UCL/Cambrige/Oxford - applications for 2015/2016


JBME1986

Hi guys,
Does anyone know if it is possible to apply to UCL, Cambridge or Oxford (and receive a conditional offer) without the IELTS concluded at the time of the application?
I know this is possible for LSE and KCL...
Many thanks
J.

I suggest you enquire directly at the universities.

It is possible for UCL as well. I got a conditional offer last year requiring only the proof of English Language Proficiency.

Hope this help,

Hey Hi,

My application form for the BCL states "Transcript: Please upload between one and five OFFICIAL transcripts below"

But I am currently in the final year of my study and thus I do not possess a consolidated transcript for all the Term Exams (Semesters) that I have given. I am in possession of different transcripts for different Semester Exams (Totalling 8 Transcripts for the 8 Semesters that I have given till date). So am I permitted to submit Scanned Copies of all of my 8 Transcripts which detail my marks for all the Semesters that I have given till date, or any other method is to be followed? They say that 5 Transcripts are allowed? What does that mean?

Thanks

Combine the transcripts of two semesters into one document (google PDF merge - many options available on the internet). For the last file, just include only the ninth semester. You would have specified in the form elsewhere that you are in the final year of your LLB degree

@JBME1986

I've no idea about UCL, but the KCL and LSE website states that you can be given an offer conditional on your language test (this is for the LLM and not a general statement). Ditto for Oxford, if I'm not mistaken.

The IELTS is also required for visa applications from some countries. Keep an eye on the slots available because only a limited number of people can give the IELTS at a time in a country.

My bad - I assumed you had the marks of your ninth semester. You could upload a document stating that the last two semesters marks are not available in the slot for the fifth year's file.

Hi. Can someone tell me what are the conditions usually attached to the offer for oxford? I'm right now in my final year of law school and I'm just 0.2% less than the marks required to secure a distinction. So I essentially hope to receive a distinction by the end of my final year, but will it be a problem if I mention Distinction expected in my form but don't ultimately secure it?

Thanks.

That is wilful and deliberate fraud, an assault on every honest applicant. In my county such an act constitutes a felony, dunno what nationality you're from that you seem so indifferent about it. Oxford doesn't have a fondness for such traits and usually there are 1-2 offers each year that get withdrawn at the time of admission formalities when such practices are caught. I must remember to make mention of this when during my next transatlantic call back home.

Personally, I wouldn't write "distinction expected" no matter how confident I felt because that seems like tempting fate. Besides, it seems unnecessary since they will see your marks on your transcript. As for it being "fraud", I am not quite so sure. For example, when applying for jobs before graduation everyone puts "JD- expected in 201x". I don't think that's fraud because it's an accurate statement. Having said that, "distinction expected" sounds a bit presumptuous to me.

Well, those are some strong statements that you people are making out there...Before you adjudge me as a criminal, i think I should be given a hearing...Well, firstly, the oxford form
Asks you categorically that what grade do you EXPECT (applicable options in my case being pass and distinction). So it is reasonable to assume that they wish for you to estimate what you expect by the time you finally finish your degree and that's what I'm doing: telling them my expectation.....Secondly, as I mentioned, I am 0.2% less of distinction marks at the end of my 4th year and I reasonably/logically/legitimately expect that I will cross the distinction marks after my 5th year...I am sure of this since I know how my university examination assessment patterns are. I was only asking that if one in million cases it does so happen that I am not able to achieve my expectation, then what.

And in all this, the important word being used in the form and in my post is : EXPECTATION, please do note that. So before categorising someone as a fraud, I really hope that you think about it twice. Thanks for the reply though :)
