In AS I didn't do as well as hoped due to family stuff and stress which started around exams.
I'm currently predicted BCC but I want to study law and I'm waiting to send UCAS off but my teacher started making me reconsider about my choices as they're too "aspirational" for me. I can get the C's to 's if I beg my teachers and use my charm.
I currently study History, Sociology and Philosophy + Ethics.
My personal statement is really good and I can talk my way out of and through but I'm not sure if that's going to help if I get no interviews for me to use this quality.
I have quite a bit of experience in the legal field which I've mentioned in my PS.
I have applied to University of Liverpool, Uni of Kent, BPP, City and Brunel.
Should I stick to them or change up a few maybe?
I also want to ideally stay in London but I'm keeping my options open!

It is I may or may not have already put it down as my firm Aberystwyth is my insurance for International Politics and Intelligence Studies.

What about you, is Cardiff your firm?

LAW
I'm sorry but I m inclined to agree with your teachers to an extent, Kent is AAA so at least get rid of that choice if not reconsider the 3 highest of your choices.

I think you need to have some realistic choices in there. Law at Liverpool, Brunel and City requires ABB, and you fall short of that by 3 grades. Kent is AAB, so a 4 grade shortfall. No ps can make up for not getting the minimum grade requirement. Having all of your choices above what you are predicted to get is asking for rejections. Try putting your qualifications into www.whatuni.com and seeing what comes up as being in your range.

if you really want to go to those universities, you'd be better off working hard this year and applying with ABB+ next year.
