    I'd like to go to LSE, Nottingham, UCL or King's (Law). All ask for A*AA.

    GCSE: 2A* 5A 2B 1C
    AS: AAAB (Predicted)

    Do I have a chance at these unis? Additionally, which one would you recommend? There are mixed reviews for all of them - especially LSE and UCL.

    Really depends on what AS grades you get and what your predicted A level grades are.

    I've applied for UCL Law and my grades are very similar to yours, A*AAAABBBBCCC for GCSE, and Distinction* + AAB for AS. Go for it, it's only 1 of 5 choices. Go for UCL rather than LSE though: LSE are GCSE Nazis.

    As you're not predicted an A*, they would be a bit of a risk. But as long as your predictions are reasonable based on your AS grades, they should definitely consider your application. Good luck!

    Thanks. I didn't know A* grades were possible at AS Level.

    They're not, sorry I misread the post! I thought they were your A2 predictions. If you achieve those AS grades and go on to get predicted an A* then there shouldn't be any issue.
    You've got a while before you have to make any decisions yet!
