    Hey,

    None of the teachers at my school have predicted A*s this year because apparently they dont know what percentage an A* actually is in terms of marks...

    Do you think me not having A* predictions will disadvantage my application to LSE?

    No. The LSE have said they're not using the A* yet. Besides, teachers shouldn't be predicting A* grades anyway (although some still do).

    A* is just 80% overall and 90% in the second year. If a teacher thinks you are capable of that then they should predict you A*. simple as that really.

    And it could do, i know a lot of unis are giving out offers involving A*s so a lot are using them.

    why not?
    Apparently it's unfair, since the A* hasn't been tested yet, because some teachers will just predict all their As as A* instead, whereas others won't.

    I would say it helps to get A* prediction but with A prediction I think you'll be okay. I doubt it'll make or break your application especially if your school simply doesn't predict them no matter what.
