    I'm currently in year 12 and would love to study Law at York. AAA are the entry requirements, how lenient do they tend to be? Would they consider AAB?

    Thanks in advance!

    My guess is that they will give you an offer of AAA if your grades are in the right ball park and your PS is good. Then if you miss out on results day then there's a decent chance they'll take you. York often does interviews for the chance to lower your offer by a grade, but I'm not sure if law does though

    Hiya,

    I've checked with the York Law School and they said it really depends on how many applications they receive, and how strong those applications are! However, if your predicted grades are AAB, they would encourage you to definitely still apply for Law here .

    Hope that helps,

    York Law School give out offers of AAA but let most people in with AAB providing they have space.

    I know this because I tried to convert to Law in my first few weeks and the admissions tutor told me this.

    It is quite lenient in general not sure specifically for law but someone went for politics and philosophy, where the requirements are AAA, with ABB and still got an offer

    I got in with a course requiring AAB with ABC last year, so generally lenient, however I think of Law it'd probably be more difficult. Also other factors involved as the other's have said.

    Anyone know how lenient they would be for Economics (AAB). I'm guessing ABB would be looked on more favourably than AAC and definitely ABC, but would I stand a chance even with ABB?

    Asking during one of those visit days they said ABB should be fine! As for AAC or ABC I've heard a few people get in with those grades but I think it's a lot less common than those with ABB etc. Hope exams are going alright for you! With stuff being linear this year, it might be the case that more people miss grades than previously. I'm guessing you've firmed York? If so, they'll try their best to let you in I'm sure. I've made York my insurance and hoping to still get in with ABB if that happens.

    I've firmed Leeds. Not sure if I'll get in though because it's a strict AAA offer and my Macro/Micro Paper 3 for Economics didn't go too well today. Still would be more than happy if I ended up at York though.

    Ah sorry to hear it didn't go well. I've barely any idea how I'll do with Economics because I do Edexcel Economics B which is a new course and no previous grade boundaries to look at apart from last year at AS, where you only needed 65% raw marks for an A which I thought was very very generous. Reckon I've got around that but can't see them being that low for the overall A level so my best guess is a B.
