    I achieved A*A*AAAAABBBB for my GCSE's, and I was wondering if these grades are good enough to study law at top universities such as UCL or maybe even Cambridge.

    maybe, if you have top grades at A-level it might be possible. As long as you stay determined you can get the grade you need to be accepted. However it depends what your A*'s and A's were in preferably in essay based subjects like English and the core subjects like Maths and the sciences to show you are capable and intelligent. Well done on your results btw and good luck! What were you thinking about taking at A-level?

    The two A* grades came from Geography and Religious Studies.
    The 5 As I achieved were from History, English Language, Core Science, Additional Science and Food tech.
    The 4 Bs were from Maths, Drama, English Literature and French

    For A-Levels, I'm planning on taking English Lit, Theology, History and Classical Civilisation.

    Thanks for the reply by the way!

    I am about to apply for Law at unis like Cambridge and Durham this autumn! Having done tonnes of research about my chances, I think your GCSEs would not work against you but won't stand out even though they are great! Sadly Law is so competitive As long as you work really hard next year though and try to secure high UMS at AS, that seems to be what Cambridge view as the most important over anything else. Not sure about London unis though! Also I have heard that sometimes they like to see improvements between years so if you do well next year, it shows you have more to give so just work hard and you never know!

    Honestly don't panic as long as you keep on working hard and get as and bs next year then you'll have a decent chance at most Russell group universities!
