Oxbridge Applications Transcript Requirements


brend_0

Does anyone know if Oxbridge require submission of non-law degree transcripts? As a North American applicant I hold two degrees (my law degree and an unrelated BA). I think both are technically considered undergraduate degrees.

My law degree grades are top 5% with prizes but my undergraduate grades are bad. When they ask you to be well within the top 10% of your class are they referring to your law degree or undergraduate or both? Can I only submit my law degree grades?

Thanks for any information.

Hey. All university level transcripts have to be submitted -- i.e. both your law and non-law degree transcripts. However, you need not worry about your non-law transcript too much as your law transcript will be determinative as far as your chances at admission go.

I had the same dilemma. My undergrad grades were shitty because I got depressed at some point. I was at the bottom of the barrel in terms of class rank. But I turned my life around in law school and graduated near the top of my class, also with prizes.

In my case, however, I went to the same uni for undergrad and law school. So I just submitted the transcript given to me since I can't separate the two anyway.

Good luck to us! Hopefully, Oxford will consider only our law school grades.

Just curious, what was your undergraduate degree in?

Very very similar situation for myself. I studied English, thankfully at a different institution. I only got accepted to law school on the back of a strong LSAT. I'd be interested to hear how the application goes. Best of luck!
