    I recently got 2 A*s in History, Politics and a D1 in Economics Pre U. I have a place at LSE to study History and Politics. I didn't apply to Oxford this year, but I am thinking of applying to History and Politics or PPE, most likely the latter. My main concern is employment, but I am concerned with not being in a city like London. My GCSEs are 8 A*s, 1 A and 1 C, so what do you guys think about 1. my chances on getting in, and 2. whether there is a point in me doing so?

    The answer to your question will be the same as to everyone who asks - consider whether you'd be taking a gap year or starting at LSE. If a gap year, would you consider it a productive use of time even if you got rejected? If not, would you still be able to ask teachers to provide references? Honestly, the LSE is an excellent place to be and if you like the course and the city, you wouldn't lose out by going there unless you were absolutely ~desperate~ to go to Oxford.*

    As above. I would further apply to other universities too, such as UCL, in case you realise that LSE isn't for you either. Spend that year earning money and you'll be set.
