It is, but it depends where you want to do it exactly HOW competitive it is.

Law at Oxbridge is probably very competitive though. But it probably won't be that bad for all unis.

It is competitive, but not as unattainable as people make out. I'm holding a conditional offer from Oxford at the moment (which I've screwed up, and so will take a year out and apply again) and it was fine. As long as you have a genuine interest in legal issues/current affairs, read a decent broadsheet a couple of times a week, it should be fine. I only really read one "law book" before my Ox interview, which was Geoffrey Rivlin's Understanding the Law. It's pretty excellent; it puts everything into simple, layman's terms and tells you how everything works. It kind of, makes the whole concept of the law and the legal/judiciary/political process less intimidating. I also flicked through Glanville Williams' Learning the Law. It's a bit dry though, only really good for referring to at this stage. That was about it, really. I'd say go down and meet the tutors well before you apply, and have a little chat with them if you have any queries. They're generally very nice and willing to help. And also, you should probably revise when it comes to your A Levels. Might help with the conditional offer :rolleyes:

(Apologies to everyone else for going off on this tangent and also for answering arctic monkey's question. Wait, did I? Arctic and Antarctica are too similar for simple-minded me)

Dangerous feeling just came upon me. It went like this:
I hope I don't make my grades. It will be exciting to do something crazy, unstructured and so on and so forth.
It was quickly quenched because I don't want to think of the alternatives yet or I will convince myself out of going to uni:p:

Dude, then you're well ahead of most people. Don't get too..rehearsed with the whole thing though. Keep doing what you're doing and thinking outside the box, both logically and abstractly. In the interviews they give you a ton of random questions you have to deal with. I got A*, A, A, A, A, A, B, B, B, C, C at GCSE. I was unwell though, and they took this into account. But even if your GCSE's aren't truly amazing, they don't care if the rest of you is good, e.g. PS, AS Levels, interviews, etc.

Time for bed for me. As likely as it is that Oblivion and Nemesis and other such Alton Towers-ness will wake me up no-end, I'd rather still be awake when I go to get my results.

Best of luck ladies and gents
