    Hi, I'm a good way into my AS courses and am about to take my exams. Over this last year i've become really interested in doing a degree in geography or maybe even international relations as i've recently discovered how much I enjoy these subjects. However, I chose Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Geography for AS and a lot of people who are applying to these courses have taken more social sciences. Is there a reasonable chance I could get on of of these courses with my chosen AS subjects despite the lack of social sciences? (and is the likelyhood of getting into a competitive Uni like LSE out of the question?)

    I'd really appreciate any advice, thanks x

    no, as long as you take Geography to A2 all Geography courses are open to you and you can take International Relations with whatever combination of subjects really. LSE would rather you have taken the hard subjects you did than softer social science subjects like Sociology, Media e.c.t
