    I would really like to receive an offer for the LLB Law degree at Bristol, however I am unsure whether I have a chance regarding my GCSE grades...
    I got: A* A* A A B B B C C C D
    I am aware that this will be far below the average applicant for law at bristol, and that they regard these grades as 20% of the application, however, I was wondering if anyone has recieved an offer for law at Bristol in a similar situation?

    Also, I achieved three As (in English Lit, Law, and Psychology) and a B (in Philosophy) in my AS levels- would this alter my chances of getting an offer in any way?

    Thank you very much

    They say that they only care about how many of your GCSEs are above a C, but I don't really believe that.

    Good job looking up their weightings. You've seen then that your A-levels are twice as important as GCSEs, your LNAT is more important than GCSEs, and you personal statement is nearly as important as your GCSEs.

    Bristol gives offers to 70% of its Law applicants (http://university.which.co.uk/univer...00-m100-426219). I think you would get an offer.

    It's not in anyone's interest for universities to mislead students about entry requirements. It would waste their time and the applicant's time.
