they take LNAT into account a lot
you don't need epq but if you do it it's good to talk about in your ps
not extra curriculars, more like super curriculars
the main thing is academic

I wouldn't worry too much about extra cirricular stuff
I'm currently a UCL law student and I barely did anything exceptional on my personal statement
I didn't do EPQ and didn't bother writing about anything extra cirricular because to me it made no sense to include it because it wasn't relevant. The only thing "extra" I included in my personal statment was a bit about the opinions of a law book (that I hadn't even read) and a visit to the old bailey to watch a murder trial
The important thing to remeber is why is what you're writing relevant? Always make every point you make answer a question about why you want to study law, or why you're suitable for that course etc.

You need stellar grades+lnat (a*aa min). Your subject doesn't even really matter with law.

Personal statements are personal, not sure what you want us to tell you abt that... I guess show demonstrable interest in Law?

ecs don't really matter, but try and get some experience at a firm (provided you have the right predicteds; they won't look at you without those)

Yeah you have to do the LNAT though you have to do it for any good uni to do law
I scored kind of averagely in mine I think?
It doesn’t really matter a huge lot, I wouldn’t worry about it anyway, it’s not like you can prep in it.
If you’re looking at an overall thing, I did kinda averagely in my LNAT and had a personal statement that wasn’t amazingly unique or different, just very focused. That got me an offer of A*AA ((just like anyone else taking the course))
It’s really not that hard I wouldn’t worry about it
Just make sure your statement is relevant and do your LNAT and you’ll be fine
(( I feel like it’s important to mention you HAVE to do the LNAT. I didn’t do it for Oxford and the told me they wouldn’t consider me for interview bc I hadn’t done it lmao make sure you do it ))
