    I emailed LSE and they replied today saying I should retake my B in Chemistry, but this would slightly disadvantage me when applying.
    Also the Further Mathematics grade is strongly preferred and counted for Mathematics with/and Economics degree.

    My friend got in this year at LSE for the same course with the same grades. However, he already had an offer of A*AA, but achieved A*A*B on results day and was accepted.

    So not sure what to do, will probably just apply and hope for the best.

    I'd suggest getting a prediction on your reference as well for your Chemistry grade to show LSE that you're capable of getting an A. Hope it all goes well

    Your friend is lucky
    They sometimes even reject you if you miss your offer by 1 in one subject while achieving above the requirement in other subjects. (Depends on course though)

    So make sure to retake your Chemistry (with prediction A or above) if you want to have a chance.

    The first is good, the second is risky depending on what the C is in. Of course, it depends on what kind of school you've come from/where + other contextual data

    Just to be clear you have 2 problems. Improving your chemistry to A will solve the first problem.
    The other problem is you can't use Further Maths as part of A*AA offer you will need another A2 Level course with at least an A. .Check this with LSE about using the Further Math as part of the A*AA requirement for Economics with math.

    The first one is fine. The second one looks risky, but for both cases, it depends on the subjects you got B and C in and also the course you want to apply.

    A-Level grades are way more important though.

    Same here, friends I'm holding an unconditional (finally!) offer for Law. Pretty sure the PS was what got me through as well (:

    And the Open Day was awesome! Definitely follow redwhiteandbrit's advice on this one - it made the decision between UCL & LSE so much easier for me.
    Could you please help with my PS! I don't know if I'm one the right track. Congrats on the offer & I hope uni is going well!

    well now you understand the competition. these universities aren't easy to get into, don't call someone a dick whom is probably more motivated than you and has an incredibly strong work ethic. just up your game. work harder. you sound like a lame rn.

    I stand by Vinai TBH, a lot of people come here just to gloat about themselves - it's a bit of an arrogant thing to do imo.

    you can feel one of two ways - jealous or motivated. why be the former? who wants to be a salty loser their whole life? just be motivated, there are people out there with amazing grades and as a student you should aspire to get those grades.

    Aye I second this

    People like gmahapatra are the ones who ultimately come on here complaining about how competitive everyone is and how it appears that everyone is better than them and how they wished that they hadn't firmed LSE and how they should have gone to Durham etc. If one's response is to crawl into a hole and start calling people rude/arrogant, then I wouldn't apply to LSE (or any other top uni for that matter).

    Slow down, I never claimed anyone is better than me, and nor that I intend to crawl into a hole. I'm saying a lot of people tend to show up purely to be praised by others, I think we should find happiness in ways other than the approval of others.

    That's a totally fair argument, and I admire those who achieve their potential. But I disagree with the concept of coming onto forums to gloat about your achievements - someone with 11A*s might make someone with 11Cs feel terrible about his grades, but who knows what that someone's circumstances were?

    of course they're going to feel bad, that's human nature and it's a good thing. if you have 11C's and your friend has 11A*'s, then try and get all As at AS rather than sitting on a forum getting angry at someone who, most likely, studied for many many hours. they deserved it. the best way to get what you want in life is to deserve it. if you chill with your friends or watch youtube all day you shouldn't be complaining when the guy who sits on his ass for many hours every single day and revises gets higher grades than you. wouldn't it be crazy if the people who didn't put in any work got the highest grades? but that's not how the universe works. if you're upset about your grades, tough. just work harder next time round and prove everyone wrong and most importantly prove to yourself that you're not an idiot. its such a simple concept but bitter people will always make excuses.

    No okay fair enough, I understand that if someone's done no work they don't deserve success. But on the other hand, if someone has faced adversity or other things outside of their control they can't be held responsible for their results entirely. And whilst it's admirable to get good results, we should always remember that not everyone is equally fortunate.
