    I have received my AS results: AABC and am not satisfied at all, however I am now in a dilemma about whether I should drop one subject or not as my first university choice is LSE and following choices are along the lines of UCL, Warwick, etc where I intend to pursue a economics based degree, e.g. economics and economics history at LSE, etc. my AS levels are, economics (A), maths (C), english language (B - 5 marks away from an A) and business studies (A) - i got high A's for econ and business and thinking of retaking some modules for maths next year as maths is compulsory and cannot be dropped if i intend to study at a top uni. Therefore, I am not sure whether i should drop business or carry it on as i am likely to recieve an A* prediction for it but also know that it is a less preffered subject by LSE.

    What should i drop to maximise my chances of getting into a uni like LSE or should i keep all four and why?

    Thanks, your feedback would be highly appreciated.

    English Language is probably the one that matters the least for an economics degree anywhere.

    As long as you meet the entry reauirements I don't see why they wouldn't let you in on the others.

    Hmm.. Okay, its just that if you visit the LSE website, economic based courses require A*AA-AAB grades and also they have a list of 'less preffered subjects' which includes business studies. Now although they have mentioned that accepted applicants should have 3 acceptable A levels or a combination of two acceptable ones and one from the list of 'less preffered subjects' meaning i can do something like econ, maths and business, I just do know if i should choose that A2 combo as competition at LSE is very high and i dont wany any disadvantages on my side..
