    What do you do in London in your free time?
    Why does everyone portray LSE as a place with very low student satisfaction?
    Do you have any idea what a History course is like at LSE?

    I hope you pass it too! I'm sure you'll be more than fine. Very competitive but if you're passionate enough you have every chance. Any more questions, just ask
    I got these grades in igcses(which are supposedly harder than normal gcses):
    BIOLOGY:A*
    CHEMISTRY:A*
    PHYSICS:A*
    MATHEMATICS:A*
    ENGLISH LANGUAGE:A
    RELIGIOUS STUDIES (ISLAMIAT):A
    PAKISTAN STUDIES: (HISTORY+GEOGRAPHY)A
    WORLD HISTORY:A
    URDU LANGUAGE:B
    Which unis will be fine for me considering this igcse result? Is LSE okay for me considering I want to do either engineering or medicine? Are Kings and Imperial a good choice?
    Editschool only offered 9 igcses.Will that disadvantage me as I could have gotten more A/A*.

    Those are good grades and I'm sure they'd be competitive for those unis (just remember though, I'm only a second year uni student- ask your teachers or call the uni!)

    LSE doesn't do engineering or medicine, as it's only a social sciences university. Imperial will do engineering but as far as I know, not medicine. I think Kings does both? I'd check it a prospectus.

    Hi again, so sorry to bother, but I was wondering that my subjects are Econ, Maths, Business + AS Further Maths. I've told you that my predicted will probably be A*A*A + A(AS), but the subject combo is really stressing me out.
    Do you reckon it's ok and I can compensate in my PS/references? Or should I just not bother applying? Do you have people with similar combinations who were successful at LSE?

    I do know people who had similar combos and got in. My boyfriend studies finance at LSE, so I've just asked him and he warned me to tell you to avoid business studies; as an AS it's probably fine but maybe not to full A-level

    Ah, okay, thank you so much for everything!
