How much of a chance do I have (for courses requiring AAB/AAA).

These are grades already achieved

LSE have many applicants who meet their grade requirements and even surpass it, so I believe your chance will depend a lot more on your GCSEs, references and personal statement rather than your grades.

Those are stellar grades and your A level grades also certainly meet the mark. Up to this point I see no reason for LSE not to give you an offer however they will still look at your references and personal statement so do make sure those are as good as your grades and you should be set!

As mentioned, great GCSE and since you already achieved the AAA requirement so you could be at an advantage. Down to PS and references. Cant make any obvious errors whether in grammar or saying some technical term wrong. That would automatically screw you,
you could get your ex-(english)teacher to help you, if you liked her/him. Thats what im doing.

There are one or two, language, culture and society require AAB, and quite a few courses (I'd say around a third) require AAA. I'm interested in the international relations course

Good idea. I also didn't mention that I got an E in one of my A levels, I feel this will disadvantage me somewhat. Could this be a reason to reject me? Thanks again

AHhh yes I never looked at those language culture courses! AAA is the most typical offer in my eyes, unless it's something to do with economics or maths in which case it gets to A*AA with A* in maths.

So wait, you got AAAE? Or you got an E and then retook the A level? Depending on what it was, it could disadvantage you imo.

No I just got an E in one of my A levels, which I can't retake as it was the last year before the new linear system.

Yeah, I thought it won't be a problem as they ask for 3 A levels, but you think this could disadvantage me?

But I dont think it works like that.

I could just take 5 A levels and see where Im naturally good and get 3 As and the rest Es and Us. You should call them up and actually check with an admissions person. They give offers based on 3 usually. The only case where they take into account a fourth one is with FM. But since you actually got 4 results and it's not a B or something similar, idk if it'll cause issues. Maybe it will but maybe not. Im not exactly sure.

It was in maths, which isn't required for any of the courses I'd apply for. The other three A levels I took are all listed on the recommended subject combinations on the LSE website

LSE really likes their maths regardless of what it is; even for Accounting and Finance Maths at A level is not required but recommended and everyone knows it's necessary. Getting that grade in maths is not good at all tbh. But double check with admissions

It's worth bearing in mind IR is one of their most popular (and hence competitive) courses, after their Economics suite and Law. Along with the E in the 4th A-level, it's technically possible but you would need an outstanding personal statement alongside that to be a real consideration.

LSE usually gives offers for 3 A levels, unless it's FM as far as I know. But the fact he got an E in maths will probably make an impact on their decision, right?
