I finished my exam 2 days back [Jan 4th] and got a 720 [ Q48 V41]. Over the past few months i have been deciding to apply for MSc in finance. 2 colleges i have shortlisted are LSE and Univ of Manchester. Should i apply to HEC as well? FT ranks it no.1 in Europe for masters courses. Please let me know. Deadline for HEC is 15 and i need to courier my documents. So i will have to apply within the next 2 or 3 days.

I am 19 and i am doing my final year undergraduation[ B.com]. Please please please help me out. Let me know what my chances are. Will my low score in math be a problem?


Thanks and regards

Hi jan4dday,

first of all, let me ask you one question, how's that you are in the last year of your undergraduate degree at the age of 19?

Regarding your question, I think you should do a bit of research about HEC, rather than rushing just because it's #1 in the rankings. Have you considered living in Paris? (BTW is not exactly in Paris). Are you interested in learning French? I am not sure, but when I was looking for the MSc in Management, I think it was compulsory for the first year. Where do you want to work upon graduation? If you study where you want to work afterward you will have more chances IMO.

In short, what I'm trying to tell you is that the rankings are a good start point, but you have to consider many other things as well.

Good luck.

I am not sure what you mean by this. I was born in 1990. I finished high school when i was 16. and i will turn 20 this april. Yes, i am one year younger, but that is because i did not my 1st year of KG.

I am afraid i wont get into LSE because of my low quants score. that is why i am apllying to HEC as well. otherwise i was never planning to apply to HEC

You have Q49 as your previous score, so you are up there in the 90th percentile (50 and 51 are very rare). I'd say give it a shot if it is realistic to finish it well.
