    Im currently studying 5 as levels

    Hopefully ill end up with 4A as im predicted but im worried i might only get a C in critical thinking
    This being the case when i apply to unis (including some top ones like LSE) will they look down on it or ignore it.

    Obviously id like to improve this grade but i think anything above a B is unlikely

    thanks for your help in advance

    Not really, because most of the uni's ask for only 3 A level grades anyway

    Well m,ost universities look for 3 Alevels only, and if you got 3 good alevels that contribute to your Undergraduate degree course, then it should not be a problem. Universites such as UCL tend to look for 3 Alevels and a pass in an AS. So if you can go on to achieve a B for citical thinking the more the merrier. Whereas with LSE i doubt they accept Critical thinking or General Stduies, but to have an Extra Alevel than expected may boost your application.
    Make sure you have a very good Personal statement and a reference as these are also vital in your application.

    Generally most top university won't look at Critical Thinking, or General Studies A-Level marks. Also some schools don't 'cash in' your marks until Summer of Year 13. So you won't need to declare your result on your UCAS form. I wouldn't worry. Getting the 4As in the proper subjects is much more important.
