    @collegemom3717 can you please advise me? I am struggling to clearly understand the LSE offer. It states “ Grade 5, 5 in US AP Plus provide certified documentation of your previous qualifications.”

    I am a Canadian student who already has 5s in three APs courses and will be taking 3 more next month. My counsellor thinks they are referring to the ones I have taken and providing high school diploma as AP is not a requirement for Canadians. But I think they are asking me to obtain 5s in 2 more APs. They didn’t specify which subject so should I assume any out of the two?
    Thank you for your help

    you’re right and your counsellor is wrong. they want 5 x 5 APs In all, so want you to provide your official certification for the three you already have, and two more in due course, and obviously you already have any required subjects for your course.

    ^^what @Conformist1688 said. LSE's standard offer for students applying with APs is 5 5's. Good news- they aren't specifying which 2 of the 3 you are taking. Less wonderful news: you should deposit someplace else (guessing SFS) just in case.

    Thank you @Conformist1688 and @collegemom3717

    I do plan to place a deposit at SFS and I also have Kings College as unconditional insurance.

    Thank you @collegemom3717

    I like my guidance counselor but I think she gets confused with the LSE and doesn't get it. Now she thinks I need 5s in all three AP courses i.e., AP EuoHistory, AP Macro and AP Micro. The offer says “Grade 5, 5 in US AP Plus provide certified documentation of your previous qualifications.” But she thinks LSE considers AP Macro and Micro as 1 AP. However, you had mentioned last year that there were no distinctions. While I hope to get 5s in all three APs I am taking, I am focusing more on Euro and Macro. Can you please advise?

    The conditional offer is literal. If they wanted 3 more 5's they would say that.

    You have listed them to receive your score report?

    You letter specifies only the 5 in AP US (or Euro- not clear from your post) plus confirmation of existing scores? that's all you need.

    I interpreted it as two fives in US AP courses (not AP USH) as per post #93. And if they don't specify which courses then any 2 of the 3 you are taking is fine. In other words five 5s total.

    On a re-read, I agree with @Twoin18 - I assumed it was USHx. Two more 5s.

    Update on AP scores: I got a 5 in AP Euro and another 5 in AP Macro thus meeting the conditions for LSE. Collegeboard sent my report on June 24th to LSE but I am yet to receive an unconditional offer. Quite nervous and anxious!

    Congrats, @bestuni2019! no need to worry- most of the staff is probably is on holiday. From their point of view, this is the quiet before the storm: A-level results come out 15 August :-)
