LSE Law Department IELTS 2013-2014


peterTH

Hey, everyone,

I received a conditional offer from LSE. It states that I have to get the over IELTS band at 7.5 with at least writing 7.0 and listening 7.0 Currently, I have good scores on the three bands except the writing one that I got 6.5

Have you had any idea or samples from the past that this kind of score is potentially acceptable by the law department at LSE? or Should I submit the score to them first or should it be best that I take another one before.

My main anxiety is that the English pre-sessional course which I aim to take is to be registered within May 2013. So I am a bit worry that, even if I retake, I would still not be able to get the required score in time.

Thanks in advance for your advice and any response may be.

Hello,

I guess you can try and submit the score that you have achieved. As far as I know, LSE won't accept it though.
They are strict about the language requirement.

Also, differently from UCL and KCL, LSE pre sessional does not cover the IELTS.

In conclusion, you have no choice but taking the IELTS again.

Best of Luck :-)

Thanks for MyTheGap,

Hey, Johnly, I decided to take new IELTS. Never ask for a conditional waiver as my friends there told me if u asked them in writing u will be reject

All that we can do is only submitting the score to them. IF they are ok with ur score, they will give an unconditional offer to you by themselves but they never grant if you asked.

Just try to retake and do the best you can do. You can always submit new score to them until August I think.

If you have alternative news, please let me kno.

It is mainly common knowledge.
If you check the website it is written exactly what I said. The pre sessional doesn t cover the IELTS meaning that, even if you attend it, you MUST take the IELTS. This is not the case for KCL and UCL where you can just pay the 2600 pound of pre sessional and you re basically in.

Condition Waiver is a very rare exception as far as I know and not reaching the score they request is not enough to have it granted.

In my case, my first choice at LSE was Msc Regulation (for which I have been rejected). LSE sent me an offer for the LLM in Banking and Financial Regulation (which was my second choice).

Anyway I will enrol to Queen Mary (LLM in Economic Regulation).

PeterTH did you contact with LSE and if yes what did they tell you?Did anyone know for this?
"However, it's possible to meet the English language requirement with a 'conjunction of scores'. Meaning: if you take the IELTS once more and get the score required in the writing, but this time around you fail to get the score in, let's say, the listening section, I know of people who've been admitted on this basis, taking into account that put it all together, their score meets the English language requirement."

I can't confirm it either for IELTS .I just saw it at another issue and I'm wondering if it's true.
