    UCL's given most of its offers out, and has had its interviews for those doing Law with a foreign legal system on the 20th. KCL hasn't really gotten back to anyone who hasn't applied for a scholarship, or who hasn't applied with achieved A-Level/IB grades.
    How do you know ucl has given most of them out?

    I feel as though you have just presumed from what you read on here, either that or you work for the university....

    Nope, visited the offer holders' day and asked the admissions staff themselves during the meet-and-greet.

    Do not fall for the Birmingham unconditional trick. The only reason some Unis give unconditional is because they know there will be places left in clearing. Last year I did a lot of realtime research during clearing for all unis offering law courses that I might be interested in. Birmingham was in clearing both from the beginning of IB results day and A level results day. That tells me you will highly likely get it in clearing anyway, especially as they have already given you an offer. Therefore don´t waste your chance of a hard earned place at UCL or Bristol which would never be in clearing.
    is there a reason why birmingham always ends up in Clearing year in year out? birmingham acts very tough with it's entry requirements but in Clearing they've been known to let people in who've missed their grades. so why the pretense in the first place?

    Well, if that is the case, am I screwed? I mean, I have been waiting for UCL since November 18th. I hope they will get back to me soon

    Its all about branding and image and where they position their standard offer. There are lot of tripple A unis that are perceived to be better therefore rarely are they one of the 5 choices so will always end in clearing. They are just trying to move up by raising image by setting high grades. For QMUL the strategy has been successful but not for Birmingham so far

    "A lot" doesn't have anything to do with proportion. I originally said this:

    "UCL's given most of its offers out, and has had its interviews for those doing Law with a foreign legal system on the 20th."

    That's not to say that no one is going to get an offer for Law from now onward, just that most of their offers have apparently been given out already. However, the exact number of offers that remain to be given remains unknown, so, as is the case with the other London unis, people should stop reading too much into it and see what happens

    I have friends in SOAS, Kings, LSE, UCL, QM and Oxbridge and I've just asked all of them on whatsapp. funnily enough they all say that it has something to do with Birmingham's landscape in terms of the community enclaves there?? i've just replied to them to ask them what has community enclaves got to do with tons of vacant places on Birmingham's LLB course! my friends are really absurd.

    Is it significant that Birmingham sent me an email saying they are still reviewing my application? Did anyone else get this just before a response?

    Its just 'marketing' to reassure you that they haven't forgotten you.
    It doesn't mean anything significant.
