    Hi there,
    I'd really apreciate some opinions on whether it would be worth applying to Law at UCL despite not have the so-called top top GCSE grades. There were however, 'extenuating circumstances' which I can at least use in my personal statement in my defence.

    GCSE's I got:
    2 A*s in ICT Practitioners
    4 As in English literature and language, Drama and Philosophy& Ethics
    4 Bs in Maths and the sciences
    1 C in french

    My predicted grades in A levels are AAA* in English, chemistry and Philosophy.

    I'm also quite an established jazz musician, gigging up and around the South-west. I'm basically a self taught pianist and singer-songwriter and am currently recording my first album. ( I have grade 6 in vocals though)

    I've got quite a bit of work experience at a local solicitors and am planning on writing the the courts.

    As for the extenuating circumstances, my mother became severly ill just before the time of my exams and I was in and out of hospital, back and forth and wasn't able to do my french listening which brought my grade down to a C.

    Thanks a lot
