successful' mean obtaining an offer or registering on the programme?

The answer to the second question will decide the most recent dataset we can use (if offers, this year, if registrations, last year).

Can you please confirm on these points? Once we have received your clarification we will be able to further process your request.

Regards,
Rachael Maguire
Information and Records Manager
London School of Economics
