    Supposedly, LSE attracts many international students. (My Economics teacher said that for this reason, it is hard to make friends.) How has this affected your ability to socialise and form new friendships with fellow undergraduates? Has there ever been a point in time at which you have felt incredibly lonely?

    Ultimately, what attracted you to LSE (to study, I presume, Economics)? I personally am thinking of applying to Cambridge/Oxford, LSE, Warwick and UCL (although these are subject to change), but I don't know which one is most preferable. Understandably it's a variety of factors, but which do you believe is the most crucial?

    What subjects did you study at A level? Did you take Economics A level and, if applicable, did you choose to investigate something Economics-related in your EPQ? What grades were you predicted and what did you later achieve? How did you make your personal statement stand out?

    What is the residence like in which you currently live, both in terms of cost and quality (or cost in relation to quality)?

    Finally, what is the workload like at LSE? I take Econmics A level - to what extent does the A level course overlap the first year of Economics at LSE? I also take Further Maths - has there been any advanced application of Mathematics? In general, is the workload at least bearable?

    Many thanks for your time - I appreciate a lot has been asked!

    My GCSEs were 4A* and 5As, I think LSE aren't overly worried about GCSEs, as long as you have a decent set, your A-Levels are obviously way more important
