Hi,
I need a realistic and entirely factual opinion on my stance at getting offers from the best Universities.
I have high prospects for 4 As in my AS Levels (Maths, Further Maths, Economics & Psychology)
On the Contrary, my GCSEs were frankly not ideal specifically for Grammar education: 4A*, 5A, 5B.
Looking to apply to Cambridge for 'Economics' and LSE for 'Maths & Economics' as my top ones. Was hoping to get some professional advice on where I stand assuming I attain 4As in my AS Levels but with not so good GCSEs.

4 A* 5 As is bad? You have some of the top grades in the country considering the average is C+. Maths and Econ is an obscure course at UCL and has less applicants than straight Econ. There are people on that that only got 1-2 As. You will be fine. At Cambridge, there's a lot of emphasis on the exam and interview. There are people who got 13 A* at GCSE not getting in but and people with MUCH lower that get in from doing exceptionally in the interview and testing stage.

Seriously, your GCSEs are really really good. And with 4As at AS you have nothing stopping you getting into Oxbridge, UCL, LSE etc.
