Hi all,

I've been looking into some of the LSE courses I may potentially be wanting to apply to, these being 'Financial Mathematics and Statistics' and 'Mathematics and/with Economics', however I feel my GCSE grades are going to strongly let me down.

At GCSE I 'achieved' 988887665, for the fact of being the 'Covid year' so I just got the exact same as my Mock results (I was originally wanting to achieve 999988775 if I'd of been able to sit the exams). At A-Level I am taking Maths, Further Maths, Economics and History, and am aiming to achieve A*A*A*A respectively.

If I were to (theoretically) achieve these A-Level grades, would I still have at least somewhat of a decent/strong chance at getting an offer?

Definitely. Even top unis can look past your GCSE grades if you've shown exceptional development in your A level studies. Those grades are impressive even for someone who got top grades across the board at GCSE so it won't hurt your chances.
