    Hey guys, i'd just like for some feedback as to whether i should bother Applying to for Law, especially at RG universities.

    I'm currently studying Marketing, Advertising, and PR Management at College, a very new course which only started being taught from the year 2015. Achieving all top grade, so there's no doubt that i'd be able to pull off an D*D*D*. I've also completed my AS year, achieving ABB in: Psychology, English Language and and Physics. I only changed after 1 year, since i felt as though AS levels wasn't my thing, and A2 workload was just so daunting.
    But anyway, i do however kind of have a weak GCSE back ground. Overall i'd achieved 8:
    English - A
    Mathematics - C
    Eng Lit - A
    French - B
    Physics - B
    Chemistry - B
    Biology - C
    History - C

    Plan on retaking my Math's GCSE and hopefully getting it to an B at-least.

    Now the universities i've looked at applying to are:
    University of Birmingham - Law
    University of Sheffield - Law
    University of York - Law
    University of Liverpool - Marketing/Business Management
    Sheffield Hallam (incase no offers from all of the above) - Marketing/Business Management

    And as i'm studying a vocational, it's what i intend on applying to University with. I understand that i'd have to take the LNAT test for some of the listed Uni's above, which i have no problem with.

    Anyway, my question is, what would my chances be of receiving offers, especially with my weak-ish background in GCSE.

    I suppose you're right. Just searched it up.

    All of the 5 universities u have stated won't require lnat from candidates applying for 2017 entry. Well done on ur AS grades, I'm suprised that u haven't proceeded into A2. Whilst some might disagree, I don't think the workload in A2 is a huge leap from AS. But that might be because I was sitting 4 in the 1st years as opposed to 3 now. I wouldn't worry too much about GCSE's, u have A's in the most relevant subjects. Best of luck

    I don't understand why you'd bother resitting GCSE maths. Your unis won't care one bit about the C.
