yeah i don't think any of us are as naive as you think we are. ofc we know LSE is competitive, its one of the best unis in the country. Based on their grades, they do have a good chance along with other factors like their personal statement. im not saying that they are highly likely to get in, im saying they have quite a good chance purely because of their grades, so don't be patronising. LSE is highly focused on the personal statement and this is the factor that most people get rejected for. My brother goes to LSE for Mathematics and he just met the entry requirements, got similar GCSES to the original commenter and clearly had a great personal statement!
