    Do you think I should take a gamble and apply or play safe with AAA predictions and ABB AS grades?

    Any insights will be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Don't expect anything, but if you really have a free space available for LSE then why not.

    A*AA for Cambridge, surely AAA for LSE is fine?

    What about Law And Anthropology at LSE? Their requirements are AAB. If I apply to Law and get rejected, is there a chance I'll be offered a place for Law and Anthropology?

    LSE's entry requirement is A*AA. Applying without that as your predicted is just wasting a slot. OP's going to get rejected.

    Yes, even though bear in mind that most Law and Anthro people also have decent grades, and in most cases actually met the A*AA requirement (their first preference was straight law). The fact that an entry requirement is AAB doesn't mean that you'll be up against people who are only predicted that.

    Definitely not as hard to get into as Cambridge. Would say it's worth a shot. I know people at LSE with grades like yours, they got in just fine.

    Thanks for all your advice, especially JohnGreek.

    I've applied for law at LSE, purely on blind faith, In Shaa Allah. I know the chances are slim on getting in, but I've played safe with all my other choices and I couldn't resist

    Always worth a shot using a spare slot on applying for the country's best uni.

    And you can trust me when I call it that because I don't go there.

    And I'm seriously salty about it.
