    You underestimate the competition at LSE. They could well be good enough it depends on the rest of their application, but I've seen people with incredible scores get rejected.
    Well that just demonstrates that they care more about the personal statement than having stellar UMS.

    That is true, but as someone said previously and in previous years, people with very high UMS are still rejected due to the fact that the personal statement is the most important factor.
    That's not to say that high UMS won't help!

    Hey guys, sorry to hijack the thread but as many of you are applying to do economics at top unis and I want to do an economics degree. I just want your opinion on the a levels I'm choosing: Maths, Further Maths, Economics, Geography. Are these choices good enough for oxbridge lse or warwick and also I am good at history so will it be better to swap geography for history or is it fine?

    They're fine. As long as you have Maths, FM and Economics, the fourth is an open option.
