Hey everyone
I recently just finished my nat 5's and I have done well in 5 them which are chemistry, physics, biology, modern studies and maths. I think I have secured A's in them, however in my English exam my timing messed up slightly and I am incredibly worried that I might get a B. I know this might seem desperate but let's say i got a B in English but got an A in everything else, will it affect my chances to get into these following law schools:

Bristol, Durham, nottingham, Oxbridge, Edinburgh.

Would I still have a chance as long as I crush my highers and do well in my LNAT?

Cheers.

It's mostly Highers that universities care about and one B at N5 won't mean you miss out on an offer if you have good Highers, LNAT and personal statement. I have friends going to Edinburgh for law this year who got one or two Bs at N5 so it shouldn't affect you too much. I've heard that Oxford take GCSEs (and therefore N5s too) more seriously than Cambridge but I really wouldn't let that put you off Oxford if you do really like it. I doubt that the other three unis would reject you for one B, I applied late to Durham in February (for languages) and got an offer which is now my firm choice. Don't stress too much about them! Good luck for results day

Firstly, best of luck for results day!

I am waiting on Higher results and hoping to apply for Law too.

It is unlikely that 1 B at N5 will affect you. I got 7 As at N5 but in reality, it doesn't matter too much as universities are more bothered about Highers/AH (particularly Cambridge).

All that would be expected if it was in English would be to try and get that B in N5 up to an A for Higher.

Don't worry about it just now and just wait for results day - take it from there. There is every chance you may have received an A.
