Law at uni UK - UCL, KCL, LSE, Bath, Exeter

Hiya...
Im currently a year 11 student who is about to sit his gcses in a couple months....
For uni, I'd like to study law and my top 5 unis at the moment are:
UCL, KCL, LSE, Bath and Exeter

I think that in my gcses i will probably get 7s and 8s (five 7s and five 8s) and i looked at the requirement a level grades for law at these unis and to my knowledge, i need A*, A, A which i believe i can achieve.

Im wondering if I do get those grades at a level and if my lnat score is good, do you think i'd get into any of my unis of choice? I'm only asking since I know these unis are quite competitive and I worried that 7s and 8s wont be good enough...

your GCSEs are good for UCL, KCL, and Exeter. Bath doesn't do Law. LSE are really weird about GCSEs so there is a chance your GCSEs won't be good enough for them, but if you're a contextual applicant, you have a good chance with LSE. so long as your LNAT is good, and your personal statement too, you have a very good shot at most of these universities with those GCSEs.

Thank you very much for replying. I had no idea bath doesn’t do law but I was from between it and Nottingham anyway so I guess that settles it… do you think I’d still pose a decent chance of getting into there?

Also, what exactly is a contextual applicant?

Thank you so much though for the stuff you’ve said, about each uni though, I appreciate it a lot

in light of your educational circumstances universities may choose to give you a contextual offer, which is an offer with lower A level grade requirements - for example if you live in a more deprived neighbourhood, an area with low progression to higher education, or go to a poorly rated school for GCSEs amongst other things. as one example of what a contextual offer looks like, UCL's typical standard offer for law is A*AA, and if you meet contextual requirements they reduce it to BBB.

and Nottingham you should definitely have a good shot at too. Exeter and Nottingham don't require the LNAT btw

Oh right thanks for telling me about the contextual thing… I don’t think I’ll qualify for that in all honesty but that’s alright of course. And I’m glad to hear I’ve got a shot to get into Nottingham so thank you for all you’ve said and info you’ve given me🙂

Does Bath have a Law course? I thought they do not have a Law school. Please check.
