    Hi there,
    I just started off with my alevels and at the moment I am doing Physics Maths and Economics.
    I am an international student as I came to the Uk in year 10. Therefore, I was only able to do 10 GCSE'S and got 2A* 4A and 2Bs.
    If i can pull off a prediction of 2 A*s and 1A or 3 A*s..what are my chances of getting into my top 5 which are as followed:-
    •LSE-economics
    •Warwick-economics
    •UCL-economics
    •LSE-accounting
    •Durham-economics

    Also let me know what cud i also do to increase my chances

    LSE are very particular about their PSs. You are likely to get rejected with a PS talking about economics I'm afraid

    You will get rejected by LSE if your personal statement is not about accounting.

    I'm not an economics person, so I don't know the ins and outs of the requirements for the unis - only knowledge of PSs

    it's ALOT of effort with the exam centre and is pointless if you're enrolled at a sixth form/college.

    It isn't. Your offers can be reduced with FM.

    You could do AS FM now, would just be FP1 and 2 applied units, if you have done FM GCSE this shouldn't be alien.

    What are you currently doing privately?
