Several programmes require GRE (Graduate Record Examination) or GMAT (Graduate Management Admissions Test) scores. The requirement is indicated in the 'key facts' box at the start of each programme entry.
If you are applying for one of these programmes, you should complete all sections of the test. Your score should be less than five years old on 1 October 2015.
You should arrange for an official certificate of your score to be sent to LSE from the Educational Testing Service (ETS) as well as entering your scores in the relevant section of the application form. The LSE institution code for the GRE is 0972; no department code is required as the scores are processed centrally. The LSE institution code for the GMAT is HMT 86-56. For more information about the tests, please see www.gre.org or www.mba.com or contact ETS, Box 6000, Princeton NJ 08541, USA. Tel: +1 609 921 9000, or see www.ets.org
Some programmes exempt graduates of UK universities from taking the test. This is restricted to people who have completed their entire three year UK Bachelor's degree in a relevant subject. Those who have completed an undergraduate degree outside the UK but possess a UK postgraduate qualification do need to complete the test. This is also the case for graduates from the University of London International Programmes and also from overseas annex campuses of UK institutions (eg University of Nottingham, Ningbo).
