GCSE grades good enough for Law?

    • Thread Starter

    I know this question has been asked a million and one times but I've searched around and can't find anyone with similar grades to mine asking this question so...

    I know GCSE grades aren't a massive factor in Uni offers but I would guess they still are important. I'm looking to go on to be a solicitor and would like to study an LLB (or a BA as long as it's qualifying) in Law, preferably in a Russell group/top uni. I didn't do half as well as expected at GCSE but I achieved 2A*s, 6As and 4Bs (yes we were made to do 12) with the possibility of that going up to 3A*s, 6As and 3Bs depending on the outcome of a remark. A* in Maths and an A in English Lang. My A Level subjects are History, Maths and Chemistry. I know that Oxbridge would laugh me away but do you think I have a shot at somewhere like Warwick as long as I get decent A Levels/write a good PS etc? (I think 3As should be achievable, maybe A*AA and I'm planning to do a law based EPQ and maybe pick up As Further Maths next year).

    Sorry for the completely rambly post, I'd just rather know now if there's no point in my going for Law so I can focus my attentions somewhere else.

    Your A level grades matter far more so match your predictions with the entry requirements and apply accordingly.
