    Yes you have a chance. What subjects and grades do you have?
    (If you dont want to share here, you can PM me and I "might" be able to help you out)

    But for this course, grades alone dont do it. LSE doesnt interview students, so the hing they can use the most to differentiate students is the PS, so thats very important. Once again, a very strong PS can make up for slightly lower grades (basing it on very few offer holders I knew of from last year).

    Whats LSE like for GCSE's?

    I've got 2A's at AS (one is linear), got an A* in EPQ already and am predicted A*A*A*.

    However, i only have 2A* 3A's 3B's at GCSE.

    Does this seem like a problem to anyone? I know my a levels are fine but I have heard that they are very strict on GCSE's?
    You won't get in

    Are you sure? I know my GCSE's were bad but I have got the best possible AS level/A2 predictions and A* EPQ wont this make up for it?
    What course are you applying for?

    I live in London with my brother and sister studying in Universities in London. So I only applied to London Universities and Cambridge. So my family and I prefer that I stay in London with my brother and sister. (Also efficient in terms of costs)

    Also, in 'World rankings' LSE is the best Economics University which is in the UK. I know different websites say different things.

    Also, the course in LSE is BSc and the modules are more mathematical. In Cambridge its BA and I heard from a student that its half mathematical and half essay based. This is because Cambridge has compulsary courses on 'Economic History' and 'Political and Sociological Economics' which dont have maths in them. (This is a small reason though)
    Ahh, that makes sense tbh. Which college are you applying to at Cambridge? And yes, different websites say a multitude of things - but ultimately, if it's aesthetic appeals to you - then there's no place better I think Cambridge being a BA isn't too big a problem - a Cambridge Degree is a Cambridge Degree ;P

    Social anthropology (probably the least competitive course at LSE)
    Mate. clearly a bit of a troll. If you're predicted such high grades, I think it's quite a lot more unlikely that you don't get in. Why social anthropology?

    AS: 4 A(maths 300ums, further maths 296 ums)

    I got a C in maths, additional science and English language but the rest of my subjects I got a B. Let's say I got AAA in AS, does that mean I can still go LSE?

    The C in Maths and English Language in particular will hurt your chances, it might be worth looking into retaking those

    It says on the LSE website that they receive their first applications from UCAS in late September, so you should get an email in a couple of weeks.

    If your prediction meets the minimum they want, it means that they will consider you. But the higher the prediction the better.
