    To be honest, it would be quite difficult with those grades. However if you really worked hard at a level and got your AAA then you could get into a Russel group. But you need to ask yourself: is is realistic that I will get an A in a subject at a level, when I can't get an A in it at GCSE? Sorry about that, but good luck.

    Yup, as long as you achieve that in your A levels, you'll get in.

    Some RG unis place a fair amount of having strong GCSE's alongside your AS/A levels for LLB courses. I'll be doing Law at the University of Manchester in September and you needed a strong overall GCSE profile with minimum grade A in Eng Language and B in Maths. I have 1 A* 3A's and 5B's at GCSE which is pretty average/okish for a Russell Group uni law student, definitely nothing special. London unis like UCL/KCL/LSE place a fair emphasis on GCSE's especially LSE where you need a lot of A's and A*s to have a chance. Bristol are supposedly fussy, cant talk to much about it apart from my own uni.

    You can get into a Russell Group uni with those GCSEs if you do very well at A-levels, but you probably won't be able to go to Oxford or LSE
