Hi

I am applying for university and all the universities that appeal to me are Russell group unis. I am predicted D*D*D* and have B's in both my English and Maths GCSEs - so would I have adequate grades to be given offers by at least one uni to study law?

Leeds
Sheffield
York
Birmingham

Each uni specifies what they think of BTEC's and if they are accepted or not. If they are, you're surely going to be looked down upon in comparison to other A-level students doing normal qualifications.

Congratulations for getting some offers. May i ask what Btec are you doing? Just curious as i thought to study law you need traditional subjects.

Law is a VERY academic subject, and it is VERY competitive.

You will need 3 good A levels (A or A* grade) to even be in the running for Law at a RG Uni - because that is what everyone else applying will have.
A BTEC in a weak subject like Business? Not a hope.

You may be able to apply for a Foundation course in Law - but again these may insist on academic A levels as well as a BTEC.

Got anything to back that up?
