Hi,

I’m Molly and I’m applying for law! My grades are AAABB, which aren’t great from a law applicant but I’m hoping for some offers. I’m applying to Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, RGU and Stirling. Anyone know how quick the universities are in offering places and how likely I am to get accepted? Thank you, good luck everyone too x

Hi

I’m also a law applicant from Scotland and I have applied for the dual qualifying degree.

My grades are 5As and a B at Higher and I am predicated AAA for Advanced Higher.

I’ve also applied to Oxford, Edinburgh and Glasgow and am yet to decide on my fifth choice.

I have heard nothing from Aberdeen in the past 10 days (not even an acknowledgement) since applying which is a shame as I was hoping for an early offer. I guess I need to be patient.

Best of luck to you all!

No. I have no idea and I’m not good at waiting either.

Our school (neat to Aberdeen) had a talk from an admissions officer from arts and humanities at Aberdeen Uni and she said all applicants with 5 As would receive an unconditional offer so I guess they haven’t started sending out offers yet?

Good luck!

I don’t think offers are being sent out, none of my friends who have applied have received anything yet either.

It states on website minimum is AABBB, so I guess we both stand a chance at getting unconditionals.

Hi guys, Aberdeen were very slow to send out offers last year - many people had to wait till March or even April!

Hi there!
I’m Luke and I’m living in Italy atm
I’m applying to Aberdeen for History and Philosophy ...and I’m also applying to Edinburgh, Strathclyde, Dundee and Stirling.
I’m a bit worried about Aberdeen because I’ve received different opinions about the city...anybody could tell me how is living there? Also I’m interested in their Anglo-Saxon and Celtics courses...

No, I have heard people have been receiving conditionals from Edinburgh. Not sure if it’s a good or bad thing not to have received one!

Conditionals for Law and for Scottish students? That’s interesting.....
I was hoping for an unconditional due to my 5As and a B at Higher, but maybe they don’t do that anymore?

Good luck in any case!

I'm in the process of applying for doing a PhD in Psychology, I am currently finishing my MSc at RGU so I'm not sure if it will be October or 2020 I will get in. Doing the course part time due to caring commitments

Hi I'm MaisieI'm applying for Law with English Law and European Legal Studies. I got 3 A's and a B last year so I'm really worried about applying for Uni as I only have 4 Highers. I'm studying 2 Advanced Highers and 2 Highers this year and I'm predicted A/B in them all.I'm not entirely sure where else I'm applying for but thinking Dundee, Edinburgh (Napier more likely because of my grades) and Stirling.
