    I'm currently preparing for A2 exams in June alongside with my 5 retakes from last year this summer, in total I'm going to sit 12 exams. I'm studying Maths, History and Law in A2 and I want to study Law at a reputable University hopefully. My subject teachers predicted me quite realistically CCC, but luckily I received conditional offers from all the realistic Universities that I applied to, where Coventry University was best out of all of them (who asked for ABB). I'm definitely going to go through clearing in case I can get into a better University. The likes of Birmingham, Nottingham etc, as I am aware, require the LNAT exam to be done whatever their requirements are. I haven't done the LNAT exam because my grades weren't good enough from last year's exam performance .However, (I hate saying this word but) if I do well this year and get through to the clearing, would I have a chance to study Law at the Universities that require LNAT that I just mentioned above through clearing or is it too late because I didn't do the LNAT test beforehand?

    If you do well then you don't have to go to clearing, but go through adjustment (only if your grades exceed the requirement of your firm and insurance). Universities that require LNAT won't really have any clearing spaces (if they do which in itself is very rare, then odds are it'll be difficult as many students will try to secure a place), since they're generally oversubscribed.

    So say someone gets A*A*A wouldn't they ever consider about it when phoning them up on the day that person gets their results day to apply either University of Birmingham or Nottingham University?

    As I said above, you'll be able to go through adjustment, but it'll be unlikely for them to have space. Also I've checked and Nottingham hasn't ever appeared for clearing for Law, and it's probably the same for Birmingham.
