    Yeah I think it was alright. I did accidentally do the essay in pencil though, but the invigilator said that should be alright
    Which essay did you do? I thought the easiest one was the one on child labour so I just did that lol

    Hi everyone I've applied to LSE and just wondering what chance I have of getting in.

    My GCSEs are 11A*

    AS levels: maths A (93%) ocr
    Econs A (89%) ocr
    Further maths A (83%) ocr
    German A (80%) ocrocr

    I'm predicted 3A* and 1 A (in further maths) my German teacher messed up my oral so that's why I was still predicted an A*

    Just interested to know if I have a reasonable chance of getting an offer or if it's unlikely with my current percentage marks. Many thanks!

    I know I am not supposed to ask here but as most of you are applying to do economics at university could you please help me?
    I want to do an economics degree in the future and I'm set on doing the following A-levels: Maths, F.Maths, Economics and Geography. I want to know If History would be better than geography and Is history more desirable than geography for an economics degree?

    Thanks in advance.
    I do Maths, f.maths, economics and geography and would recommend doing geography. The human side of the course actually links in quite well with economics. However I think either would be fine

    i did all 5 at AS and got A in both (7% higher UMS in geog). IMO history is much better regarded due to transferable skills and complexity of it. AS geography was a walk in the park. Even now I believe AS history was harder than A2 geog. Saying that AS history is definitely bearable, but don't do it for A2. I picked the easy option and dropped history for A2 but its not like it helps me become a better Econ applicant. Basically either take History and drop for A2 or just do Geog.

    Thanks for the advise! I am definatelly keeping the on I choose for A2 and dropping further maths. If you don't mind me asking, what uni do you go to or plan on applying to and what did you get for your GCSE's. Many thanks
