    Is it possible to get into LSE to do straight Economics with 3a* predictions in Sociology, Maths and Economics.
    Or would it be wise to apply for something like social policy with economics at LSE?

    Can you not apply to both and see which gives you offers before you decide? Because both are good .... there's no wrong answer here.

    I want to apply to both but then my personal statement would be for philosophy and economics whereas I'll just be applying to Warwick for economics so that will hurt my chances. I could also apply for ppe at Warwick but then I wouldn't be mentioning politics at all thus again hurting my chances.

    Have you considered applying for PPE at both LSE and Warwick? LSE offers a new PPE course starting 2015. That way, you can apply to both choices with the same PS, which would mention politcs, philosophy and economics.

    I know but LSE needs an A* in math for that and I cannot get higher than an A in math. Plus im not really a big fan of politics.

    How do you know you can't get an A* in Maths? I may be wrong, but most people assume they can't get an A* in Maths because they think you need 90% of marks across the entire A level to get an A*. In reality, you just need an A overall, which you say you can get, and 90% aggregate in the A2 modules.

    I think it might be difficult for the following reasons:

    • Further Maths is considered highly desired. Ignore this if it wasn't offered at your sixth form.
    • Sociology isn't a "traditional" academic subject.
    • The LSE don't value A level Economics for some reason
    • The B at AS might put you at a further disadvantage.


    However... if you write a good enough personal statement, I see no reason why it's outright impossible to get in. All that's worth remembering is that there are plenty of people predicted A*A*A with Maths, Further and a "traditional" subject, with AAAA at AS, who don't manage to get in. Still, you have 5 options so go for it!

    I know I can't cuz im not the smartest of them all when it comes to math Also I got a B in AS in math which I am resitting fkr an A so obviously for me getting the A is huge. And there is no way my teacher will predict an A*. So just tell me if Warwick econ is better or LSE phil and econ

    Is having AS FM enough for LSE or would they deem me at a significant disadvantage to those with full A2? I will do FP1, S1 and S2, therefore I will not be disadvantaged when it comes to statistics, surely?

    Warwick economics is very mathematical. If you can't get an a for maths at as and aren't comfortable with getting an a* then I'd advise you to go for Phil and econs.

    Should I apply for economics at LSE?
    7 A*'s and 4 A's in GCSE. 4 A's at AS.
    UMS: maths- 90%
    Economics-100%
    Chemistry- 87%
    Physics-92%
    Slightly concerned about have only 90% ums in maths so I have taken up further maths as an additional AS on top of my four A levels.
    What are my chances of getting an offer?
