    I've just turned 20 years old, I'm talking a 6 month intensive Access course in Law that finishes in August, say if I get the grades but I'm also looking for more qualifications that help boost my chances, and if they take conditional offers I'll apply in September 2018 for September 2019 entry, using my access course as a prediction and get a conditional offer while I'll be studying one or two A levels in the year of waiting, one in English language or creative writing.

    And does the college allow me to do A Levels in a year, from this September to the next, or is it 2 years?

    So typically with these grades do I have a good chance of getting in.

    BTEC LEVEL 2 In Performing Arts (Distinction)

    6 month Intensive Access Course in Law (Distinction)

    A level English language (A/A*)

    A level Creative Writing (A/A*)

    And I've completed Duke of Edinburgh award at bronze

    Oh and I've also published a book
    And I know a second language alongside English

    I want to study law.

    I couldn't finish my GCSE's due to me being forced to leave the country, the BTEC level 2 is my GCSE equivalent, I do not have English and Math GCSE, do you think they will accept me after going through all this and getting the grades, or would they not accept me due to not having English and Math GCSE.

    Hi, I've moved your post to the University of Oxford forum

    Perhaps BrasenoseAdm can comment on your circumstances.

    But the application deadline in October, so you should have your Access course marks by then anyway?

    And yes if you have predicted grades for your A-levels then that's fine and the subjects may be included in any offer.

    Thanks for the tag. Oxford provides this online advice for candidates seeking to apply via an Access Course route:

    https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/unde...rements?wssl=1
    Some Access courses allow students to take one or two A-levels as part of the course. This option is strongly recommended for students who wish to apply to Oxford, especially for those courses which have specific subject requirements. (You can check the requirements on our course pages and in this summary table.) Conditional offers are likely to be for completion of the Access to HE diploma with all the level 3 credits at Distinction, and A or A* grades in any A-levels taken.
    If you would like to discuss the suitability of your Access course for entry to Oxford University, please contact the subject department that you’d like to apply to for further information. (Contact details are on the course pages.) It would be helpful if you could provide a link to the syllabus for your particular Access course, on your university or college’s website.

    In addition to the Law School administrator (who can be contacted at the first link below) you might wish to approach Vicky Lill at Harris Manchester College (2nd link below) for further guidance as HMC admit for Law and specialise in mature UG applicants:
    https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/unde...rudence?wssl=1
    http://www.hmc.ox.ac.uk/people/ms-victoria-lill/

    Law is unusual in that it has a specific GCSE requirement (Maths). So it strikes us that you may need to take GCSE Maths as well - something to raise with the Law School and Harris Manchester.
