    My dream is to do an Economics degree at LSE. Do I need to get an A* in my Maths GCSE to do this! High grade boundaries this year make me think I got an A! I am really worrying so could someone help me out?!

    No an A is good enough given you get an A*/A in A-Level, I want to do something similar

    But are you speaking about maths with economics or just economics, I don't remember there being an economics by itself but there probably is, and with what everyone is saying about LSE it's putting me off and making me lean towards UCL but they are both great unis regardless

    If you think you can get an A in it when you start and after first year, I recommend you do the whole a-level

    It's just extra maths and a whole A-Lebel so if you are good at maths and enjoy it then I recommend it.
