I am predicted AAAA at A-level. I planned to apply to Cambridge, King's, UCL, LSE and either Manchester or Bristol for LLB Law.

All of the unis require A*AA except for Manchester which requires AAA. I don't really have any other universities I fancy that have lower requirements but some suggestions would be great.

Should I drop the A*AA unis or should I just go with it? Will I have a chance to be offered a spot with AAAA?

It also scares me a little that I am only applying to one university in which I meet their requirements. I am afraid that I do not get an offer into any of the unis. Is it competitive to get a spot in the University of Manchester?

Firstly concentrate on 3 A levels to spend lore time to try and achieve A*AA. Secondly choose 2 A levels offering A*AA and then 2 or 3 with AAA or lower. The 2 at the higher grade can be your aspirational choices and the others for courses you are likely to get in.

go for manchester not bristol, bristol requires A*AA so all your options would be A*AA.

why do 4 subjects? ask your teachers if you were to drop so you do 3 subjects if youre predictions could go up to A*AA.

otherwise applying to even 2 unis with entry requirements higher than predictions is so so risky. especially 1 being cambridge, they have a screening process like a lot of unis where they put applicants with lower grades to the side.

youre basically applying to very top ranking unis for law.

i'd say apply to 2 or maybe(!) 3 unis requiring A*AA -
i'd say choose 1 from --
-cambridge or lse
-ucl vs kcl vs bristol

also theyre mostly (apart from manchester and cambridge) LNAT which again is v risky.
look at nottingham, birmingham, warwick, kent, exeter.

One strategy would be to apply to, say, two A*AA universities initially and see what response you get before deciding what balance you need in the rest of your choices.
