At GCSE I achieved 5 9s 1 8 and 3 7s with a 6 in french.
Currently predicted A*A*A* in history, economics and maths.
I cant really predict how I’m going to do on the LNAT but lets assume I do well, what are my chances of getting a interview at Oxbridge or offer at LSE/UCL
Also what other universities should I apply to ?


Thanks

If your predicted A-Level grades are actually that high then you will very likely be offered an interview. To prepare for these interviews i would suggest as much “around the topic reading” and wider reading of books, which you can remember and recall during an interview, or documentaries and podcasts. It shows how committed you are to the subject and will improve your interviews. hope this helps

i'm pretty sure oxford wants 8s/9s across the board, not sure tho. a good lnat i think is roughly 27 so i think you'd get interviewed tbh

maybe also consider durham, notts, bristol and kcl

the average applicant has less, but the average offer holder has 9/10 A*

Im probably going to end up applying to cambridge anyways.
Also my secondary school is in one of the most poorest boroughs of london so does that help (my sixth form is also there but its pretty well known)

yeah that's definitely useful since oxford contextualises your grades in comparison to your school's performance

Cambridge definitely look contextually aswell. They both also view 8s and 9s as A*s, and, therefore, equally.

Didn’t mean to respond directly to you and didn’t even realise anything you said needed correction; sorry if it came off like that. I just quoted a comment randomly and responded to the general conversation haha.
