(b) Academic profile (predicted and achieved grades)
Successful applicants for this programme are usually predicted A*AA in their A level examinations. At IB we ask for 38 points with 7,6,6 at Higher Level. For other international qualifications please see below. AS grades are also taken into consideration as these give the selectors a clear indication of your ability to satisfy the minimum entry requirement of A*AA at A level.
We look for excellent GCSE grades including the majority at A* and A. The Law selectors consider not just the number of top GCSE grades that you have, but also your overall GCSE subject profile. If you are currently following an A level or IB programme but have not previously studied a GCSE curriculum, you should still list your most recent school leaving qualifications in the relevant section of the UCAS form.
The Law selectors also consider applicants offering other UK qualifications, such as Scottish Highers, Access to HE or Foundation Courses or BTECs. For further information please see the general Entry Requirements.
Applicants who already have or a predicted to obtain a first undergraduate degree should have a compelling reason for applying to an LLB after their first degree.
Please remember, applicants who are predicted to meet our standard entry requirements are not automatically guaranteed an offer; much will depend on other factors such as commitment to the Undergraduate study of Law, as outlined in the personal statement.
The selectors have the discretion, in exceptional circumstances, to vary the standard A level or IB offer, if they feel it is appropriate to do so.
