    I want to go to either Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, or KCL to study Law.

    Science Unit 2 A*
    Science Unit 3 A*
    Business A*
    History A
    Math A*

    IB

    HL English 7
    HL Econ 7
    HL History 7
    SL Chem 6
    SL Math 7
    SL Spanish 6
    Plus the 3 points so I have a total of 43 points

    I also do partake in a lot of extra ciriculum activities such as:
    The football team u12,u14,u15,u16,u18,u19
    The rugby team u14,u15,u16,u18,u19
    The athletics squad u15,u17,u19
    Model United Nations for 3 consecutive years

    I go to one of the best British International schools in the world.

    Only problem is that in year 10 I got suspended.

    What are my chances like with theses uni's?

    I think you'll struggle, you seem to have skipped playing for the U13's football team and uni's will be wondering why

    Some next level advice here! Are you doing your ASs now? I think Oxbridge look at all A students at AS with high UMS as well.

    Just to clarify, that is all-A students, ie students who get all As rather than every single student who gets an A!

    Well, based on your IB grades, it seems like you are a pretty solid candidate. I think you should focus on your LNAT and your interview to ensure that you will get in.

    As for the suspension, you might want to address that in your personal statement and demonstrate how you have improved since then.

    Good luck on your application!

    Don't talk about a suspension if you're applying to Oxbridge in your personal statement. I've spoke with Oxbridge tutors etc and they have all said above all else they're looking for students with the appropriate grades, and who go beyond the IB / A-Level syllabus (extensive wider reading). They don't care about extra curricular activities unless it can be explained why it is relevant to your studies, in fact - at the Oxbridge Conference they said they totally ignore any reference to non-academic sections of your personal statement.

    Your grades are more than adequate for Oxbridge. It's more so your LNAT and how extensively you've read into your subjects which will determine whether you get a place or not.
