    Hi made an account to specifically ask this question!

    I sent off my application a month or two ago and it says on their website they will contact you for an interview early feb/march I was just wondering what are my chances of getting an interview (says only certain people will) and my chances of getting in?

    My grades are: (predicted)

    English Lang+ lit: B/A
    Maths: B/A
    Science Core: A (actual result)
    science additional: A
    Citizenship: B
    Geography: A
    German: B/A
    History: A
    IT: A

    my form tutor thought it was a good idea to put B/A instead of a B for subjects he thought I show promise in!

    I also am really focused on doing Law at uni and put a big emphasis on this in the personal statement. Did a days shadowing at Sullivan and cromwell and have a week of work experience at Freshfields in Feb. Also mentioned how I am a purple belt in karate and train in Muay thai.

    can someone who possibly got in tell me what their grades are, or what they are actually looking for, in students that apply? (Heard it was one of the most oversubscribed in the country!)

    thanks in advance!

    Hi, I know people who go there, and unless you're predicted 7A*s, you won't stand a chance there.
    The funny thing is, you need to be predicted 7+ A*'s, and once you meet that offer, they will let you in with only 5 Bs

    yeah I looked at some other posts shortly after I posted this and realised my chances are slim to none. My school have something against giving people high predicted grades. I dont think anyone has grades of even 5+ A*s
