uni of liverpool. its easy to get in, sometimes they allow people with lesser grades to get in, their law course is usually under-subscribed and cost of living in liverpool is quite low. also the marking standard in liverpool uni is lenient and its easy to get a 2:1. stress levels are also low.

nottingham may not be as lenient, their requirements have already moved down from A*AA and it needs LNAT

The reason why you're unlikely to find many top places that'll accept that is that the firms themselves have UCAS filters (ABB> except for mitigating circs). Thus, if I were you I'd focus on exceeding those predictions on the real thing and applying the year after.

Most firms don't have such requirements, so your theory doesn't make sense.

Most top unis require top grades because ... they're top unis which want top students. Nothing more and nothing less.

Many top firms have those requirements. I can literally send you a table of their requirements unless you just wanna keep going off conjecture. Top Uni requirements correspond. It's a feedback loop. I wasn't talking about most firms. I was operating under the presumption that OP wanted to work at top firms seeing as he wants to apply to "really good schools."

Read first, plunge later.

Categorically untrue. It was an April Fool's in The Tab.

You also have to remember that, were you to get BBB, it could preclude you from applying to the top firms, which often have A level requirements in addition to a degree requirement of AAB- ABB.

Goes without saying that this is obviously unless serious mitigating circumstances affected your grades/predictions.

No, they don't correspond. Top unis have A*AA entry requirements. Whereas the standard some elite firms use is ABB-AAB. The A-Level requirements of firms and unis are demonstrably disconnected. And these unis, for courses like English and history, have similarly high entry requirements.

By top unis, I'm not necessarily referring to Oxbridge, LSE, UCL. I mean red brick, Top 30 unis. Most in that group unis have ABB/AAB and up minimum reqs (taking contextual offers into accounts) law requirements, which is what top firms want. But I accept that I may be wrong in why they correspond; It just seems that they do.
