    Thank you, that's very nice of you. 24 is above average. Even if it's a few points above, it's still above. From what I remember, KCL were taking at 25 or something last year. Also, my understanding is that Exeter is very highly regarded, so my sense is you might have done well applying to other London universities and taking a shot on the non-LNATs such as the likes of LSE perhaps.

    3 offers out of 5. That's something to focus on. All is not lost . These universities are not dumb; they will always look at the whole picture and again, you are above average on the LNAT. Don't be so hard on yourself, yo.
    Thanks man! I feel like I'm single-handedly clogging this thread with responses so I think I'll leave it at that ahah

    Congrats again, good luck with everything!

    Thanks very much. And keep posting. I'm especially going to keep a look-out for that KCL offer coming your way.

    I'm a first-year Law student guys, and I can assure you that Law departments do take their time responding back to you. Last year, I received all my offers all the way up to late February (28 Feb to be exact)! So don't worry

    For anyone interested, King's College accepted people with 2A* and an A in through adjustment last year. Not sure if this will be the case this year though..

    Can a university go into adjustment without going through clearing? Also do you know if Nottingham have gone into clearing in the last couple of years as I can't seem to find anything on it online

    Thanks! Received the King's offer this morning so only LSE to go now. LNAT 28 & GCSE 8A*'s and 2A's. Also when did you send your application?
    Ahh well done! You did so much better, I'm sure you'' get LSE as well I sent my UCAS off in the first week of October. You?

    Congrats! When did you apply & what are your grades/LNAT if you don't mind me asking?
    I applied in November and my offer is A*AA for both. My grades are ok with predicted A*A*A for A-level and 11A*'s for GCSE. But my LNAT was pretty bad, only got 22 in the MQ. But my essay didn't go too badly I don't think. Good luck!

    That's amazing, congratulations! You must've had a really strong application in other areas? Do you mind me asking what you got at AS?
    I'm so worried about KCL, I applied in October with poor LNAT (24) and AS results, but you've given me back a tiny bit of hope aha, congrats again!
    Thanks! I didn't think my application was too strong, UCL was definitely a long-shot. My AS were AAAAB and I'm predicted A*A*A. My GCSE's were 11A*'s. You should have hope, 24 is still above average! Good luck.

    I'll copy what they said in their rejection email haha.
    It's about my PS but they never said specifically which part went wrong.

    The feedback we have received from the Admissions Selector indicates that your application was unsuccessful as consequence of your personal statement. As competition for places at LSE is intense, the Personal Statement is considered carefully when deciding whether to make an offer. Your personal statement, when compared to those of similar applicants, was not sufficiently convincing to be offered a place.

    Another odd thing is that one of the mature girls' college in Cambridge (not the one I applied to ) wrote me an email encouraging me to re-apply to their college next year cuz they couldn't offer me a place this year( probably cuz I'm not 21 yet).
    can we please have an honest discussion about this? i honestly don't blame LSE for rejecting you and those like you. I mean you're fresh out of school, you've never had a proper day's job, you don't read legal material, you've never gone to your local courts, you've never done barrister shadowing, you don't know how to draft legal documents and your only source of passion for law is the tv show Suits? how fantastic can your UCAS statement be? needless to say, the outcome is obvious?

    as for cambridge it has nothing to do with your age. most Oxbridge students apply 1 year/a window cycle before they actually start uni proper. as a result of this sly manoeuvre, outstanding students like you who apply in the year that you want to start uni will often have to face extremely stiff competition from other equally spectacular students.

    you're still young so if you need to take a gap year then do it. if it means you get into a better uni according to your beliefs, then do it. but don't get into the sick vicious cycle of applying more than 3 times in 3 consecutive years just so you can get into a better uni. i know many people who have done that. in some cases, it payed off. in other cases, some of those friends of mine simply did not have the desire to purse law anymore and simply did another course altogether.

    if you think that the top unis are very good in terms of teaching quality then you're gravely mistaken. i did a post on this so click on my profile to view my previous posts and you will discover a wealth of information.

    and this really bears repeating. i really don't see any significant difference between your remaining 3 choices. I'll go for QMUL if i were you. Only cos QMUL sounds nice than say Bristol or Durham

    do update us here on how things pan out for you.

    GCSEs: 2 A*, 5 A, 2 B and 1 CAS: ABCD (I also already have A Level Polish at grade B)They are taking so long, but it's reassuring to see that a lot of people are still waiting.
    nottingham has always been very slow.

    I'm Singaporean too and I know quite a number of people (singaporean, specifically) who went to Bristol, and their friend circle literally comprises of Singaporeans only. Which if you're interested in, go ahead, but ultimately it's your decision really. I'd say go for Durham or QM!
    which unis did you apply to and have you gotten any offers? did you do A levels or the IB? what were your grades and what was your LNAT score?

    Um, I applied to Bristol/UCL/KCL/LSE/Durham. So far I've only got an offer from Bristol and rejections from both UCL and KCL (on the basis of my LNAT - I got 23.) I'm currently doing my a levels in uk but my predicted grades are A*A*A (+A* in EPQ if that counts)

    Commiserations (if they were your first choice). Well at least I'm not in the waiting game alone! Hopefully an offer comes soon!

    Nottingham haven't been in clearing for law in years. Last year I do remember seeing Warwick, Manchester and a few others in clearing.

    Does anybody know whether the law lecturers are better at Leicester or Surrey? Trying to decide between the two. I prefer the 'feel' of Leicester, but I've heard that Leicester aren't good at giving feedback - I don't know whether that applies to the law department or the lecturers at Leicester in general, though.

    I'm also stuck between the two because of Surrey's placement year. I know that Leicester offers study abroad options, but I'm not sure if they offer work placements and, if they do, if they are as good as Surrey's? Surrey seems to be really involved in what the student is doing and making sure that they are progressing effectively.

    I prefer the modules at Leicester, though, and I am leaning towards Leicester more as a place and university in general, but I'm just wondering whether I will get more out of a law degree at Surrey (in terms of employability)

    If you want an honest discussion, maybes you shouldn't have so many assumptions. Well, I completed my 4-year high school education in Singapore. I have actually been to the local courts and did a job-shadowing in a local top law firm. I read a few relevant books which I borrowed from a local uni's law library. I believe I have honestly stated my reasons and tried to show my passion for law. I am serious about taking the course. But I guess I was just not good enough. English is my second language and I am still not confident in my expression.

    I am not blaming anyone but honestly feel a bit clueless about why my PS was not good. My teacher thought my PS was quite clear in showing who I am, so I think maybe there are just too many other competitive applicants who are obviously better than me.

    Does anyone know whether Bristol have allocated the bulk of their offers yet? It certainly seems as though a lot of people are receiving offers.

    has anyone who has applied for English Law (LLB) and French Law (Master) at KCL received an offer yet? A whole lot of offers/rejections seem to be going out for straight Law (LLB) but I have yet to meet one person applying for this particular course!
