I’ve applied to KCL (PPE) and UCL (Politics and International Relations). I have yet to add my other three choices. I was thinking of applying to LSE as a long shot if I got accepted to one of the above unis. For KCL, what course have you been offered to study (PPE/Political Economy).

I did very little Politics (like 30%-40%)mainly because I wasn't planning on applying to anything but I'm only predicted a 6 in HL IB maths. On the website it says they're looking for 'an equal interest' so I'm fairly sure that's the one thing that would hold my application back :/ wbu?
