KCL with 2.2 degree


Gauravmj
Hello! I'm a prospective LLM student from India. I have completed my BA LLB Hons. with 5.71 CGPA (out of 10). I've worked with several govt. agencies and such as National Human Rights commission and Ministry of External affairs and have also been employed as a Judicial clerk under Chief Justice of a High court and assistant under a Member of Parliament and thus I have strong LOR. I was wondering if it would be possible for me to get an offer without meeting the minimum requirement ie. 2.1 degree (as mentioned on Kings website) ? Thanks

Have you already applied because if not the application deadline has passed I believe. If you have, a 2:2 isn't great but you have a couple of things going for you, you have decent work experience and you're a foreign national which means KCL are more likely to accept you because you bring in more money to the uni than an EU national/UK national. So while I'd say that it's unlikely from my limited knowledge on admissions gained through osmosis and conversations with friends in similar situations I'd also say that it's not impossible nor unheard of.

I am planning to apply next year, although I have unconditional offers from Durham and QMUL for this. Still confused whether to go this year or wait till next year. P.S. I just graduated this year only.
