    I have 12 A*s at GCSE. I'm predicted 4 A*s at A level in Maths, History, French and Economics. I have a 96.5 ums average in my AS's. I'm taking an AS in Further Maths and I'm writing an EPQ so that by the end of my A levels I will have the equivalent of 4 A levels and 2 AS Levels. I'm applying for Economics at LSE, and don't know whether I'll get in or not. I know that there's many variables, but how likely would you say I'll be offered a place and will not having a full A level in Further Maths hinder my chances of acceptance?
    You have no chance. Try London Met

    Mate, I'm pretty certain you need atleast 15 A*'s at GCSE just to get an interview. I would seriously recommend going for a Uni such as London Metropolitan or the University of Bolton, you have to be realistic about your chances.

    Also 4 A*'s at A-Level prediction is borderline average if i'm honest. Most have 5 or 6 A* predictions, and the top candidates usually have set up multi-billion pound businesses by the age of 16. Signs of entrepreneurship or something like that. *

    I'm in a similar position to you, only I'm wondering about your UMS average? Surely with new spec the only thing contributing to your average UMS is your math?

    These are strong results so you'll likely get an offer - personal statements matter much less when you have the grades. Maybe try Cambridge though? That's my first choice and I have similar results (9A* GCSE and 98.5 UMS maths/further maths average). What modules have you done already btw?

    Same as you (only I got 10A*s and 99.3 maths/further average). What colleges are you thinking of applying to? I really want to go to trinity but I also want to actually get in, lol

    The pool system in Cambridge makes it more fair for applicants. So apply to the one you prefer, if you do well enough either they will take you or another college. By the way, if you are applying for Trinity just for the name, then its not a wise choice... Visit the colleges if you can and go to the one which you feel you like the atmosphere.

    No, I went around and I absolutely loved what trinity was. Of course, I also loved all the other colleges.
