    My GCSEs:

    English Language: B
    English Literature B
    Physics B
    Chemistry B
    Biology A*
    Geography A*
    Classical Civilisations A
    Spanish A
    Maths C
    Overall: 2A*s, 2As, 4Bs and a C.

    I did Government and Politics, Geography, Psychology and Biology for AS.
    My AS grades were: AABB respectively.
    I've dropped Biology, waiting for a remark on Psychology (2 marks away! )
    My predicted grades for A2 are: A*AB

    My personal statement, I believe, sounds pretty good (fingers crossed), but of course there are a tonne of competitive students out there, lols.

    My teachers like me, so I hope I've got good enough references..

    Do I have a chance to get into LSE?
    (oh, btw, I would be applying for International Relations, requirement is AAA).

    You could get in, but your chances aren't amazing because of your GCSE performance and predicted grades. They want at least AAA predicted, and they don't see A*AB as equal to AAA.

    I don't think I have a chance with lse. The thing about lse is you NEED a very good personal statement, since they don't interview and this also put more emphasis on your as results. My GCSEs were as follow:
    Biology - A*Physics - A*Chemistry - A*History - A*Religious Studies - A* ICT - A*Urdu - AMaths - A*English Language - AEnglish Literature - A*Further Maths - AGeography - A*French - BBusiness Studies - A*
