    Hi guys,

    I had a really bad teacher for HL Maths and ended up just not giving in much effort at all and got some really *****y scores - not blaming the teacher here, I should've been more responsible for my education. I've asked if theres any way I can get a predicted 7 from here (I have a year and a bit left) but obviously its a bit of a stretch. On the other hand, I also take further maths (as a 7th subject) and have gotten a 7, hoping to take to final exam as well because I do actually quite like Maths.

    I really want to apply to LSE for Economics, but I don't know if I can with these scores... any advice on whether I can get an offer or how I can improve my chances from here?

    Thanks!
