    In short, I overworked myself, stayed up too late too many times during my exams. I ultimately paid the price for it as I had severe anxiety during this time and it caused me to mess up my exams a bit. I always wanted to go to Manchester Uni to do law, the entry requirements are AAA, but I'm not sure I'll get an offer. Does anyone know what my chances are and how I could improve my chances of getting in? My predicted grades will be A*AA.

    Thanks in advance

    I will be attending Manchester Uni for Law as of September, I can see why you want to go there, I cannot wait!

    I completed my A levels this summer before I applied for Law in November 2015. I got AAB at A level but was only 1 mark off straight As and got an A in the Extended Project. My offers were unconditional as I had got my A levels but Manchester did give me one. I think they will give you an offer giving your predictions and your AS grades, as even if you do 4 A levels they only want 3 A levels at a certain grade. Work hard and you could get AAA overall in 3 of them

    I'm a first year law student at Manchester - i achieved ABBB at AS-level, an my offer was AAA. In the summer i was surprised i got in as a A2 i achieved ABB. I think my personal statement must have been quite strong and showed a lot of reading around the subject - plus from last year universities were allowed to take an unlimited amount of students possessing ABB grades or higher as long as they could accommodate them (this might have had something to do with my acceptance)

    Good luck for your final exams - message me if you have any questions about Manchester

    Hey, I have the same problem, I applied to Manc and I got AAC at A2 but Its unlikely I'll get higher than ABB as well, do u know how lenient they usually are and how many other students have got into law with lower than 3As?

    See my post above on this but it is all circumstantial, last summer they were very harsh on grades for those who missed the AAA Law offer. They have increased Law with Politics to AAA now for example as well. I think it entirely depends on your individual application there is no guarantees and admissions cannot make any promises either.
