hi,
i have just finished my a levels, achieving A*AB, and i have just retaken the B to try and get an A*. i am planning on applying for politics / politics and IR for 2022 entry, but i always regretted not taking maths. if i took it as an AS during my gap year, could the unis give me an offer conditional on getting a good grade in the maths even if i have met the entry requirements. i am planning on applying to LSE, bristol, kings and UCL.

You’d have to check with them individually but academically the requirements are GCSES and A-levels not AS levels because the content and difficulty aren’t the same compared to the full two year course

You dont need Maths for a Politics course - assuming you meet any GCSE Maths requirement (and for Bristol there isnt any GCSE requirement).
It isnt going to make it anymore likely that you will get an offer, and if Unis dont want it it wont be part of any offer.

Make sure you check if unis accept resits for A Levels. A lot don’t, especially top unis.
