    I want to study law/international relations at university. However since I'm aiming universities at the UK I realise that law tends to be considered as a solid degree in which most universities offer unlike IR. Therefore I'm leaning towards law.

    I would like to apply to Oxbridge but is still contemplating which one to apply to for a better chance of success. I'm currently predicted B for two of my As results and will be moving to A level next year.

    Due to my changes in my third subject for some reason, I will be sitting my A s and A level in my A level year. For IG I did CIE and recieved a merit award. Got 3 A, 4 B and 1 C. I know my results should and could have been better but I had some issues which I was disappointed but nevermind.

    Any advice on which universities to apply to? Should I give Oxbridge a go? Since I'd love to.

    Look at which unis offer your subject and what the entry requirements are. Pick unis that have the most interesting courses.

    I would personally talk to someone about it at your college to see if they think that you have a realistic chance of getting in as Oxbridge don't often offer interviews to people who got less than 4As/ 3As and 1B at AS. However, if you really want to apply there then go for it, it only takes up one of your options so if you don't get in it's not that big of a deal as you will hopefully have four other uni offers!!

    The posters above are correct. You should apply for the subjects you find interesting and the university that you want to go to. Choose whether Cambridge or Oxford offer the course that fits you and your subject choices the best, and go from there.

    Seek advice from your college, work on preparing for your LNAT, practice writing a stellar personal statement and if possible, try and get some work experience and/or volunteering under your belt.

    It'll show that you are dedicated and want to succeed, despite your previous disappointment. Make sure you look at other universities too, you might find another that fits you just as well, if not better.
