    Need advice on this asap really.

    Is it worth applying for Politics and International Relations at LSE (requires AAA), if I'm applying for ESPS/Politics and French style courses at other places? My personal statement focuses mainly on politics but there is a fair amount of French-related stuff in it as well.

    I got AAAAB in AS levels (Politics, Economics, French, Critical Thinking, English Lit) and I'm predicted A*A*A (French, Economics, Politics in that order), with 5A*s, 4As and 1B at GCSE.

    You guys are so hopeful. But will soon find out it is a much longer process. There's like at least a thousand of 'equally qualified you' for 100 places. LSE does not make offers to the first 100 who qualifies, lol. The 1000 is whittled down to 500 strong candidates, say, then further down to 250, who then get offers. Don't get too excited. There are more emails to come.
    Yeah I've pushed LSE and Cambridge from my mind. Won't hear back from both of them until after Christmas. Just looking at Warwick and UCL for now tho. I just want A offer so I know I'm going somewhere.

    I applied for Politics and Philosophy as well as ESPS/ similar courses at other universities. Linked it all in the PS.

    I applied to Econ at Warwick, UCL, LSE, E&M at Oxford, and also Econometrics and Mathematical Economics at LSE. How does LSE view applying to both those courses? I wouldn't mind doing either but Econometrics would probably be my first choice out of all of them.
