    Hello, I'm going into Year 13 (starting in a few days -_-) and am considering applying to LSE BSc Economics. My AS grades were really trash, I got A (Maths), B (Econ), D (English) and E (Computing) and I'm dropping English so my AS will be a D.

    I am considering re-taking some modules of Maths to maximise my UMS mark. However, for my AS (which is a D-grade for English), I am considering doing a language - Italian (which is my 1st Language) cos I know I'll be able to get a higher grade than a D. But I'm not sure. Are these grades enough or should I do an extra AS???

    Thoughts?

    You got an A in AS Maths so why resit? If your aiming for an A* in maths, you just need to average 80% in AS, it won't make it any easier apart from the fact you would need a slightly lower UMS in the applied module. Next you primarily need 3 A-levels to make the bulk of the offer. I can't comment if you should do Italian instead as I have read that you if you do a Language A-level with it being your first language, it looks downed upon. The offer seems to be A*AA so its possible if you perform better in Econ and perhaps English or Italian, whatever you choose
