    I have got A*A*AA in F.Maths, Economics, Maths and Biology respectively. As you can see, my A grade in Maths will put me in disadvantage for applying PPE since LSE requires A* in Maths (I did poorly in my C4 ). I am worried if I still stand a chance given that my personal statement is considered to be very strong by my teachers and friends.

    Currently I hold an offer for Warwick PPE, but the course at LSE is so unique that it is compulsory to study all the three disciplines throughout the 4 years, and there is an opportunity to be a one-year exchange student at UC Berkeley. I don't know what to do now. If I take a gap year to reapply for LSE, I plan to retake C4 alongside self-teaching A-level Government and Politics and work at a charity. I am here to ask for some advice.

    I'd definitely reapply to LSE if I were you.

    Those grades are stellar, and given your A* in Further Maths, the low C4 UMS was clearly an unlucky occurrence.

    However, make sure you have a lot to do in your gap year, so that if you don't make it into LSE next year (despite your grades, there's still a chance you won't make it due to the competition) at least the year won't have been wasted.
