    So basically I want to study law at Oxbridge, LSE, UCL or Durham. What GCSE grades would be the average for each?

    I'm scared you need 10A*s but I will probably only get 5

    I know for a fact that Oxbridge will look at the amount of A*s you get in GCSEs, and I think that they are looking for a majority. I'm not sure about the other universities, I'm afraid:/

    With the exception of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, there are no GCSE (or equivalent) requirements for entry to Cambridge.
    GCSE results are looked at as a performance indicator, but within the context of the school/college performance.
    Applicants have generally achieved high grades in subjects relevant to their chosen course, and most students who apply have at least four or five As or A*s at GCSE. However, there are always exceptions and one of the strengths of the Cambridge admissions system is its ability to assess all applicants individually.
    Copied from Cambridge's website, and Oxford should be similar since it's entry requirements are lower.
