    Hey,

    I have decided my five choices however I want to know the likelihood of being offered a place at each college.

    My Academics:
    GCSE: 4A* 5A 1B
    AS: 4A
    A2 (predicted): A*(Maths)A*(Biology)A(Economics)
    I have amazing work experience at Parliament shadowing an MP and at Merrill Lynch on the trading floor.
    A very strong personal statement edited by a Professor of Political Science

    My choices:
    LSE - Government and Economics - AAA
    UCL - PPE - A*AA
    King's College London - Political Economy - AAA
    Surrey - Politics and Economics - A*AA
    Sheffield - Politics and Economics - AAB

    I know I have strong recent academics but how do you rate the likelihood of gaining offers from these university considering all my previous academics?

    Any help is appreicated,

    Jamie

    Nothing to suggest you're not a strong candidate for all of those places.

    Do you think GCSEs are low enough to play a negative role in my application, or are they fine?

    They are very likely to be fine.
