Yes achievable. But you should not limit yourself to only London unis.

If you're going to do that anyway, then don't be wasting your time with City and London Met. They're in Clearing anyway, so they're wasted choices. SOAS, RHUL?

My family isn't in a good place financially so I want to stay home and help with the bills, otherwise I would've loved to apply to Nottingham and Bath. I want to apply to City and Met as safe choices, just in case I don't get in to the others.

If you don't get into the others, you can apply to safe choices in UCAS Extra and if that doesn't work out you can get into them through Clearing.

Pinky promise you're not going to put City and London Met down as one of your 5 choices.

Ok I'll drop Metro 😂 Thanks. by the way, I assumed that clearing for Law is really limited as it's such a popular course.

It's a safe choice, contingency for the worst case scenario.

Good, thank you!

Nah, it's quite popular but there are pretty big courses in Clearing. Even QMUL is often in it and City certainly will be.

My friend got into Oxford for English with AAAC this year. The C was in Maths which she dropped, will you drop RS as you got the C in that?

But yeah those uni choices are definitely realistic, as others have said I wouldn't recommend Londom Met or City as you could get those in clearing anyway. SOAS and maybe LSE are better shouts.

I had AAAD at AS and got interviewed at Oxford, UCL, Imperial, Durham and Manchester. I got offers from all apart from Oxford (however, the feedback from Oxford was that I was very close to getting in - I got pooled to another college for interview as well). I even got a scholarship from Imperial but chose UCL for the social life. So, yeah, 100%, you should apply for better universities tbh, you're limiting yourself with those

Wow, thanks! What subjects did you take btw? What did you get at A2? Do they test your knowledge about the law in the Oxford interview?

I applied for Chemistry and I took Chemistry, Maths, Biology and English Literature at AS. I guess Law will be more competitive however, they do consider you based on contextual data. So, if you went to a bad school, from a low income area, or worked in your youth then you have a bit of an advantage
