Hello All

I am in Year 12 and interested in apply to study Law at a uni. I am studying A-Level Econ, Politics and History.

GCSE GRADES-
Grade 8- x1
Grade 7- x4
Grade 6- x2
Grade 5- x3
A Level Predicted- A* A A

Is my academic profile good enough so I can get into a very good uni that would make me attractive to magic circle firms?

Do you know what a magic circle law firm is and what it does? Sounds like a trigger word to me.

Are they the top 5 law firms in London that bring in the most revenue.

For Oxford, they are quite strict on GCSEs but it would depend on a lot of factors like your LNAT, especially your essay, the interview and etc. You can only apply to one uni in Oxbridge so Cambridge you will likely but it depends on a lot of factors for CLT, interview and etc but they are less strict in GCSEs and they are less strict than Oxford. For Bristol, Durham and LSE, LNAT is important since for Bristol it's 40% LNAT, 40% A-levels and 20% GCSEs while Durham is less strict on it since you need to have a satisfactory score and I think LSE is important in them. I think you can get into York, if you do well in their interview, Leeds and Warwick but not too sure about the others since other factors are important in their admissions process

You'd definitely be fine for a decent law school.

Do LSE see GCSEs as important?

I think they do but not too sure since I never researched about any London unis so maybe look for threads here or asking on here if so or look/request at FOI requests for what LNAT applicants' GCSEs were at whatdotheyknow.com

Noooo I want to be but I'm still in yr 12. I'm currently reading What about Law since it has a general overview of each compulsory modules but If you know what are of law you like I suggest getting a book based on that tbh. If you like Fiction + Law, Eve was Framed and The Secret Barrister is popular
