If 66.33% is your overall mark then that equates to a mid-2:1 degree level. This, I'm afraid, is not enough to apply for the LL.M at Cambridge - you need a First overall i.e. 70%+ to do the LL.M at Cambridge.
However, at UCL, Kings etc it may be that they require a minimum of 2:1 to do the LL.M at any one of their universities - I'd recommend looking at their websites to find out the requirements.

Based on the Indian degree classification system, I would not say you are instantly ruled out of Cambridge. My reading of the conversion from Indian LLB % to UK Classification system is that a 65% in India is equivalent to a UK 1st. Furthermore, the Cambridge LLM website seems to suggest for overseas qualifications, it is more a question of coming in the top handful of students in your graduating class.

By extension, you are also not ruled out of UCL, LSE or Kings, as they generally ask for lower grades the Cambridge.

I apologise if this is an incorrect reading, but have a look at the following degree classification convertor: http://85.92.87.111/~artcypr/comparability.html

In any case, if you are considering applying to Cambridge, it will have to be next year as the deadline passed on the 15th November.

Best of luck with your applications!

Has the status changed from 'awaiting consideration by department' on the self service account for anybody? All my documents have been uploaded but no change so am wondering.

Also, if we had not answered any questions or missed something on the application it would have told us right then right?? I was reviewing my app and my signature is missing at a spot so am a little concerned. I reviewed it several times but this seems to have skipped past me.

Mine is still 'awaiting consideration by department' too.
I'm pretty sure it would've told you that you missed something before you submitted application - I wouldn't worry about it. I don't remember a signature bit. And also how would we put in our signature if it's all done online? (My application was all online anyway).

Some bit below declaration and data protection. Seems to have just been generated after the submission of the application.

I have not done so either ( the signature bit ). New things to worry about! Anyone volunteers to check with the Graduate Admissions Office? I have already troubled them enough. I am freaking out because of that disclaimer that says that they will not consider applications without the signature.

The Personal Data Sheet and section C(3) Declaration and Data Sheet. I really have no idea as to how this could have skipped our collective minds!

Well, I think I ticked a box and agreed to everything they said.
But I am not sure anymore and I can't check because I don't have the copy of my application anymore :/

That is unfortunate! Atleast you can give yourself the benefit of the doubt. I am staring at hard evidence here. Anyhow, how are you supposed to sign the damn thing?

I seriously don't think we have to sign it. Before we sent off the application that error report pointed out every invalid character etc... Surely it would have indicated that a whole section was missing?

Let's hope so. Or someone can just get in touch with Suzanne Wade and ask her. As stated earlier, I have asked her one too many questions. I am leaving this to someone else.
