predicted grades; a*aa
applying to: oxford, leeds, bristol, manchester

debating between durham or york

pros of york:
lower grades (AAA)
different style of teaching

cons:
not like a classic law degree
they don't promise a year abroad which is a big priority

pros of durham:
higher on the league
classic law degree
includes a year abroad

cons:
higher grades (a*aa) which may mean a lower chance of me getting in

which one should i pick? i am currently only applying to 1 other uni that has A*AA, so should i apply to another.
at the same time, the lowest grade ive applied to is AAA. york however allows students to enter with A*AB

help!!!

wow thank you so much, I didn't realise how different their examination is! that is a lot of coursework and hardly any exams. i like how you would be working within a student firm but I feel like it's radically different from all other llb's. i was going to apply to york but i don't think i will now.
