    Hi guys, looking for some advice, I intend on applying for the above course.

    My grades: 10 A* GCSE, 3A AS level (govpol, econ, geography) and 1B (maths) will drop geography and be predicted A*AA. Also done GCSE russian (A*) and arabic (A).

    What are my chances with these grades?

    Any feedback is much appreciated, having a tough time making my decision
    Cheers

    Sounds pretty good to me!
    Just make sure your personal statement and references match up to your good grades, since they don't take interviews.
    I think you could potentially get an offer from LSE =D

    As Lse look through personal statements thoroughly, do you guys think mentioning Only Economics in my ps , as that's the course I'm applying to at other Uni's,will hinder my application

    The LSE website clearly states that if ur doing a joint honours course they would like to see evidence of interest in both subjects- they even go as far as to mentioning government and econ specifically thus i think it would be wise to mention both subjects
