    Guys, I received my results on Thursday, and I got an A*AA with A* in History and A in Physics and Maths. Problem is, my offer for LSE (PPE course) needed me to get A* in Maths, but I only got an 88 UMS scores (90 is the threshold for A*). I emailed them, and they said they can only consider my full grades, and that I will be notified by 18th August. Does anyone have any idea how likely it is that I'll get in?

    No-one here can say for sure how likely it is you will get in with less than the grades required since that depends on how many other people on your course have missed their offers.

    Have you thought about getting one or more of your maths papers remarked?
