    Hi everyone

    I am not here to look for compliments or anything, just want some straight input on how you think my GCSEs are.

    I am looking to go to a good university, not Oxbridge but somewhere like UCL or on that level; I am interested in doing something like Maths or maybe Law (completely different I know!)

    I have already got A* in Maths and English but predicted this overall

    A*A*A*A*AAAABC

    This includes A*A in ICT which I know is pretty soft. I'll be doing A-levels such as Maths, FMaths, Physics and Law which I will aim for straight As - do you think I'll have a big problem getting into better unis?

    Looking great! Though remember universities prefer you don't have A Level law for a law degree

    Your GCSE's are fine But it is a myth that universities prefer you not to have A level Law. People often wrongly cite the Trinity College Blacklist as ruling it out; infact, they say that it is ok as a third A level, as do all UK universities. Yet, it must be said that Geography, History, Maths, Sciences etc would be a better choice

    Perhaps do an alternative to Law? Some universities prefer other subjects I think. Overall, however, it's looking good Aim high!

    Thanks for all of your input guys. I have had a good long think about choosing Law A-level and have come to the conclusion that I am going to do something else. I have heard those rumours about the possible A-level Law 'avoidance' and based on the fact that you only need good A-levels to do a degree in Law, I'll choose something else.

    Probably Biology. Thanks guys! :-)
