    I am applying for very competitive places on law courses in mainly Russell Group Unis. However I am worried that my profile will not be strong enough for an offer. My GCSE grades are A*A*AABBBC (went to a low performing school with low aspirations hence the little number of GCSEs), then at AS I achieved ABB. My personal statement is quite strong but I just wanted to know everyone's opinions really.
