    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.

    Hi, I´m an international student applying for international relations. I am an average student with a passion for this course, but I don´t want to get my hopes up because this is a very prestigious uni, very difficult to get in. I would like to know if you guys think I could stand a chance with a very strong personal statement.
    IGCSEs: A,B,A,C,A,AB,C,

    AS: Geography- B (3 points away from the A)
    Business Studies - B
    Spanish Literature- A (3 points away from the A*)
    I´m also doing English Literature and Language but the exam is next year.I am not completely sure about my target grades, but i think english is around the B.

    Extracurriculars:
    - I´m been the founder and leader of the first Girl Up club in Spain for 2 years (this is the 2)
    - Girl Up is a United Nations programme that helps empower woman- Also, i work as a teacher´s assistant with little kids.
    - I´ve translated in the parent´s evenings for primary since Y9, every term, helping translate information from the teacher to Spanish parents and vice versa.

    I´ve heard that even if the usual standard offer is AAA, if you don´t meet those grades but have a strong PS can enable you to be accepted. Should I apply?

    Maths with economics applicant. 3A*s 6As 2Bs at GCSE and AAAA at AS (Maths, FM, Physics, Economics) . Predictions haven't all been confirmed yet but it will either be A*A*A*A* or A*A*A*A.

    Don't think I'll get an offer because my personal statement is nothing special imo. Worth applying though I hope...
