I’m really worried about applying for university. I would preferably like to attend a Russel group university, and study Law. I know that law is competitive and as are good universities, I’m worried that my GCSE’s aren’t up to the Russel group standard and that I won’t be made any offers. My GCSEs are : ABBCCCDD (76655433) higher grades in English, History. Do universities take GCSE’s massively into account?

I find they’re far more focused on A-levels and what you’re predicted to get in them, including your progress through them

Depends on your degree as for example, in physics they may expect a 6 in maths GCSE, but for law they may expect atleast a 5 for English but you’d had to do some research

I have a 7 in English, I can’t see many requirements specifically for law, they just ask for an essay based subject at A level. Thanks for the help

That would get you into great unis (maybe check individual uni requirements) and all three choices work in your favour

RG universities have different policies regarding GCSE's for Law. I suspect some might accept you but other wont. I am sure I remember seeing someone wanted 7 GCSE's above C. Check each university's entry requirements as that will be more accurate than anyone guessing on here.

Okay thanks! Top RG uni’s like UCL and Queen Mary’s ask for that, but for example Cardiff and Kent don’t specify at all, just wondering
