Hi, I am currently studying in class 12 India. I plan to apply for BSc Economics. I have 95.2 percent in class 10 and 96.6(predicted class 12). How likely do you think I am to get an offer from LSE and KCL. Also, what do you think would be the required class 12 percentage as per the conditional offer if I get one?

Impossible to say how likely they are to make you an offer as it depends on other aspects of your application such as your personal statement.

LSE's general entry requirements for applicants with Indian quals are here:
https://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/i...ry-pages/india

Not specific to Econ but "A*AA = An overall average of 90% or above, with 3 subjects at 95% or above and 2 subjects at 90% or above"

KCL likely to be similar.

Why do you need views? You have the link to the LSE answer.

I would note that if you want to confirm the specific Econ offer for Class XII applicants for either uni you can just ring them up and ask them.

The KCL offer looks to be "Indian High School Leaving Certificate (from CBSE and CISCE boards only) from Standard XII with 90% overall" + 85% in Maths.

It's stated on the Econ course page:

Hey I’m from India too and applied for the same. It seems you have the right marks to get admitted so that’s not a problem. The only thing that matters is your personal statement as I’ve seen Oxbridge offer holders rejected by LSE. Considering your cbse 10th and predicted, you have high chance. Also I would suggest you include Warwick and UCL and remove KCL as kings econ dept is fairly new and it’s subject ranking is not high and also it’s £28k compared to £22k for us.

I have included UCL as well. I added KCL because of the prestige- even though the department is new, it doesn't mean it's not good.

These are the minimum requirements. I think the colleges give conditional offers with higher percentages than these.

Call them up to check if that is the case. The offers given to other candidates could be affected by many factors and may not reflect an offer that you might receive.

Academically you are a strong candidate so I am not sure why you are second guessing the outcome. You should just apply, you have three more choices for less competitive options.

Hoping for the best. Other three choices are UCL, QMUL, and Nottingham.
