    So the fact that I'm not doing History A level won't hinder me?

    Economics and economic history is a course within the economic history department, rather than the economics department, so that's where your personal statement will go. Might be tricky to convince them that you're interested in history when you haven't taken it to AS. Grades obviously exceptional though.

    Economics WITH economic history goes to the econ department.

    At a rather large disadvantage with your application. Bear in mind that other applicants will have AAAA at AS and 10 A* at GCSE.

    Absoulute zero. You do realise this is LSE not LSBU? Why would they take someone with a C in AS Maths when they'll have thousands of applicants with A grades across the board? They wouldn't, don't apply.

    The issue is that LSE look at your previous grades as well. If everyone who met their entry requirements got an offer they'd be oversubscribed 10:1.

    You can apply but it will be a very very very high risk. As ppl have said before, your AS and GCSE results are probably not good enough (but of course I wouldn't know since I'm an just an applicant). I would recommend looking at another uni instead of wasting the option, in my opinion.

    However, I applied to the same course with similar grades as you (the irony XD) though my Maths grade was an A, which they prefer although they don't mention it. If you really want to go there, I would strongly suggest to retake your AS Maths modules (and other subjects of course) and try to get the absolute best grades possible!

    The question in Admissions Officer's mind is this - you need to get 2 subjects up by 1 grade and another by 2 grades and A2 is more difficult so they may think it less likely for you to achieve AAA compared to many other applicants. Anyway, you can still try.
