    Well you can't get A*s at AS so I suppose just 3/4 As?

    I'm pretty sure A* does not exist for AS level, so just As really

    Well since to get an A only requires 80% UMS then to get the best predicted grades, and therefore the best chance of acceptance (subject to a strong personal statement), then you should ideally get As in all AS subjects, especially maths. Having said this, I'm generalising massively and there are always anomalies and circumstances that defy this.

    There's no A* at AS level, but having an average of 90+% will help you for any Economics-related course there

    I am going to LSE this year, I got in with 3A*s and 5As at GCSE, AABC at AS Level. I ended up getting an offer for straight Econ, and then managed to get A*A*A at A2.

    Honestly, you need a good personal statement to back up your passion for the subject. Let the grades supplement you!

    Wow that's great! What sort of things did you talk about in your personal statement?
