    Hello,

    I'm applying for the affiliated LLB at Queen Mary (they usually ask for a 2.1) in the net UCAS cycle, and looking to move onto the BVC after. I've got a few questions about my chances.

    I'm currently at the end of my 2nd year of a non-law (Film Studies) degree at Kingston University. I passed with a 1st last year and it's looking the same for my second year marks.

    Although I got high GCSE results, my A-Levels are embarrassingly bad, leaving me with a CDE set of results to work with.

    Compensating them, I've been a regular mooter in both high school and Uni (competing in a few national tournaments) and have a near perfect run of 1sts during the last two years of university.

    I'm applying for my first batch of work experience over this summer before I apply for Queen Mary. Assuming I get a week or two in a local firm, how do the devilishly handsome browsers of the Student Room rate my chances of a successful application to the LLB?

    If you're looking at a first when you graduate from Kingston I think that's all to the good – it does at least show that you are working hard to rectify the problems of your A-Levels / GCSEs.

    UCAS doesn't let you put your university grades by year down – just your overall degree mark which can either be predicted or confirmed.

    I think you have a fairly good chance – it might be worth contacting Jeremy Luz, the admissions officer, who's very friendly.

    As above, email them see what they say.

    Just for the future when applying to firms make sure you avoid any with A Level filters (on their website it will say something along the lines of AAB or ABB), because otherwise you might end up spending a long time filling in an application form only for it to be be binned by the system without a human being ever seeing it.
