Currently in year 12 doing maths,german,georgapy,physics and further maths(but only to AS). I'm struggling to decided between Oxbridge universities for law. My GCSEs were 99998888887. Could anyone with experience or knowledge on this area please assist?
i havent been given predicted grades yet but my school has given expected grades of A* in geo and A in everything else. So ill aim for those as a minimum but i could do better if i put in the ffort.
Further aspects that you might consider include the fact that Cambridge’s law faculty is, in my opinion, much nicer than Oxford’s and the fact that Oxford requires you to sit the LNAT, which, as someone who did well in this test, I will readily concede can be somewhat luck-based
Reasons you might want to go for Oxford over Cambridge include the fact that they deselect more aggressively prior to interview. This means that there’s less competition at the stage of the interview, which could be a plus if you are worried about the interview and think your application qualities are stronger on paper than when you’re in front of someone. Their entry requirements are also lower than Cambridge’s (AAA vs A*AA), which I imagine is probably less stressful when it comes to sitting the exams.
Happy to answer any questions you might have.
Your subject combination is fine. I would, however, advise you to take 3 A-levels unless you’re interested enough in all 4 to enjoy doing them. There is no advantage to having more than 3 A-levels and indeed having 4 may render you less likely to achieve the offer requirements.
