    For GCSE I got 4A*'s, 5A's and 2B's at a really terrible school that get awful results. I want to do economics at LSE and I got an A* in maths and got full marks in all my physics exams. I am doing maths, further maths, physics and economics for my a levels. If i was to get 4A's for AS with really high UMS scores and a great personal statement, would I be in for a chance to get accepted by LSE or have my GCSE results let me down. Be brutally honest with me cause I wanna know the truth.

    They're good. Certainly won't be at a disadvantage but GCSEs don't give you much of an advantage in most universities.

    If you go to a **** school, change schools as it'll 100% be worth it.
