    I have a cousin who lives in Ireland; he got his A-Level results yesterday:

    English Language: A
    French: B
    Irish: B
    History: B
    Economics: C

    I think he's only applied to Irish universities. He wants to do a Law course. I haven't heard much from him (as I'm abroad at the moment), so I don't know what his current plans are.
    My question is...would it be possible for him to apply to a uni in the UK this year? Last year, he got an offer from Queen Mary's, but he didn't meet their offer. He retook his exams, and I think he got better grades this year. However, I don't think he applied to any UK universities this year. Is there the slightest chance of him getting a placement this year, if he contacted Queen Mary's (or any other uni...)?

    I'm going into year 12 next year (I am currently awaiting my GCSE results!), so I don't know much about applying to unis and stuff. I'm just trying to be helpful! :')

    By 'this year' I'll presume you mean for entry in September 2013. He could apply via UCAS Clearing for this - it would cost him £23 to register and apply, and he could enter a single choice on UCAS Track once he'd got a verbal offer from a university with available places. QMUL don't appear to be in Clearing for Law this year though, so he'd have to look at other universities.
