    Hi guys, I am an international student so please allow my poor English.
    I am applying to unis now and just wondering my chances to get accepted from unis I am applying to. I am applying to UCL for Mathematics, LSE for Mathematics with Economics. The followings are my scores, etc.

    AEA Mathematics Merit
    A-Level A* in Maths(with 97 marks in both C3 and C4)
    AS-Level A in Further Maths(FP1 97, FP3 A, M1 A) sorry can't remember UMSs
    D in Economics (Unit 1 E, Unit 2 B)
    E in Psychology (Unit 1 U, Unit 2 E)
    IMC/SMC Gold, Merit in Kangaroo (Best in year/school)
    GCSE 1A* in Maths (This is because I came to the UK in year 11.)

    I am also applying to Oxford and Imperial for Maths but chances at these unis will depend on my MAT score and performance in interview(s) so I am studying MAT now. I am considering King's for my fifth choice as an insurance but their offer doesn't include A* in Maths even though I've already attained it so will I need to change my mind? If so, could you recommend some unis apart from Warwick and Durham since my parents don't want me to go any of them(I am not saying I am positive that I will be accepted if I apply). By the way, I am studying additional further Maths as a third A-Level subject as I am not very confident I can get an A in any subject apart from Maths because of my English. I wanted to choose sciences like Physics and Chemistry but my school didn't let me since I didn't complete GCSE sciences.

    Thank you.

    Hello!
    Okay, so something I really recommend you to do is to mention your circumstances (the fact that your school did not allow sciences because of your GCSEs) in your personal statement and reference.
    I really don't reccommend LSE and Oxford, as those unis are VERY particular about straight As and good GCSEs. It will also be hard to get into LSE with the D in Economics. However, it doesn't hurt to try the other unis, but do make sure you tell your referee to write that you're really talented in math etc etc

    Not Imperial either with the AS grades.
