    Plenty of very good students go to Warwick for law every year. It is a very good course.
    It's very much a marmite uni - plenty of people look at the location and reject it. There is more to going to uni ... a good course is just the start.

    I don't disagree. I wouldn't attend purely for the location.

    However, last year the average applicant had predictions of 1.7 A*s and 0.9 As. It does attract a lot of good applicants, even if it's only a 4/5th choice for them.

    These stats have been debunked on the law forum countless times.

    The biggest flaw from my perspective is it refers to students who've studied non-law and done the GDL. It is not a direct reflection of the law course at uni X. It is also about gross numbers; Manchester with a high number of students (across all its degrees) has a very good representation.
    That's fair, I was unaware they'd been roundly criticised. Of course they don't address gross numbers at all, which is a downside, but I do think the numbers somewhat line up with what you would expect regardless.
