Hi all,
I am currently on a gap year and want to apply for Bsc A&F at LSE, do i stand a chance if i got bad gcses (5A,5B,1C) but achieved A*AAA at A2 (Chem, Physics, Bio, Maths).
Furthermore i have an extra curricular profile unmatched by any 18 yr old- already ran two successful businesses, financial trading since 16 - started real trading on 18th bday and already made 65% on my investment within 2 months, can do PhD mathematical derivations of financial models etc.
What are my chances of getting into this competitive course? will my bad GCSE grades be offset by my strong EC activities?

Very high chance. One question: What did you get in GCSE Maths and English?

I'm very confident about you academically! Make sure you write these experiences on to your personal statement and explain them well

Thank you very much, means a lot ☺️ & i will do! Already written up most of it, do you think its worth doing a few more AS levels on the side just to kinda strengthen my profile? Because I've got enough time during this year to do them

That's fantastic! I recommend you doing C3 and C4 maths to bump it up to an A* and AS further maths too!

My friend received an offer this year for LSE Economics: A*AA (A* in maths) and A in AS further maths!

Is three A2 subjects enough to compete for a place in LSE? (ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE / FINANCE)I had 4a's in AS for Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I had dropped Biology for now and my A2 forecast is 3A*. Will my subject combination be a major disadvantage to me? I don't have much great stuff to write in my personal statement though.Because seems like most of the guys here have four if not five A2 subjects. Thanks.

Yep. My mate got predicted 3 A*s and got into A&F. And you option choice is quite good, sciences and maths are demanding hard subjects

Hey thank you. Do you know are there any LSE student who are willing to share their personal statement? I would like to have a read on it just to get an idea as I'm really clueless to start. Thanks.
