Confusion about predictions

    • Thread Starter

    I am slightly confused about how applications work within predicted grades. For example, Glasgow uni for law says the standard entry requirement are AAA, however the minimum is ABB. I am currently predicted an AAB, does this mean of I apply I have a high chance of getting a conditional offer even if it is AAA? If so, could anyone tell me some other good law unis who have a similar system

    The minimum is generally what they want you to have before they will consider you, so you pass that hurdle. However the chances of you getting an offer will depend on a lot of other factors. Glasgow want the LNAT test so how you do in that will be a factor as will your personal statement.

    Law is a very high demand subject and many people will apply with much higher predictions than yours so it will be very competitive so you will need to stand out to get an offer, i.e. have a very good LNAT score, really good work experience, amazing personal statement.

    However you have five choices so it may well be worth a punt but I certainly wouldn't say your chances of an offer were high.

    Good Luck
