    Wanting to study Economics in a decent university, I'm stuck between the facts that I'm not good enough for the best universities, and that i still can look forward to a great one.
    My grades are:

    GCE: 6As 3Bs 1C (As in Maths, Physics, Econ)
    AS: AABB (As in maths, physics. Bs in Chem and Eco but will do accel Eco this year and give a composite)
    Predicted A levels: A*AAA

    Basically i wish to land in a university with a good reputation for Economics, somewhere between LSE (top priority) and Lancaster. Thanks for any support.

    what other unis are you looking at? You can't rely on LSE as economics is very competitive there. Typically (other than Oxbridge) UCL, Warwick, St Andrews and Durham are all top for economics. So they're good options. Nottingham, Bath and Bristol are decent also.

    At the moment i was looking towards Leeds, Durham,Warwick, Lancaster and UCL. The thing is Lancaster is a very good university on it's own but it's not in the top 20 unis for economics. On the other hand, Leeds has a stronger position in economics, but not as highly ranked as Lancaster or the rest overall. Durham,Warwick and LSE are too competitive and most likely neither will accept.

    Nottingham, Bristol, Bath, exeter are all good options
