    Does LSE look at the AS which is to be dropped? So if I get A*AA and a B or C in philosophy and ethics (the subject I'm dropping this year) will I be at a disadvantage with LSE? (For law)
    Honestly just for all good universities, they will look at all information that they have about you. If there is a student that has the same predicted grades and a similar quality of personal statement, then that dropped AS could be the difference between an offer or not! Just do your best in everything you're undertaking. If you do only get the B you better write a damn good PS. Most applicants to LSE have really really good grades.

    I got AAAB at AS, dropped the B and got an offer for law at LSE. I would definitely suggest nothing lower than a B though, I was predicted 3A* as well if that helps.

    Offer holder for Economics here. I was in the same position as you last year, thought if I didn't get AAAA there was no point applying (with sub par GCSEs and no valid reasons).

    I ended up getting AABC, applying for the most competitive course at the university, and hold an offer. There's a lot more they assess, other than grades. Just try your best, good luck!

    Also, as another disadvantage I am taking 2 of the new reformed a levels😬 So I won't have an AS in English lit of psychology 😒 I will have them in math, philosophy and ethics and creative writing though but they don't look as creative writing as a proper subject. ( I chose it as a 5th BC my college makes us do a 5th and it was between creative writing and general studies, critical thinking etc so I took it lol)

    They asked me for my UMS scores, but not sure if that was just for my course. They do see them, but as I said they make decisions based on very broad topics.

    They ask all Econ and Econ&Maths applicants for their UMS, if I'm not mistaken (or at least did so this year, with the previous AS/A2 system). They haven't done so for Law.

    Ah - I didn't know that :3
    Law's A*AA and doesn't ask for UMS, so it would be quite interesting to see which other subjects do ask for your module scores

    That's quick interesting - I think that you're the only person up to now that I've heard of to be asked for your UMS @ Were there any extenuating circumstances or anything else that was special about your application?
