If you want a 'give it a shot' choice you could apply to somewhere that requires AAA.

Hey! I have predicted grades for AABD for Maths, Economics, Physics and Chemistry.
Is it true that Science subjects have exceptions for the high entry requirements? 😱

No, absolutely not. All A Levels are given the same level of consideration - except perhaps general studies, critical thinking and applied subjects.

With AAB predictions in your three best A Levels, you should normally consider applying to one AAA uni, two/three AAB unis, one/two lower than AAB unis.

With all due respect,

Don't go to City. Trust me, their 'standard' offer my be AAA/AAB but when the course starts you'll find a lot of students scrape in on clearing with grades like ACC or BBC who aren't interested.The prospects are also dire at City, seriously to illustrate this, try finding three barristers who went to City University and completed the LLB law degree there via Google. Lastly, when I attended and left after the first week, 40% of students (the previous year) failed in the end of year exam and withdrew from the course according to the criminal law lecturer. (Most likely due to poor quality of teaching). If you are willing to leave London try aiming for the Russell Group universities which almost regardless of their league table position will always hold a good reputation for Law. For example, York, Exeter, Sheffield, Leeds or Newcastle. If you really prefer to stay in London, Brunel is a better option which is likely to also offer AAB.

Hopefully you won't make the same mistake I did with City.

The best one for AAB is Exeter but their course is becoming so popular that they're making offers for AAA

thankyou for your response
I somewhat didn't trust City myself, but my sister is currently in her final year at City doing Law, which is why I kind of got forced in putting it down by her and my mother. she swears by it, being really good. I have thought about putting reading and surrey down as my other two, if I change city by convincing my mum it isn't great, would you recommend Brunel or Westminster ?

City Law School is fantastic for postgraduate study of law and the law conversation course but not undergraduate. That's where it derives its self-proclaimed world class reputation for Law. I'd recommend Brunel over Westminster personally on the basis of the league table (otherwise it's a difficult decision).

http://www.thecompleteuniversityguid...r=London&s=Law

You can see from this guide that London Met and London South Bank have better prospects then City University. It's also ranked 44 so there are quite a few Universities where if you did achieve AAA you do much better. Reading and Surrey are good solid choices. Sussex also isn't far from London but a top 20 University for a Law which you should consider.
