Hello,

My A Level grades are AAA, in Business, Psychology and Sociology. My GCSE’s were 8B’s and 2C’s. If I aced the LNAT test, would there be any possibility of receiving an offer at oxford to study law?

I know it’s subjective, but be brutally honest please!

There's much more to a successful application than just grades, so your question has only limited relevance.

The grades aren't particularly competitive for Law. Oxford tends to put more emphasis on GCSEs than most other universities, and the lack of any A/A* grades is a little bit concerning. The choices of A level subjects are OK and whilst they're A grades, one A* would make it much better.

I'm not saying you haven't got a chance - and you'd certainly need a very good LNAT result. But I think your chances aren't that strong for a course as competitive as jurisprudence (you don't do 'Law' at Oxford)

Are those achieved 'A' level grades? If so, what are you doing now? The application deadline for 2019 entry has passed.

You meet the grade requirements, so, yes, you have a chance with a very good LNAT result. Is there anything to explain your GCSE grades?

They are achieved A level grades, I am currently studying at St Andrews university doing management, however I have realised this course isn’t for me, and I should have picked law/jurisprudence! I am a fresher, and thinking of leaving shortly.

I struggled with Depression during GCSEs. However I don’t know if that’s a serious enough reason for the low grades as it’s hardly comparable to bereavement or a severe illness.

It's going to be tough persuading them that you have a real passion for Law. You've also missed the 2019 application deadline. Sorry.

Law's not my ares though: BrasenoseAdm

Candidates do sometimes apply on course but all applications must be received by the 15 October deadline.
