If i applied to LSE for Accounting & Finance, which requires AAA at A level, what would be my chances with these grades:
GCSE's: 1A*, 7A's, 3B's
AS level grades: A - Econ, B - maths, B - business, C - Physics, D - Critical thinking
A level predicted: A - Econ, A - business, B - maths (but hoping to get an A)
I know that it will be very competitive and my predicted is below their requirements but, with an EXCELLENT personal statement and very good references, could I be in with a good chance?
Thanks!

Your grades are really good, but I'm afraid they're not good enough for LSE. It's crazy competetive there and even people who meet the grade requirements sometimes don't get in. Your AS grades also let you down slightly, so I don't think you'd have a very good chance of getting in, I'm sorry!

But your grades are great and I have no doubt you'll get onto another course and do amazingly and amazingly at life!

Good luck with everything!

You took for Alevel Economics AND Business which are interlinked and quite frowned upon to be taken together.. Your AS are pretty low ABBC .

Very unlikely you get in.

it'd take an absolute miracle for you to get in.
But there are a lot of good unis that would give you an offer with those grades. If you're that hung up about it take a gap year after you've finished A2 with (hopefully) better grades and reapply.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I'd also like to add the fact that I have undertaken 3 relevant and i feel, very good work experience placements. Will this help to make me a more attractive proposal to them? Any other feedback welcome!

Hey guys. My situation is a bit different, but the question is the same.
I'm not British nor an IB student. Everything else's like really great, I go to one of three best schools in my country, my grades are great, i'm involved in various activities and so on. But I've heard that no matter how good you are, it's basically impossible to get in if you're not from the UK or an IB graduate. So do I have any chances?

That's not true. Which country are you from and what are your grades?

No LSE doesn't care about work experience that much-sorry. If you check the LSE 2014 thread you will see many guys who had 4 As at AS and 10-11 A* at GCSE and didn't get into LSE. It isn't that much about you being a bad candidate than about them not having enough places. LSE is a small university.
I only had ABBB at AS but I had mitigating circumstances and my Bs were all 79% (quite unlucky) but then I got in for history.You can give it a shot, you have 5 choices. Just dont get your hopes too high.

Ok thanks Armin. Without LSE, my other choices would be Bath (BSc A+F), Durham (BSc Finance), Loughborough (BSc Banking, Finance and management), Exeter (Ba A+F) and City university london (BSc financial economics).
What are yours and other peoples thoughts on these choices and the likelihood of me receiving an offer from these Uni's. I have been told that Exeter put more weight on GCSE results in comparison to some other Uni's? I don't know how true this is. Bath want AAA, so bearing that in mind, and other factors i have mentioned - PS, work exp etc, what are my chances?
Sorry, I know I've asked quite a few questions!

I am a gap year student and I got AAB for my A Levels.I also have very good and relevant work experiences and excellent records in my co-curricular activities?

Do I stand a chance in getting to LSE Bsc Management Course? Their entry requirement is AAB (as stated on the website)?

Thanks !

In this case you meet the ENTRY acquirements however it doesn't mean that you will be accepted as there are hundreds/thousands of others just like you or with higher marks.

What were your subjects?
