    I NEED AN OPINION!!
    I got ABBB at AS and my teachers have predicted me ABB (rather annoyingly) at A2. My GCSEs are good - 5A* 5As and I've got a good (I think) ps and good references. My original uni list was Notts, Warwick, York, Birmingham (didnt have a last one yet aha) but when I got my predicted grades I didn't really know what to do because they weren't good enough. After panicking and crying and feeling generally dejected, after talking to many people I've emailed a bunch of universities that I would be interested in, asking if they would make me an offer based on my predicted grades even if they don't meet the entry requirements.

    SO my list now stands at:

    Liverpool: ABB Southampton: AAA (but they said my grades are fine for them to make a decision on) Sheffield: AAA (but they said my grades are fine and I should apply) Leicester: AAA (said the same thing) Birmingham: AAA - said that they would be happy to consider me as they often give students the benefit of the doubt regarding grades and even more so if I had a good LNAT)

    There's still places like Manchester who have said the same thing, and Lancaster too and I haven't looked at Essex. But is my list more sensible do you think? or should I choose another uni that wants BBB? (But they wouldn't be the best for Law) HELP!

    I think what you've decided to do is probably the best option by far. Well done firstly! I would say don't apply for BBB university because that might make you fairly unemployable without sounding harsh. Aim high and see where that takes you
