So basically ,
I achieved my 12th grade marks (equivalent to A-Levels) in 2016. Since then , I have undertaken a degree in my native country. I'll be completing my degree in April of 2019. I'm planning to apply for a September 2019 entry for LLB in the UK. At said time, I will be 21.
Will I be considered as a Mature Student or not? If so ,are there any major differences to the application procedures and selection procedures?

Yes, you will be considered a mature student. The application procedure is exactly the same for everyone, mature and non-mature students alike. Some universities relax entry requirements for mature students, but in general you will be held to the same standard as other applicants. Do you know where you're applying?

When you say your marks would be equivalent to AAA, can you be more specific, what quantification do you have/are you doing? A degree?

You will need to declare your degree (even if you have not yet completed it). If you are getting good degree marks (with an average of 75%, or First Class) then you should be aiming higher (Oxbridge, UCL, KCL, LSE etc), in my opinion. Some universities offer 'senior status' LLBs, essentially they allow people who already have a degree to skip the first year of their second degree - would you consider doing that?

I don't know the entry requirements of every university by heart, you will need to check individual websites to see where you could apply - but I would avoid Brunel, if I were you. SOAS might be a good alternative?

I wouldn't mind doing a Senior Status , or using my Degree marks as a way of getting into Uni.
Honestly , SOAS didn't appeal to me. Idk why , but I just didn't feel like SOAS was the right fit for me.I looked at Birkbeck as well but decided against it
