    I'm conflicted as to whether I should apply to LSE/St Andrews in Sept. 2013 for 2014 entry to study Government/International Relations.

    These are the grades that I will hopefully have at the time of application and with any corresponding predictions for 2014. Bear in mind these where achieved in two years starting in 2011 meaning I will have spent an extra year in sixth-form however each A-level was achieved within two years.

    A-level History A*
    A-level Government & Politics A*
    AS Sociology A (A2 Prediction - A*)
    AS Psychology A (A2 Prediction - A)
    AS Literature D
    AS Geography E
    GCSE Mostly Cs and Bs

    Thanks in advance, any input is appreciated.

    You're best contacting both universities directly and asking whether they'll consider someone who has taken A levels over 3 years and what that could mean for your offer (often a university will make a higher offer).

    Is there a reason that your A levels have ended up over 3 years? If so then explain that to them too.

    Noone on TSR will be able to comment confidently on LSE or St Andrews admissions policies.

    LSE replied with a copy & pasted message about the entry requirements whereas St Andrews hasn't responded in two months.
