    Hey, I got my AS results and they were: Geography-A
    Economics- A
    Law- B (one mark off an A which I am confident will be remarked to an A) Sociology- C (dropped)

    As well as this I'm doing the EPQ which I am quite likely to get an A or B in.

    Would someone be able to give me some advice on where to realistically aim? I would love to go to LSE but I think that might be slightly too ambitious. I would be doing International Relations at uni. Any advice would be helpful please.

    Hi,

    Congratulations on your results!

    LSE is ambitious regardless of results given how competitive it is so as long as you think attaining the grades they want is achievable both in terms of being predicted those grades and also actually achieving those grades in the long run then it's worth a shot. As with all highly competitive applications you just need to be realistic and also have some other options as a back up.

    To be perfectly honest with AAA predictions you have your pick of universities so I would advise just sitting down and doing a lot of research to work out what you are looking for from a university.
