    I really want to get into LSE Economics but the course is very competitive
    If I achieved 5As and 5Bs at GCSE and having 3As and a B at AS is it possible they will accept me?

    Worth a try! But it is, like you said very competitive.
    Someone in my year applied for Econmics too at LSE and got rejected.
    He had 7/8 A*s and 3 A's at GCSE.
    Along with 4 A's at AS Level.
    With predictions of A*AA!!

    Possibly his personal statement was what let him down. Most likely! As academically he was quite clearly fine. Possibly he didn't have much extra curricular etc.

    Don't let this out you off from applying. Someone in my year above is studying PPE at Oxford and he got very similar GCSE's to you!
