    I recently applied to study Law at the undergraduate level at Cambridge. I already hold an undergraduate degree from another institution and would like to complete the program in two years instead of three. On the UCAS application, did I need to select year 2 for year of entry if I wanted to apply as an affiliated student? I know this is the case for Oxford, but I could not find any information on it for Cambridge. My concern was that if I selected year 2, the school may think I am applying as a transfer student. I have had issues contacting my desired college about the matter, as they are not very responsive. Any insight is much appreciated!

    Good question... probably year 2. Anyway it's done now - what did you put?

    Thanks for your reply! I put year one. I am hoping to find out whether it's correct so that if it's incorrect I can try and do something about it.

    Hmmm. Try asking CAO, as well as your college.

    Great! So you can change your UCAS if necessary.

    Hi there,

    Just wondering if anyone might be able to answer a fairly simple question I have regarding applying as an affiliated student to Cambridge for Law.

    I am currently an undergraduate in the 3rd year of my 4 year degree and I have had a look at the Cambridge website where it says that in order to apply for a Second BA, one must have attained a 1st or high 2:1 at undergraduate level.

    I was just wondering whether I should be applying through UCAS in the October of my final year (without my final degree results) or in the following October after I have completed my degree (with my final degree results but having been forced to take a 'gap year').

    Thanks so much for your help.
