    I really want to study within London on a degree from a top university with an international focus. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot of choice when its comes to this. I am already applying to UCL, for the IMB course, but would also like to apply to LSE for management. However, I do not meet the A level mathematics requirement. I was wondering if you think I stand any chance of applying to LSE for the International Relations course even though my PS is made with business in mind (although it does focus on international business and entrepreneurship)?

    Fair enough! (Do you know if LSE requires A level mathematics for their management course even if you didn't study A levels? I read on their website that they accept Access to HE but I don't see how one would meet the math requirement doing this.)

    What are you currently studying? I think that there are certain foreign qualifications that LSE doesn't trust, and therefore forces you to study an equivalent A-level as part of your offer. For instance, for the Greek high school exams, you have to have a certain average in those exams + an A* or A in A-level Maths.

    I presume you've looked through the 'Maths and Further Maths' subsection on this page: http://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/Un...y-Requirements

    I have done similar, i've applied for LSE IR, UCL IMB and KCL international management. The way i see it, it is worth a go. Whats A-Levels did you do/predicted.
