English Language and Literature

What universities are you thinking of:
Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Cardiff - my current 5!

A level / IB / Higher predicted grades:

Hi! This looks like it’ll be fun once it kicks off and everyone all replies haha

What course are you applying for: Law. At KCL I’m applying for PPL
What universities are you thinking of: Durham, UCL, LSE, KCL, not sure of my fifth
A level / IB / Higher predicted grades: A*A*AA (maybe a third A* if my RS teacher is feeling generous)
GCSE grades: 9 8 8 8 7 7 7 7 7 6 5
Extra curricular: I volunteer with young children from usually difficult backgrounds basically helping them with their hw. I’m also a part of the NCS LYB for my area so we basically try to tackle issues in our local community and I’ve given a bunch of speeches related to that. CCF (combined cadet force) where I’m Lance Corporal (I’m actually quite annoyed because I should be Corporal by now but I do CCF at the boys school near me and I go to the girls school, and they have always promoted the boys before us girls even though we do just as much if not better than they do) I’m the secretary of the Interact organisation branch in my school where we plan charity events and I’m a Senior Charity Official as my prefect role at school
