Im a student in Sweden with the subjects; English A HL Economics HL History HL Math SL Swedish A SL ESS SL I'm very sure that I want to apply to an University in the UK, and study Economics. A school I'm very keen on is LSe (London School of Political and Economical Science). Courses of my interest; BSc Philosphy and Economics BSc Economics BSc Econometrics and Mathematical Economics They generally require International Baccalaureate: Diploma with 38 points including 7 6 6 at Higher level, including 7 in Mathematics Do they mean that it's a must to have a 7 in Math HL, or does a 7 in Math SL suffice? IF that's the case, is there any way to take an A exam (UK) in Maths? (My school doesn't offer Math HL)
So, my end goal is to be working in corporate law. Originally, I was planning to study a more academic-based undergrad degree in the UK (such as Oxford's PPE or UCL's ESPS), and then study law at graduate level in the USA, however the more I think about it, the more I'd rather do law in the UK and then do an MBA in the States. However, one thing that's worrying me is the fact that I have no work experience in the legal field. I've heard conflicting reports on this topic, but the general consensus seems to be legal work experience is highly desired for law applicants. Being a November 2012 session candidate, it's impossible for me to undertake legal work experience between now and my UCAS applications, so my question is: how much will this lack of legal work experience hurt my chances? For reference's sake, the universities I'd be looking to apply at, in no particular order, are as follows: - Oxbridge (yet to decide which - any opinions on their respective law programs would be appreciated) - Durham - LSE - UCL (hoping to make it into their LLB/JD dual degree - what are my odds like? How many of their students normally apply for this program?) - Either Warwick or Edinburgh (opinions?) Advice would be appreciated.
