    Admissions work like this.

    KCL is a popular college and law is a very popular degree. KCL is going to get several times more applicants than places even though with their A level requirements, there is no cap but there is a limit on how many students they can take anyway.

    They are going to give only the students who they think will get the required grades offers based on their GCSE, AS grades, predicted A level grades and interview.

    They will give more offers than places because some candidates will not get the grades, some will change their mind and some use KCL as insurance. They can't give places to candidates they think won't get the grades because they most probably won't and its too risky for them to have unfilled places.

    There will be a cut off for candidates they won't give offers to based on the aforementioned GCSE and AS grades. Your grades are far too low for them to take a risk on given they most likely to have lots of candidates with better AS results that is below their cut off anyway.

    Your best bet is to apply after you get your A level results.

    I highly doubt it, they have a 14% acceptance rate.
    I applied with lower than expected grades, 1 grade lower than asking, and got in.
    It's up to you whether or not to apply, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

    I think you should apply after you've done your A-levels and take a year out.
