    Hey guys, hope you can help me as I really need it.

    Currently I'm at Loughborough doing economics first year, the course is good but i absolutely despise the location and feel very isolated etc., hence why I'm transferring uni. Originally I had planned on applying for 2nd year entry to SOAS Economics but I've created a complete UCAS application with dropping out in mind. In other words I'll drop out at Christmas and not come back then hope I get offers and go to one of these unis next year.

    Last year I got an offer from SOAS for Economics, but chose loughborough instead ( i have no idea why to this day ).

    These are my grades:
    AAA in A2, Economics, Psychology, Business.
    3A*, 4A, 2B in Gcse. A*s in History, English lang, lit.

    I want to apply for these courses:

    SOAS: BSc Economics (got an offer last year)
    SOAS: BA Geography and Economics OR Politics and Economics
    LSE: International Relations
    LSE: Government and Economics
    LSE: Politics & Philosophy

    I have a strong personal statement that got me good offers last year. However, I dont have A level maths which has always held me back.

    What do you guys think my chances of getting offers from SOAS and LSE are? I know that, obviously, LSE is extremely competitve but I know far less about courses other than Economics. Which of those LSE courses am I least likely to get in to? Also am I more likely to get into IR & History at LSE than IR?

    Thanks for any help you can give me I'd really appreciate it
