I'm a little confused about who's replying to whom at the moment, but in the spirit of trying to help, I'll offer what answer I can to this.(Original post by CaitlinStevens)
Wow that's really helpful! I hope not, I mean I got AABB when I was predicted ABBC/ABCC, probably because of my GCSEs, which just proves how hard I've worked to get what I got for AS. I know that I could get AAA or even A*AA (although this is unlikely) if I work really hard this year, which I am more than willing to do. My predicted grades are AAA but I'm unsure as to whether or not Oxford will take my circumstances into account - I do have proof of my mental health issues and also about my potential aka my excellent results in comparison to my previous predicted grades. I'm planning on taking a gap year anyway and so would apply this time next year!
If you don't mind me asking, what is the test you take before studying Law and how hard is it/what sort of questions do you get asked?
I can't help about extenuating circumstances. I chose not to declare any as I didn't personally see any need to do so. All I can say is, if you get there, the tutors were absolutely fantastic in helping with any problem.
The test is the LNAT. It's mostly a sort of advanced reading comprehension, with emphasis on 'logical' reasoning from the texts. You're given a number of passages (on a wide range of topics, but no knowledge of law is needed) which are designed to replicate the density of a university-level text. Then there is an essay in response to one of a few question which you'll be given. Again, the subject matter is non-legal and fairly mundane, as they want to see your ability to write (and the attendant qualities thereof), not test your general knowledge.
