In 2018, my predicted grades were 4A* in maths,Fmaths,phy,econ, and got rejected due to my PS. So I worked extremely hard and got 3A*1A and rewrite my PS, but still got rejected again 2 days ago. RN I feel like my future is not very good..

I am currently studying econ at KCL, but the course isn't very good.

That's probably why you were rejected the second time since you were already studying at a different university, albeit your application looks very strong.

Don't allow all your hopes for the future to rest solely upon whether lse offer you a place.
Your qualifications are very strong and your application to study economics at Kings was successful.
Plenty of academic institutions will be eager to welcome you.
You have so much potential- for employers as well as unis.
I believe that your future will be bright, so long as you don't stop believing in yourself and always keep/present a positive attitude.

I doubt you were rejected by lse solely due to your PS.
Once any minimum academic entrance criteria is met, many unis often seek to target a particular type of student (personality/demographic/parental educational experience).
When it comes to sampling institutional culture/ campus social atmosphere, it often becomes obvious to see whether there is a good fit or obvious incompatibility between the uni and individual student applicant.
What is it about your current economics course that puts you off?

Kcl's main drawback is students aren't very driven and motivated which makes me less driven over time.

The main reason why I got good alevel grades was because I had a group of friends who were very driven and competitive.

Beware the dangers of making casual assumptions about other people's motivation.
Three weeks before exams, most of those same people will be revising as if they fear being bitten by the rabid dog of exam failure.
By the end of first term third year, competitive instincts will be going into overdrive- the atmosphere will be one of high pressure, cut throat rivalry and icy ambition.
No hyperbole; just what I've seen over the years at half of the russell group and the students of London economics/law/history/science/theology departments.

I know some Chinese (from Shanghai) whose PS were written by an agency and got an offer with B or C in A level.


LSE should rethink why such things happen.


I.e. LSE is not as prestigious as it sounds like

LSE does not like reapplicants. Dont take it personally. Get into Warwick and youre good. Yeah King's isnt too great. I have it as my insurance and my friend studies law @ King's and she hates it too.
