Does Oxford BCL Ever Make Offers to Applicants with an Achieved 2.1 and Predicted 1st?


Hello,

I'm an international student studying for an LLB in the UK (going into my final year). I currently have a high 2.1 (68.5%) from a good Russel Group uni. I am predicted to earn a first, having achieved straight firsts this year. Per my university's policy, given that I am within 2% of a first and have scored several, they will round me up so long as I maintain a 68%. Nonetheless, I am fully capable of bringing my score to at least 70% next year.

However, I performed absolutely abysmally during my first year and finished with a high 2:2. Fortunately, this didn't count for very much in regards to my degree classification.

I know Oxford says that they want a 1st, but for students who are currently at a very high 2:1 with a predicted 1st, do they ever issue conditional offers? If so, how often does this happen? Furthermore, do the conditional offers generally dictate a specific percentage, or merely a degree classification?

Thanks!

chicken so...
From what I understand, they are rather strict on the 5% requirement.

This is what they say on their website:

Applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class undergraduate degree with honours (or equivalent international qualifications) in law.
