Hi!

I hold an unconditional offer and have several questions about the current situation. I understood from the website that all lectures will be given online in the first term (until december). Is there a chance that whole year's lectures will be online? I would be very happy if anyone has an answer to this question... Also does that mean we will not have any courses with other students on campus?

Secondly, do we have a whatsapp or facebook group?
Thank you!

Hi! As I understand, the first trimester will have in-session classes (I hope that's how you say it), and those clases will be available online for students, such as me, that have traveling bans in place. I am also worried about the possibility of online lectures for the rest of the year, as I don't think it'll be worth the fees. Maybe we should ask them on Wednesday. 

And yes!! Please let us know if there's a whatsapp group!

Hi everyone and congrats, 
I got a conditional offer for LSE however I have some questions I can't find the answers for. 
They require "proof of qualification" however, I have already submitted them when I applied, does anyone know what they want exactly? 
Due to the COVID situation, what kind of online (at home) test do they accept to meet the English requirements? 

Hi, they now require that you send certified copies/originals of the documents of which you previously submitted mere scans (deg. certificate, transcript) - check the Graduate Application Tracker, at the bottom of the webpage. However, due to the pandemic, offer holders were instructed the following via e-mail (surely it's somewhere on the website too): 
"As an unconditional offer holder, you need only be concerned with providing official proof of documents already supplied. Please remember that we are currently unable to receive or process paper documents. The best way for you to meet our requirements is for you to either:

Share your document with us via an online verification service, such as Digitary, CHESICC (for degrees studied in P.R. China) or eScrip-Safe.Send a secure, digitally signed PDF.Share your test scores with us by supplying your TRF number (IELTS) or appointment number (TOEFL, GMAT, GRE).Ask your institution/referee to email your documents to us directly at graduate.documents@lse.ac.uk".
Thanks :)

Hello,



I hold a conditional offer and I have another question about the requirements.


I took the IELTS Indicator (which is now allowed according to the website) and obtained the required scores. However, I do not know how to submit my results..



There is no TRF issued with the IELTS Indicator so I cannot send it to the LSE. I have contacted the British Council which said that the results could only be seen online by the School..



Thus, I have sent an e-mail to the LSE (throught the enquiry portail), with a copy of the British Council’s email, containing my results and my IELTS Indicator ID, but I have obtained no reply so far.. (I sent it at the end of June).







Can someone help me ? I am kind of lost on what to do


next..

Hi! I am so glad to finally have found someone with the same problem. I have also taken the IELTS Indicator and I haven't received any answer from LSE! I have written them several times as well as I have tried to call them. Always unsuccessful. Moreover, my writing is only 6.5, so I am just not sure if this is sufficient.

I think I might have found the answer. I have finally reached someone at the British Council who gave me an answer. They have to send you a link (I will send it to you by mp) an then you can indicate the LSE as your institution. I have not heard from the LSE yet but it seems to be the right procedure.. For the score on the writing part, I don't know. However, everyone have always said to me to try and see if they accept it, even if the scores are below..

Hi,  Still me.. Has someone taken the assessment by the LSE's Language Center they require for those who took an at-home test ? If so, how hard is it ?  I am talking about that : "A number of providers are now offering at-home tests which we will accept alongside an assessment by LSE's Language Centre which is carried out online using Moodle (LSE's virtual learning environment) and Zoom".     I have still not heard from them even though I sent my IELTS Indicator results, using the form, more than one month ago (+ I also sent them via the British Council a couple days ago). I am getting anxious because of it (I Don't know when the deadline is) so I am thinking it would be easier to simply re-take the IELTS in a center…

hi! Sorry, regarding your english test, how did you submit it? I was dumb enough to request a waiver around may, and I submitted it through the waiver form, and they never replied! As I was growing anxious, I resubmitted it through the How Do I...? Form around mid-june, and I got my unconditional offer the first week of August. Soon after that, I got my Cas! (Not that I can do much with it, cause the embassy is closed, but yayyy)

Hi!

I am a final year LLB student willing to apply to LSE LLM for 2021-2.
I was just wondering whether LSE asks for different grades as part of the conditional offer based on the university's ranking. (like asking a 2:1 for top rank unis while asking a 1st for low ranking unis)
I am quite worried of whether coming from a low ranking university might pull up the grades I need for conditional offer.

Thank you very much!

Yes, for UK unis there’s some minor adjustment for how selective the UG programme is, eg Oxbridge offers will typically have lower conditions than, say, Reading ones. What’s your uni and grade avg?

Hi guys, in the Statement of Academic Purpose. how would indicating a specialist area affect chances of getting in? Do they categorise applications based on the specialist area indicated / are there specialist areas that admit less people? Would it be easier to just put a general LLM? Sorry for the questions, what did you guys indicate in your statement of academic purpose - general or specialist areas? :) 

Thank you!

Honestly, I think you should just display your genuine interests and do not strategize too much. But obviously I do not know, if there are different chances for different specializations. Good luck!
