    Hello everyone!
    I am a student seeking to study a undergraduate degree in Politics & IR.
    In my GCSE's I got 5B's, 3A's and 2A*'s. However, in my AS results i got the following:
    Geography - A (192/200 UMS)
    History - A (200/200 UMS)
    Business Studies - A (190/200)
    Economics - A (177/200)

    As you can see, I performed substantially better in my AS grades and I am now predicted 3A*'s at A2 level.However, my GCSE grades concern me when aiming for the top universities.

    Do you think I would stand a chance if I apply to LSE? Likewise with King's College and Warwick? Particularly because I have tended to find that the calibre of people applying have mostly over 5 A*'s at GCSE. In contrast, maybe my improvement into Sixth Form would be welcomed and looked upon favourably by Universities?

    I'd appreciate any advice and opinions. Thanks in advance.

    LSE would be very risky, they like to look at GCSE's a lot. Not sure about KCL and Warwick but I don't think they'll mind considering your AS's. Give the admissions tutors an email if you are still worried
