    If I apply to LSE with A*AA in Economics, Maths, Business Studies and an A in AS Further Maths, will my application be considered competitive?
    I am applying for BSc Accounting & Finance and I have strong extracurriculars.
    Another alternative is Economics, Pure Maths, Business Studies with A*A*A?

    You are in the mix. They will also look at the rest of your application.


    Academic achievement

    Successful applicants for this programme are usually predicted a minimum of A A A in their A levels (or 38 and above International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) points, with 6 6 6 in higher level subjects). Mathematics A level or IB HL (or equivalent) is desirable but is not essential for this programme. However, if Mathematics is not taken as an A level, applicants must have achieved at least an A grade at GCSE (or equivalent).

    In addition, students will also have already achieved a good set of GCSE grades or equivalent across a broad range of subjects, with a minimum of grade B in GSCE English and Mathematics or equivalent.

    Competition for places at the School is high. This means that even if you are predicted or if you achieve the grades that meet our usual standard offer, this will not guarantee you an offer of admission. Usual standard offers are intended only as a guide, and in some cases applicants will be asked for grades which differ from this.
