    Facts:
    A*A*AA- in further maths, maths, phy. and econ, respectively. (achieved)
    In all TSA oxford practice papers, I've achieved between 38-46 marks

    Question

    If I write a great PS, do well in all of the logic questions in interview, get approx. 40 marks on TSA, do I have any chance of getting in? Bare in mind: I can't remember much of my economics and don't read well around the subject.

    Chances are very slim, right?

    I'm not really convinced that you are passionate about economics if you "can't remember much" and didn't read around the subject? How are you going to convince world-leading academics, then, that you are willing to commit to three years of intense learning in the field?

    I don't know why you would do that? How is it going to help with your application to create a scenario which isn't accurate and ask for help?

    I wanted to find out if you can get in by virtue of just a high TSA score, relatively good interview+ I prefer red to green.
