    Hi, are there any out there already studying Law (preferably M100) care to take the time to share what grades they got at A level to get in. I know they say A*AA but a friend told me that with so many applicants they only really consider A*A*A*. Would like to know if there is any truth to that and also how is the work load there and the student life? Thanks

    I came to study law in 2010. I did the IB instead of A-Levels and I had 41 points.

    According to some conversion formulae, that's like getting 5As at A-Level. It's about 632 UCAS points according to the tariff tables if that helps.

    Most people on my course have very mixed results: I recently met a girl a year below me who had done 8 or 9 A-Level subjects and gotten a mix of A*s, As and Bs. Other people I know have done 4, 5 and 6 A-Levels and gotten AAAAAA predictions and better.

    Then there are people who did the exact minimum, 3 A-Levels, and got in anyway.

    It's more than just grades, mate. Your Personal Statement and teacher recommendation play a huge role as well.
