    Hi guys, I have a question concerning Cambridge admission criteria. I've finished high school two years ago in Romania. My standardized test results answer the requirements of Cambridge. However, since then I have studied two years of law in Romania. My grades during law school aren't really that great. However, I did have some personal issues going on and have received psychological assistance for that. Right now I was thinking of applying to Cambridge for a law degree. My questions would be as following:

    1. Do you think that if my therapist were to complete the extenuating circumstances form, my lack of academic excellence during uni would have a lesser impact on my application?

    2. What will be the main criteria for reviewing my application? My high school grade/my university grades/my standardized test results?

    Tbh, if you didn't end up with a law degree, then it'll be based on your high school and standardised test scores
