    Maths, Further Maths and Economics. I realise that taking 5 AS levels was a mistake as I feel like my AS results suffered. I also neglected maths quite a loy this year to focus on German and Spanish and didn't get much out of them ://

    Thanks, you too. LSE is so competitive, but it's literally the only university I want to go to because the course is so relevant to what I want to do in the future, hope we get in! What are you planning to do career wise.

    Yeah I know. I really want to get into LSE as well but I wouldn't mind UCL. And I'm looking to go into investment banking/consultancy/AM etc. I'm leaning towards investment banking the most. Trading to be exact, how about you?

    yeah lol , exactly the same. I wanted to go into IB as well , but I had work experience quite recently at Aberdeen Asset Management and I definitely wouldn't mind working there, the hours are much better than IB too. So yeah IB or AM, but leaning towards AM.
