Are my GCSE's good enough to study law at a decent University? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone, ok, so, as you all know, yesterday (August 25th) students around the country received their official GCSE grades. Mine are as follows:
    English Literature - A
    English Language - A
    Religious Education - A
    History - A
    Maths - B (retaking)
    Additional History - B
    Core Science - C
    Additional Science - C
    Media Studies - currently a D, though that grade is likely wrong, false accusation of plagiarism made a B go down to a D, currently under investigation
    Product Design - D (😡)
    So, essentially I would like to know whether my current GCSE results are acceptable for a decent University, obviously not Oxford/Cambridge, but a well respected and generally good one, to study Law. Bear in mind I plan on retaking Maths next year and have appealed my Media Studies, so those are two potentially higher grades.
    For my A levels I am taking:
    English Literature
    Religious Education
    Maths (AS)
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I would also, really like to know how my GCSE's fair generally, are they good/bad/average?
    Thankyou for reading, and thankyou in advance for any (possible) answers.
