MSc Economics at LSE on full scholarship
Assistant Professor, ISBF
The journey was very eventful. I spent sleepless nights studying, and that’s how I achieved the LSE scholarship. I would like to mention my teachers, who were very supportive throughout these 3 years of my life.

There was no disconnect moving from academic years to professional years. I was taught to think critically, and be aware of what’s happening around the world. Today, when I look back, I think a lot of what I am able to connect to is because of my learning at ISBF.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

To pursue this programme, students must have studied Mathematics up to Class X.

We, at ISBF, believe excellence in anything increases your potential in everything. We are committed to academic excellence and strive to make achievement of such excellence a habit in our students.


Extending this notion of excellence to Extra-Curricular Activities, Co-Curricular Activities and Sports, we offer admissions under the ECA/CCA/Sports Category, for the LSE undergraduate programmes. Through this, we identify and nurture excellence in a wide array of activities.

Admission to ISBF is a 3-step process. The first step is to fill out the application form with all the required details. Next, you have to appear for the ISBF Entrance Test (iMET). Finally, the shortlisted students will have to appear for a Personal Interview.

Candidates who have obtained a composite SAT score of 1350 (within the 5-year validity period) or more will be exempted from iMET and will be invited directly for the Personal Interview.

iMET tests a candidate’s ability to reason logically, assimilate information meaningfully from multiple reading sources and apply concepts and techniques learnt in Mathematics up to Class X (based on the syllabi of the major Indian Boards).


For more clarity, candidates are advised to see the sample iMET question paper, along with its answer key and guidance on preparation. Click here to download the sample iMET question paper.
