Will I be able to enter LSE (of any other target uni) for an Econ/Finance related course with these A-Levels and grades?

A*A*A a math bio chem FM(as) respectively

These are the subjects I enjoyed throughout GCSE, and continue to enjoy studying at A-Level. I recognize that perhaps an essay subject would've been conducive to me matriculating at a prestigious insutition. That being said, I feel these are very respected A-levels, they are all heavily quantitative, with the exclusion of Biology. What other things could I do to increase my chances of landing a spot? Work experience at a bank? Starting an econ club?....

Those are all good a-levels and you should have a good chance at being accepted.

LSE in particular and other similar universities really like strong maths skills for economics and finance, so if there is any way that you can do further maths A-level then this would be good to have.

As you've already said, you may be lacking in writing skills due to not doing an essay writing subject. You could maybe have a look and see if there are any economics related essay competitions that you could enter which would really add to your personal statement. Reading around the subject is also a good idea. Obviously work experience is great too if you're able to get any.

Thank you very much for taking your time to respond.

I will look into writing competitions and consider publishing some articles in a journal if possible Yes, you are right about the writing skills, none of my A-levels demostrate my writing ability, though I did get 9,8 in lang and lit respectively; though I'm sure that is the norm for LSE applicants!
