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
When can you expect yours?
