    So I just sent off my ucas application and I’m applying to Cambridge, York, Birmingham, Warwick and Keele! For Cambridge I needed 1 A* and 2 As and for the rest it’s 3As. I’m also getting a grade reduction from Birmingham!

    I have a wide range of contextual factors (foster care, household income, qualify for bursary)

    I also got 2 As (English and Business) and 1 B (Media Studies) in AS.

    For all intensive purposes Law is extremely competitive especially at Oxbridge, however given that you are one grade under their requirement it may actually be okay. Don't hold out hope though.

    Which university do you prefer out of those other 4?

    I actually really want to go to Keele because I need ABB so and I am predicted way above that so hopefully I get an unconditional. Wouldn’t mind Birmingham too.

    Actually not that much. I didn’t even really want to apply but my parents are forcing me.

    People literally get rejected from Cambridge with A*A*A*-A*A*A*A*A*, so don't get your hopes up. But still good luck to you!
    That’s true! Thanks!

    But that must be for another reason, right? They clearly weren't rejected for their grades.

    Feel bad for you - my parents actually allow me the choice so I am going for Kent, Surrey, Reading, Leicester, and Nottingham Trent.

    Don't worry about not getting into Cambridge then

    The contextual factors will mean there should be some flex on grade requirements from most if not all of these unis.
