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.

In terms of Russell group...have a look at unis with AAB - ABB but are not strict enough to enforce them. (You should be able to research the uni entry requirements for yourself, research skill is vital in law).

Spoiler:

Liverpool
Cardiff



Do you think the predicted grades are accurate? You can choose a lenient AAA university if you wish (Nottingham, Manchester etc...), do it at your own risk, sway them over with your PS if you know how to BS.

*Edit: Or Nottingham Trent if you are a 'The Guardian' groupie

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

In my personal experience, they were quite lenient (more so than Manchester in terms of what they wanted from me). I’ve talked to a few others who were accepted with grades as low as ABB.

Ofc this is not a game of ‘a stranger said this on TSR so it must be true’ but just putting it out there for OP so they can make their own informed decision on what uni to pick.

The LNAT might be a good thing, for OP to prove to Nottingham that the predicted grades does not do him justice. Ofc it might backfire completely to but who knows?

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.
