So I’m already anxious about going to uni becuase of my GCSE grades as I heard it’s really competitive.
I have passed all of my gcses with 4s but they are just passes. I didn’t really had motivation to do well in school and moving from different schools with a completely didnt curriculum just before my gcse was a really struggle
However an upside is that in my a-levels I’m airing towards all As and D* which is good
But I do think I won’t get into any good unis for law because of my gcses grades

Some will accept you - however, it's best to check with the universities (some have specific requirements).

Yes - it's competitive .You are looking at three of the leading law schools. Uni of Nottingham, for example, is asking for 128 UCAS points. Unis will usually want to know what your predicted A level / BTEC grades are; rather than GCSE results for law as you don't need any underlying subject knowledge . If you are confident that you can achieve the A level grades they are looking; for then go for it. But please do some honest reflection to decide whether you didn't get the results you are capable of for your GCSEs because of the move etc. or whether you will struggle academically to achieve high A level grades. Have you done the traditional 'academic' subjects to test your academic ability or have you done the more practical based subjects? Have a chat with your teachers and ask them for an honest opinion on what you are likely to achieve. Maybe consider a middle ranking law school as an 'insurance' option as well?
