    Greetings. I am a Year 13 student contemplating on what my choices should be. I plan to do Economics and have researched and researched on uni that have modules that best suit my tastes.

    Thing is, I was considering LSE but I was slightly deterred by the fact that some people disliked their experiences there. Other than that I have UCL, Warwick, QMUL, City, Manchester, Nottingham and SOAS that I'm still deciding upon.

    Another problem, in my AS' I achieved ABDE (Maths, Economics, English and Computing respectively) -_-'. I wanted to drop English from the start and that's exactly what I did. So the D grade is my AS. Also, my GCSEs were 2A*s 4As 3Bs 1C (also kinda shite). I am considering doing a language as an AS only so that the AS will be higher than a D (hopefully).

    Are these grades enough for the unis I'm considering? If not, please recommend any universities preferably closer to London. Thanks

    What are your predicated grades? Your AS grades aren't amazing, are you sure you meet the entry requirements for the universities you've mentioned?

    I don't really know my predicted grades atm. My teachers will have to decide that, but from what university students told me, it'll be something like A*AC. I know LSE, UCL and others are a long shot, but I'm confident that I can get the grades. As I said before, I want to take AS Italian (since it's my native language) and I think I can get a better grades than a D. Is it worth doing AS Italian just for the AS grade to look better?
