    This is my profile : 5A* 5A at GCSE. 3As and a C at AS Level. I am finally affirmed about doing Law at university. However, I am not sure to which sort of unis I should apply to, in terms of entry requirements? How much will my C affect my application to a good university and no, it's not connected in any way to Law. I am interested in UCL and KCL especially; do I stand much of a chance there? Please be honest. If I were to apply to Oxbridge by a lose thread , which one would I have a better chance at?

    I think an application to UCL/KCL is worth it.

    If you were to apply to Oxbridge you would have a better chance at Oxford.

    Do you know if UCL/KCL put more emphasis on AS or GCSE's? I'm quite worried about my C in the AS subject. Are you saying Oxford because of their emphasis on GCSE's?

    I assume that UCL places more emphasis on AS, but that's only because they are so often contrasted with LSE's intense GCSE scrutiny.

    And yes, I am saying Oxford because of their emphasis on GCSEs.

    Would you be willing to apply to LSE instead of UCL? I think you would have a better chance there.

    Oh right! Why do you think so? (Sorry for all the questions!) I just figured it would be much more competitive with it specialising in subjects like Law, Politics, etc. Whereas maybe UCL wouldn't be as competitive especially for Law ?

    In 2014 LSE had 2,692 applicants and 187 places. That's a little more than 14 applicants per place. (http://www.lse.ac.uk/study/undergrad...a2016/law.aspx)

    For 2015, UCL had 16 applicants per place. (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-stu...grees/law-llb/)

    Note that this is just how many people started the course in September; universities give out more offers than they have places.

    It's pretty equal.

    Thank you so much. I will look into LSE as well.
