    Hello!

    I am a student from Singapore and have just recently received my Singapore-Cambridge GCE A Level results, which was taken in the year 2008. I would like to enquire if I stand a realistic chance in law at UCL given my H2 grades are AAB in Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics. I have a B in General Paper and Chinese Language, and an additional C for H1 Economics too. I would be presenting some research achievement that I have accumulated in my college days too. I will be applying for deferred entry in 2011.

    Would my GCE O Level results weaken my application in anyway? It wasn't too ideal in that case as it is dominated by a majority of A2s and B3s.

    Hey,

    UCL Law generally requires AAA but since LNAT is also taken into consideration, you might still stand a good chance depending on how well u do for the latter. UCL is not as concerned abt O levels as LSE. If u write a really convincing personal statement i believe you have a chance of getting in.
    In any case, if u are serious abt doing law in uk, ur grades will prolly get u into Kings, which has a reputable law sch.

    Geez, thanks! Been preparing my PS since April, so I'm like pretty much done with it. As for KCL, it seems that they have a higher entry requirement? (correct me if i'm wrong)

    For UCL, it's AAA, whereas for KCL, it's AAAb. I'm supposing that the subscription rate to both colleges is the same, meaning the applicant to place ratio, since KCL is able to accommodate 250 students whereas UCL around 150.

    As far as i know, kcl is less selective than ucl, which is the most selective law sch in london. i know of law students in lse who got rejected by ucl etc.

    I know ppl getting into kcl with AAB. In any case, u shld prepare ur ps and give it a shot. kings has a very good law sch too, though its overall ranking is slightly lower

    Hmmm, it's true that LSE is pretty fussy with GCSE grades right? Hmm, alright, I think I'll replace Oxford, which I'm sure it's a long shot, with KCL
