    Hi guys,
    I just wanted everyone's honest opinion on whether I have a good chance of getting an offer from Cambridge/UCL since I lack A*'s.
    In GCSE I was in an inexperienced and underachieving school in which my grades were top 9%. I got;
    Maths A
    English Lit A
    English Lang A
    Double science AA
    Business A
    PE A
    History A
    In A2 I believe/highly confident I will be predicted A*A*A. Say I achieve that and my PS etc are all good, will I honestly stand a good chance of getting an offer from Cambridge/UCL to do law?
    Thanks guys.

    I would say yes- fantastic grades! However, you only have 7 GCSEs... Cambridge usually looks for 8-11.

    Sorry, you have 8. I should probably count better.

    Definitely! Remember it is GCSEs so the obviously need to be mostly As. Which you have! And Oxbridge care more about A levels. What did you get for AS?

    You should be able to get in any Russel group uni.
