    No chance.
    I don't know, I got in with less.

    OP: Your work experience and volunteering makes not a jot of difference unless you relate it to economics. Similarly with your golf and tae kwon-do.

    However, always worth applying; it's one choice out of five and they have to accept some people - you don't know if it's you unless you apply.

    Sorry, I was being facetious.

    Of course you have an excellent chance of getting in - excellent grades, work experience etc.

    As long as your statement is strong you're in with a shout.

    It annoys me slightly when people with straight A/ A*'s ask if they can get in somewhere?!

    Hi i was wondering whether you think it is worth me applying for a BSc Economics at LSE.
    HERE are my GCSEs
    maths A*
    History A*
    GeographyA*
    Additional science A*
    ICT(Short Course) A*
    Core science A
    Art Graphics A
    Welsh A
    RS (short course) A
    English Lit B
    English lang B

    At AS i am studying Maths, Economics, History and Biology.
    In my recent results i had 2 As in the 2 exams i had. (maths and Biology)

    For my PS i have numerous work experiences and have done a lot of volunteering.
    I also play golf(handicap of 5, and play for county)and have a Black belt in tae kwon-do.

    So would be grateful if you could tell me what you think.
    oh yeh and ive got the opportunity to study further maths at A level- do you think i should?
    Don't think there's any way you could get in with those grades mate. Simply not good enough, I mean you need like 12 A*s at least to get anywhere near LSE.

    Try London Metropolitan instead, they've got a fantastic economics programme.

    When people get amazing grades and say they "under achieve" you guys take the mick.
    When people get good grades and want to achieve you say they're s***.

    Take further maths or they will want you to explain why you didn't take it. People with 11 A*s get rejected but people with less than you have got it too its all about luck really.
    Not really...

    I would advise you to strongly go with the idea of picking up Further Maths

    One of my friends got 4A*s at A2 level & was rejected by both Oxford & Cambrigde due to not having picked up Further Maths. However he still got into a really respected institution UCL

    I would urge you to please pick up Further Maths if you want to even stand a chance for consideration in studying at LSE
