    Hi,

    I've applied for Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at LSE but am worried as to how they choose who gets a place because there are 140 applicants but only 18 accepted applicants in 2015 (and I presume that the number of offers they give out isn't much higher, right?). And since they don't interview or hold tests or even ask for AS module results, how do they distinguish between applicants. My grades are: 10A*s at GCSE, 3A* prediction (in economics, maths and RS) and straight A's at AS level but surely there will be a good number of applicants with similar grades?

    Surely it would be kind of weird to accept people based on their personal statement or reference surely because these can vary hugely according to external factors that may not be down to the applicant's actual ability e.g. lied about what stuff they read or having a good reference because you come from a good school who knows how to write them.

    Also, I'm a home student, will that put me at a disadvantage?

    Thanks
