So starting from September, I will be in my 2nd year of A levels so in a year time I am hoping to go to university. My goal is to go to UCL because I loved it so much when I attended their open day as well as their course (law) is really good and the people there too. But I also had others in mind like King's College, Durham, Nottingham, LSE etc but I am not sure if I stand any chance. My grades at the minute are on average B's. In Sept I will have my mocks so I am revising for them hard to get a good grade. I will also be doing EPQ (topic:euthanasia). I am searching for some work experience too and since I still have time before going back to sixth form, I am sometimes going to my local crown court and listen to trials. And in my free time I do occasionally read legal articles/journals.
What would I need to get into UCL??Do they only accept those with straight As or is at least AAB good enough?? (or any uni that I listed)

Each uni states what they want on their website - UCL want A*AA

Ik I am not stupid I did checked but then my friend was supposed to get A*AA but he got AAB and he still got into Durham. That’s why I was wondering if grades 100% matter

Grades do matter, always have a safety option but there is nothing wrong with aiming high and using it as motivation .

1 experience from 1 friend doesn't mean sh*t

Grades matter a lot. Realistically, what A-Level grades are you aiming/on-track for?
