Hi everyone! I want to study Law, preferably in London. My predicted grades are A*AA, and so far I've decided I'll be applying to King's, Queen Mary's and LSBU. (Also- do you think it's worth applying to UCL?)I was wondering if you have any other London uni recommendations (preferably requirements AAA-ABB), because I feel like I might end up achieving A*AB instead, and I'd like an insurance I'd actually like to go to.Thanks very much in advance!

Just as an insurance, in case I don't get an offer from the rest or miss the requirements. Any better suggestions?

Oh don't apply LSBU for insurance with A*AA. There is nothing good in it. QMUL is safe enough for insurance.

I will definitely try LSE or UCL, but if you really want backup SOAS, City U and even Westminster would be better choice than LSBU. It sounds terrible for someone with predicted A*AA ending up to LSBU.

Thanks for the advice, how comes LSBU has such a bad reputation? I had a look at City's campus and really disliked it but I'm now considering switching LSBU for City. Though my predicted are high I'm afraid they might be too optimistic, so yeah insurance is defo necessary

I won't say LSBU is necessarily one of the worst in London, but it's very mediocre and literally carry no additional reputation. I remembered there was a 1 April joke about LSBU to merge with King's (when I was doing my application). You can get how bad it is when it's a joke.

City law school also has a campus in Grey's Inn. It's close to KCL's main library (just across the street), QM's law school and LSE (these two might be 10 mins away). I have been there once and it looks really nice. I don't know how that works out but maybe you can have a check?

You will be fine even if you slightly miss your offer for QM. QM is not super strict especially if they officially ask A*AA. I'm out of the realm of law for a while. But for me SOAS and Royal Holloway or maybe Westminster and Brunel sounds much better than LSBU in London.

SOAS said they'd give me a reduced offer but I don't really like their optional modules. I'll probably go with City U and Westminster and hope for the best.
Thanks again!

Wish you good luck to make it in King's (or even UCL/LSE). Your grades deserve that! Maybe we can become alumni someday!

Royal Holloway isn't really in London by any meaningful measure. Brunel is about as far out of London as you can get and still call it London.

On some of the other places mentioned:

Westminster - agree with someone else here. It's got problems.
LSBU - do not under any circumstances
SOAS - some of the options are weird, but with QLDs no longer being a thing, does it matter?
City - my own personal opinion is that it's a horrible place and utterly mediocre.
LSE - I personally wouldn't bother. Very few home students seem to get in, the social life isn't the best.
QM - I don't rate the rest of the uni, but everyone raves about the law faculty, so there you go.
UCL - the best, obv. I did masters there
Kings - very good. I did undergrad there

Haha yeah, I was in the same boat as you when choosing my 5 Unis. I ended up applying to King's, UCL, Oxford, Royal Holloway, and City. I won't go to City because it doesn't have nearly as much prestige as UCL or King's but I wanted that as a safety school.

I got an offer from Holloway and I'll go if I get rejected from the other top 3. My only issue with Holloway is its small choices of optional modules and how it's not in central London but that's not technically the end of the world.

UCL will be hard because their requirements are higher for Canadian students and they look heavily at the LNAT essay. Also people who got offers seem to have a higher MCQ average (27ish) but idk if that's accurate. I really like the school and location though!

My dream for almost 2 years has been going to King's and I think I have a chance of getting in since my predicated grades converted from Canadian grades is A*A*A (93-94%) but it would be the LNAT that would betray me and get me rejected lol

According to my friend, QMUL is in a sketchy area but it's a good uni for sure, City you can't compare to any of the other UofL, and for the rest just don't bother. Hope that helps!

Thanks for your response and best of luck!

I hope you enjoy studying here and I also think you have a great chance of getting an offer from Kings
How did you prepare for the LNAT? And how did you find it?

If you only want London I'd say UCL, King's, and QMUL with good grades. Then I'd probably say City and SOAS.

Haha thanks!! I really hope I can get in

I did a lot of preparing because I thought it was hella hard. I did Arborio at first then stopped because it was more difficult then the questions given on the exam. Then I switched to private tutoring which only really helped with my essay not MCQ. Then I did The Lawyers Portal and the practice section A on the LNAT website. Hope it pays off haha.

What about you?

Hey! Congrats! That's a great achievement! If I get rejected from KCL and UCL I'll firm City so it's a bit of a last resort for me. Though I do think it is a good university, I'd say there are better and higher ranked options. What were the other unis you applied to and got offers from??
