    It's still a difficult question to answer, not least because it does vary significantly by department.

    Also, what's your definition of "good"?

    Not all that much, get As and Bs and you're set. As long as they aren't like 3Ds 2Es 4Cs and a B you should be in with a shot for around top 10-20.

    I know people with no As or A*s at GCSE and no As as AS-level who got into LSE. It depends what course and what university. Economics, Medicine, Law at the top institutions probably care more. Especially Medicine. And Economics at LSE and Warwick.
