Hi Guys! I'm applying to UK unis as an intl student. So far I've chosen:
1. LSE Management
2. UCL Management science
3. KCL Economics & Management and Business Management

I still have space left for 1 more course but I don't know which one to choose between LSE Finance and UCL Economics.
My O-Levels aren't that great with 4As 1B 3C 1D (A in Math and Eng)
AS are ABB (got decreased do the way my school predicted the grades)
A_level: A*AB (B in math, giving it again in MJ22 Predicted A/A*)
I know I'm not a strong candidate for any of these courses, but between the last LSE and UCL course which do you guys think I should go for? I've written Business-Related degree throughout my PS and never mentioned management explicitly since it's called something different at every uni, so would that be an issue for a finance or econ degree?

Hope to receive some guidance.

Thank you!

If your predicted/achieved grades are below the entry requirements by more than one grade (and not in a vital subject) then you need to rethink. Those are mega-competitive courses at mega-competitive Unis. If you are below the entry requirements in all of them, then you risk 4 straight rejections. I'd advise you to have a least 2 safer options - look at courses at City, and other Unis that are near London but not in it - Brighton, Sussex etc.

Ond subject needs an A*AA and the others need AAA. All I lack is an A in math that's why I'm giving it again since I got a B. But what about the way I wrote my PS, do you think they may see that as an issue since it doesn't mention any of the degrees by their specific name?

Not mentioning the degree names won't be an issue; as mentioned above, your grades will be.

Why only those 3 universities?

I would pick a safe option for your 5th choice just in case the B doesn’t go up to an A
