When it comes to Law, the main factor considered by tutors is the potential for academia. Naturally, A-levels are a much better predictor than GCSEs.

You should ensure that you have developed a genuine and mature motivation for Law. It is a wonderful subject to study, but you truly have appreciate its abstract nature. Reading cases about boundary disputes can only ever be enjoyable if you see the great significance behind the rule that is in the process of verbalisation to be added into Law's corpus. Yet, you don't accept it blindly - you should be raring to argue different sides.

Your academic potential is also judged on the basis on how well you do on your LNAT: both the multiple choice and the essay. The former is the quantitative dimension of your application, and can go a long way to prove your case. As for the essay, many people underestimate it: the study of Law revolves around legal essay writing. The tutor will have a glimpse into your form of analysis and its communication.

In summary, if you feel like the GCSEs are less competitive, then put the effort in preparing well for LNAT. Your application is looked at holistically, and Law is a very diverse crowd of 'specialists' - the tutors are not looking for the so-called 'well-rounders'. And do not forget to truly research how it is to study Law, because you should make that decision with virtual certainty.

Hope this helps
