    • Thread Starter

    i know that these q's are always posted every year but i am really concerned that i dont have the grades i need to go to somewhere like durham/UCL. I am desperate to study law at uni however got 3A*'s (and an A* in L2HP, basically EPQ for Year 11) 7A's and 1B at GCSE. i know that these grades will get me into a decent uni, however, law is very competitive and i am worried that i won't be able to get into the uni's i would like. Would it be possible if i got all A's/A*'s at AS and A level? Also (i know Russell groups dont value these as much) but i do lots of extra-currciculars relative to and outside of the boundaries of law, so what do you guys think? has anyone here got into Oxbridge/Durham/very respected Russell groups with grades like mine? N.B. I know my grades aren't awful but am just concerned and would love if someone could give me some written advice
