    I really tanked on my Property Law unit this year, and I knew it as soon as I left the exam hall. I got 49 in the unit. Will this effectively take me out of the running for any TC's in the city now? It left my 2nd year average at 59%

    I have 2:1 in every other unit to date, and I am just about to start my final year, and have a vac scheme this summer

    If you've consistently performed at 2:1 standard, it's very likely to be considered an anomaly. Expect to be asked about it at interview perhaps but I wouldn't say you've blown your chances of a TC at all.

    Shouldn't be too much of a problem. However you MUST get a 2:1 at the end of your degree to be in the running for a TC with a city firm, so make sure your average is at least 60%.
