    2 A*s (Maths and Chem) 3As (Bio,Phys and CS) rest B's and C's
    AABC in AS in Maths Biology Chemistry and Further Maths (U in D1).
    Predicted A*AA for Maths FM Bio
    I think I can get A*A*A for Maths FM and Bio since I'm resitting D1 and I can likely get 90+ ums in it

    Options:
    Warwick Morse - A*AA
    Durham Natural Science - A*AA
    UCL Stats + Economics - AAA
    Nottingham Maths + Economics - AAA
    Bristol Maths + Economics - AAB (contextual)

    I wanted to apply to LSE Maths + Economics which has an offer of A*AA but with my GCSE's is it even worth a shot? Should I trade Durham for LSE? Warwick gives out alot of offers for maths and I prefer Warwick over Durham. Durham is only there incase I dont get an offer from Warwick

    The average no. of A*s for that course seems to be around 4/5 https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque...onomics_gl11_a

    Also seeing as you're eligible for bristol's contextual offer it seems like it'll be worth a shot as LSE will also see it and it'll ultimately play in your favour.

    They'll also see your UMS scores and if everything else is could maybe you have a shot.

    I think it's worth applying, it's only 1 place, make sure every other aspect of your application is good

    Yes definitely. The fact that your school is bad only means that theyll see your grades positively as its pretty good given your circumstances. The only issue they may take issue to is your AS grades, particularly the U in D1 which theyll see. I can't say whether that'll be a deal breaker for them but as I said since you have the contextual info on your side it's still worth a shot.

    Make sure your personal statement is good as that's important for LSE.

    I feel like your GCSEs might be less of a issue than the C at AS FM. If you're interested in MORSE maybe have a look at the Maths Stats and Business course at LSE - asks for 3 As and Further Maths is not required (but is accepted).
