How many A* do I need for Economics at LSE. I am predicted 9 A* in Biology, Chemistry, English Language, English Literature, French, German, History, Physics and Religious Studies. I am predicted A in Maths and Statistics.
Would these GCSEs be good enough for Economics at LSE? Of course, I haven't even done my A-levels yet, but a good start is always the best!

LSE don't have a specific A* at GCSE requirement but the have the below to say
If you have taken GCSEs or equivalent qualifications, these will be taken into account when we assess your application. All applicants are expected to have at least grade B in GCSE English Language and Mathematics or the equivalent, although exceptions are made for applicants with extenuating circumstances.
As competition for places at LSE is intense, we look for applicants who have achieved highly at GCSE (multiple A or A* grades), particularly within the context of their school.
Some programmes require grades higher than B in GCSE Mathematics and these are outlined in the individual programme entries.
I cannot guarantee anything but if you have 9A*2A at GCSE level then I would guess you would be able to make a reasonable application to the University in year 12.Last edited by Kvothe the arcane; 11-07-2016 at 13:35.

9A* is absolutely fine... there isn't a lower limit beyond Maths and English requirements but obviously the more A* the better due to the competition. As long as you're in the top % for your school then it shouldn't matter too much, definitely not as much as your AS grades/A2 predictions.
