    (Original post by antigone-)
    Hi, I'm another offer holder like redwhiteandbrit

    Got an offer with good grades but not as amazing as some claim to have on here - in my experience it is the PS that matters!

    Hey everyone
    I'm applying to LSE for A&F. I got 9A's and 1B at GCSE's however at AS I got BCDE (Geography, Maths, Physics and German) I've dropped German for A2 and carrying on the other three. My PS includes two different work experience one for Finance and the other for Accounting. The finance one i did was at Chichester University. Do I have even a small chance of an Offer?? Also applying to Warwick, Surrey, Lancaster and Brunel
    Thanks!

    What are your predictions?

    You can apply if you want, but in my opinion choose another university. Basing it on your AS grades, you have no chance of getting an offer. You might be better off applying to another university with lower requirements to be honest. Because you have to think, "if" you get an offer, can you make the entry requirement grades?

    This depends on your prediction grades though... since you might have improved a lot since last year.

    I don't know my predicted grades yet but I'll be retaking some maths modules to bump up my grade as I got an A In one of the papers. Physics is linear so we have to retake all the papers from AS anyway so that'll hopefully increase my overall grade which will help me get the entry.

    International student(from US) applying for history. How soon do you typically get decisions?
    Most of the decisions will be made in Feb/March 2017. Very few get decisions before then normally the very top students get early decisions. You will get a series of emails updating you on the progress. After 2 weeks you normally get the email telling you that you are being compared to your cohorts so they need a few applications before than even start reviewing applications. Good Luck

    Guys I have applied to LSE for bsc finance with the subjects in 12th grade as English, Physics, Chemistry, Math and Computer Science. As the only subject which is mandatory for LSE is math (according to their website). Will I be having any disadvantages because of it. (In 10th grade I had economics and I scored 95% ie A* and i scored 95% for math as well)

    Also applying for Bsc Finance here

    You have very impressive grades for economics and mathematics ! Which I think are the two most desirable subjects for the course. You overall subject combinations also looks good to me. So I dont think it will be disadvantage for you

    I know! With any luck we'll get in too I've applied to Trinity, I really liked Caius' culture - it seems very tight knit, and the accommodation is crazily good.
