First of all I want to say that I am from the EU. Since we don't have the GCSE, I understood they will be taking into consideration our grades from the previous years. I have an average of 9,70 in my last 3 years of high school. Then, as an entry requirement I am asked for a 9 overall in my exams, which is not a problem.
I want to apply for Accounting & Finance in 2017, but I have don't have any extracurricular activities that are advantageous for my course. I have a couple of argumentative essays published in our school's english magazine, but i don't think that is relevant. On top of that i won't be taking the Maths Baccalaureate ( A levels equivalent), but i might take the Economics one.
Do I have any chances if my personal statement is good? I'm really interested in finance and I've been doing research on my own, reading books, watching youtube videos, etc - I even have a virtual trading account that has been growing at a steady rate . I like researching and making my own ideas and I read that LSE is all about individual study, which i enjoy and excel at.
But we haven't even met!
