    I'm going to be applying this year to LSE/UCL and Manchester for anthropology.
    I'll be applying with an A (that I've already taken) and two predicted A's. Does anyone know who goes to LSE/UCL how difficult it is to get in? and how likely I am to get an offer?
    My GCSE's are 6 A's, 2 Bs and 1 C, however the C is in maths and LSE ask for that to be at least a B.
    Thankyou!!

    You have to be taking at least 3 A-levels in one sitting, so if you've already done one, and are only taking 2 this year, than UCL and LSE won't look very highly on that.

    When you're competing with people who are doing 3 or 4 A levels in one sitting, you won't look like you have enough academic stamina.

    You'll also be competing for places against people who will mostly have at least 5A*s at GCSE.

    By all means apply, and make sure that your personal statement is amazing, but don't get your hopes up.

    ENGLISH LANGUAGE:A
    RELIGIOUS STUDIES (ISLAMIAT):A
    PAKISTAN STUDIES: (HISTORY+GEOGRAPHY)A
    WORLD HISTORY:A
    URDU LANGUAGE:B
