    a levels in my sig
    LNAT find out 31st jan
    extra curriculars: nothing really relevant and I don't think they care at all, really.

    I did debating at school if that helps.

    It's mostly about how smart you are and how well you can convey that at interview.

    A-Level grades should be as high as you can get them :3.

    I got an offer so I guess I could help you out. You can see my exam results in my profile if you so wish. I'm yet to get back my LNAT score but generally anything 20 or above is regarded as a good score.

    As for my EC's I didn't put anything much more interesting than I like football and distopian futures. However, they seem to like activities related to the subject. I got an 8 day placement in a local law firm and visited the magistrates' and Crown court to view various procedures. I also read a couple of books providing a general overview of the legal system as well as some more challenging jurisprudence on the law on morality and also I read a case report of a fairly famous appeal to the House of Lords.

    Just make sure your personal statement is really polished and gets your enthusiasm across. Other than that all you can do is try to get the best grades possible and hope you get an interview.

    Good luck

    People's A level grades will be, like, straight As.

    Extra-curricular activities will be irrelevant.

    I can't make any comment on the LNAT but the other two apply to, like, every course at Oxford.
