    Just FYI: You don't have to do Law at university if you want to be a legal professional in the UK. There's something called the Graduate Diploma in Law.

    What are your grades at GCSE/ AS levels? Do you prefer the Cambridge system (more optional modules, exams over all 3 years) or the Oxford system (more compulsory subjects, 3 papers in 1st year and 9 papers at the end of 3 years)?

    Yeah but I do want a Law degree and by the sounds of it Cambridge... And I got 5 A*-A, 2 Bs, 2 Cs and predicted 100% A in my a-levels: English Lit, Spanish, Geography and Psychology

    Assuming you do very well on AS levels, I'd recommend applying to Cambridge. If I had to guess, those GCSEs are probably below average for Oxford
