    What's your grade and predictions?
    Copy and pasted from sig:

    GCSEs:
    7A* (inc. Maths), 2A, 1C (Spanish)


    AS:
    Maths A (293/300)
    Physics A (242/300)
    English A (200/200)
    Economics A (200/200)

    [Best 3: 99.223%]


    A2 Predicted:
    Maths A*
    Economics A*
    English A*
    Further Maths (AS) A

    -----------

    The flaw in my application is the lack of A2 FM but I am studying S1 and S2 with FP1 for AS FM. I'm the least confident about LSE because of this and also I didn't write too much Maths stuff on PS, I just did baree econ stuff.

    Also my GCSEs are meant to be a flaw

    Relax it's only early November. LSE should get back to you at the end of the whatever week it is email. They operate on a rolling process so the earlier you apply the earlier you'd hear back.

    If it helps, last year I sent my application on October 11th and LSE returned to me with a decision on December 12th. Generally, it was people who sent their applications in September which heard back from them in November.

    You will get an LSE offer. I know people who have gotten offers with much lower grades and far far lower UMS average. Your application is basically perfect. (1A* off perfect).

    Thanks for your kind words but LSE are notoriously harsh, I feel like I have a better chance at Cambridge than at LSE, imho. Really wish I took FM last year :/ (Given they are incredibly slim chances to begin with!)

    jesus, was nice and big and fairly reputable for Cambridge - I reckon getting pooled is likely so I didn't put too much thought into it
