    I'm wanting to apply to UCL, Kings College, LSE, Bristol and Oxford to do law. My GCSES were 3A*, 7A and one B. I am currently predicted 40 at IB. Do you think I have a good chance of getting into at least one of these universities? I understand how competitive it is especially for Law.

    Don't know much about IB, but your success will be impacted by your LNAT score.

    Your GCSEs are alright, but LSE generally look for more A*s. That being said, with a good personal statement you might have a chance.
    I think you'll probably get into Bristol, assuming your LNAT goes okay.
    UCL and Kings will look at your LNAT alongside everything else, so aim for 25+.
    GCSEs are a bit low for Oxford, 50% don't get an interview, so you'll need a good LNAT score to make up for the GCSEs.

    If I were you I'd swap UCL or Kings for a less competitive university, just in case your LNAT doesn't go well. LSE is your only non-LNAT university, and they're one of, if not the most, competitive universities for law in the country.

    Good luck!
