    I am in high school and will be graduating in 2011 to attend university in september 2011 in the UK
    I am doing IB (International Baccalaureate) and usually good at school. I have decided to major in business and these are my choices:

    1. City University (35 points, bsc Business studies)

    2. LSE (London school of economics) (37 points, bsc management)

    3. Kings College (36 points, bsc business management)

    4. Lancaster (34 points, bsc, business studies)

    5. Leicester (30 points,ba management studies)

    I dont think my teachers like me that much and I dont think they are going to predict up to 37 points. However, I have full confidence that I can achieve upto 37 points but I loose all my self confidence when I hear the fact that unis look at your predicted grades rather than ur real exam grades. I dont think I will be offered a place if everything is based on the predicted grades.

    The thing is, I am not saying that I am not good at school, I love all my subjects. But what bugs me is that the teachers base their predicted grades just on their estimate.

    You're applying to LSE and you can't use lose/loose correctly. I think you may struggle there, just sayin'.

    What else do they have to base your predicted grades on? Your word?

    So? I doubt that has anything to do with it whatsoever, but even so they don't have a hope in hell if their grammar and spelling is this bad. You don't get some kind of special consideration 'just because you're an international student' if you aren't good enough.

    I think that for LSE you are going to have to be given a prediction minimum of 37 points so get bugging your teachers. Their management course is ridiculously competitive so it is highly likely that they would reject you with anything lower.
