    Apply to universities now, not next year.

    Birmingham, Exeter, Southampton and QMUL, for example, are still accepting applications. All are RG, if that matters to you.

    Dont you think it's better if I finish my access course and then do a OU this September as stated by PQ and then start university on 2019 entry starting from the second year, or go to Oxford/Cambridge starting from the first year.

    No, I think you should apply now and get your university path underway.

    Cambridge/Oxford would realistically be a long shot and shouldn't be your priority. Your priority appears to be a Law degree. Focus on that.

    If you apply now to good universities (and that should not be limited to RG universities) see what happens. If you get offers, take them. If you don't then look at Plan B (the OU route).

    I've just started my course so I don't have the predicted grades yet until I submit my first assignment, so do I still have time to send in an application?

    And may I ask with shame as I have poked you alot until now but you have still kindly answered, what exactly is the OU and can I start it this September for entry to university on next September and how can I apply with predicted grades with the OU starting this September, to then start second year next year or first year in Oxford/Cambridge.

    I truly am sorry yet forever grateful

    Yes, there's time.

    OU is the Open University. You study primarily using distance learning.

    I suspect you will struggle to get an OU reference for the 15 Oct Oxbridge deadline, but your AccessHE tutor may provide a reference.

    The reference "difficulty" is another reason to consider that a Plan B. Plan A should be to apply for Sept 2018 entry as soon as you can, or at the very least via Clearing.

    And does OU have 1 year courses because I believe they are the complete degree online.

    Do they have classes you have to attend to as well?

    If you can't use Google to find that out then you're really not university material.

    OP is just more used to researching in the library. If it's not on vellum of papyrus, it is not worth OP's time.

    Have you looked at the OU site? Might be an idea...

    And; yes it has short courses, and attendence depends. Some (most) are entirely online.

    You basically pay as you study. You don't have to complete a full degree.

    PQ already linked you to the relevant modules in the OU Law course:

    (Original post by PQ)
    You would be better off getting distinctions across your Access credits and taking up some Open University Level 4 law modules (eg http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/qualif...s/details/w101 plus http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/qualif...s/details/w102 would give you the equivalent of the first year of the OU LLB QLD) alongside sitting GCSE English and Maths - starting as soon as possible after your Access course finishes. You're then applying with the Level 3 requirements for entry completed but with a plan to continue your progress (and back up your qualifications with GCSEs) during the year you're applying.
