A LEVEL LAW - need help

On the kings college university website it says that for the course law LLb you don’t need any required subjects but also it does not say the GCSE requirements , does it mean when I apply they would not say anything about GCSE ???

Hi, considering Kings asks for a minimum of A*AA for your A-Levels, it could be reasonably deduced that your GCSE's should range between A*-A for the best possible chances to be accepted. Other Russell group uni's ask for at least a 5 in both GCSE Maths and English. However, of course there have been many instances where applicants have been accepted for law into Kings despite not getting just A's and A*'s. There are other parts of your application that make a huge difference in whether you're likely to be accepted or not and the three that stand out include your A-Levels, PS and LNAT.
Hope this helps.

nono most people automatically convert 7-9 to A-A* because it we've used the letter system for... years

you should be able to get into Russell (double L) Group universities, as well as others (there are many good unis not within the Russell group)

Getting into a Russell group university would really depend on the score you achieve in your LNAT and the quality of your application including your PS. Getting into a Russell group university simply can't be determined by your GCSE grades, but it would help if they were outstandingly good.
