Hi!

I was looking for a forum of Law (or Jurisprudence, I guess) applicants for Oxford, but I couldn't find one, so I made one!

I'm bricking it for my application - it got sent off yesterday!

Shall we introduce ourselves with our other UCAS stuff? I’ll start.

Universities applied to: Oxford, Glasgow (offer), Durham, Leeds (offer) and Cardiff (offer) - all for Law.

GCSEs: 10 9s in the core subjects (I did triple science) and History, Geography, Religious Studies and French.

AS Levels: A in Mathematics.

Predicted grades: A*A*A* in Biology, Chemistry and Religious Studies.

College applied to: open application to Oxford (allocated Queens), and University (Castle) college for Durham.

Good luck to everyone! Let’s update each other ❤️

Ah thanks! My biggest advise would be to revise for your mock exams if your school does them. I had to revise nearly every day of the xmas holidays which was rubbish, but I learnt which revision techniques worked best for me and I got loads of my notes done! I didn't revise after that until like Easter, then I did about six hours a day with 2 days off a week during holidays. It sounds like a lot but if u start at 9am, and have a half hour break after each set of two hours, you can be done by 4 then go out! In term time, I didn't really revise on school nights, but I'd do every Saturday then have Sunday off.
In terms of techniques, I tried to make notes from the textbook/spec whenever I had an individual unit test. Then I read through them and condensed them into flashcards when it came to actual GCSE revision. After that it was just a case of doing loaaaads of practise papers- for maths they were the only revision I did! If you do a language I'd really recommend using Quizlet, it's free and super helpful for learning vocab etc. I did French and I learnt 1000 words on Quizlet, then did a bit of grammar and learnt flashcards for my orals, but it wasn't too painful.

Sorry for rambling (I'm actually procrastinating revising for my uni admissions test rn lol). If u want any subject specific advise lemme know! Happy to help. It sounds like a lot but it's really not if u start early and revise for each mini test you have - I'm sure you'll do amazing!! I did triple science, maths, eng lit and lang, then RS, history, geography and French.

Yeah sure! I did aqa sciences and I used the CGP revision guides - they're a God send. For Maths I was on Edexcel so I just used the pearson edexcel revision guide book, practise papers book and practise questions books. I bought another set of three practise papers off amazon closer to my exams. For English I was on aqa and I didn't really use a textbook or revision guide, I used the Mr Bruff videos on youtube (they're great) and my own notes from lessons. I think the English revision guides tend to be quite simplistic and don't really include high level analysis, except the Poetry anthology one which was good.

Hey! Good luck with the lnat, mine is on Monday I'm soooo nervous. Keble is so pretty! Thanks for including the link Nottingham has a really nice campus but I ended up choosing Leeds over it because I have a lot of family who went there and loved it- but I was really torn between the two for a while

A pedant (like I) will be along soon to tell you that you apply for Jurisprudence at Oxford, not common-old Law. They're very fancy there, you know...

Nice! Do not be negative, my LNAT is tomorrow so I will hopefully do well. Good to have someone looking at similar choices, we should keep each other updated!

GCSEs: 9998887777
A-Levels: A*AA and A in AS geography
LNAT: Friday
Choices: not sure if I want to go to London but if I do, I’ll apply to one or two of KCL/LSE. Other options are Oxford, Durham and UCL, if I only apply to one another London university I’ll apply to Manchester as an insurance

^^none of that made sense lol

Ah I’m worried about the multiple choice!

My college was Wadham! I chose randomly, I don’t know anything about colleges lmao I wasn’t going to apply to Oxford so it was a last minute thinng

Applying to: KCL, Durham Manchester, Bristol, Oxford (LMH).
I also feel I have messed up the LNAT :/ I'm preparing myself for a gap year + applying to Cambridge.
I thought my essay section was okay. MCQ for me were horrifically harder than the test papers online. I had texts dated from the 1700s. Gutted.

Good luck everyone.
