    What do you think my chances would be to get an offer from Durham for Law? If you could give my chances as a percentage (e.g. 30% chance of an offer) that would be great. Obviously I know that it would just be a guess, but it would still be interesting to gauge opinion. I'm not looking for the % of the overall applicant/offer ratio here either, because I know that your chances rise or fall based on the merits of your application.

    GCSEs:

    These are the poorest part of my application, but they did put me in the top 10 in my year.

    1 A*
    4 A
    4 B
    3 C

    AS's:

    Distinction* - BTEC Applied Law
    A - English Literature (91/100 raw marks)
    A - Government & Politics (98 UMS in one paper)
    B - History

    A2 Predicted Grades:

    Distinction* - BTEC Applied Law
    A* - English Literature
    A* - Government & Politics
    A - History

    Personal statement:

    I'm not going to go crazy and assume I can do an amazing, top-notch personal statement, but let's just assume it's good and solid. I've done relevant legal work experience, visits to courts, a lot of wider reading, and law essay competitions.

    LNAT:

    Let's assume that I do slightly better than average for the LNAT.

    Contextual Flags:

    Flags will be raised for secondary school and sixth form performance as well as for socioeconomic status based on postcode.


    And do you think I'd have a better chance with Durham or UCL?

    You have a chance! Durham gave me an offer and I think we had almost equal grades, but my course wasn't law.

    Thanks

    I quite like Durham but I'm wondering if I'd have a better chance at UCL...
