Okay, I'm applying for Law for Sept 2013, yay!
I'm going to be an Access student this year (I'm 21) as for reasons that are now dealt with I was unable to take my GCSE's/A-Levels when I should have and now subsequently this is the only way for me to get into University.
I think I've narrowed my Top 5:
I wanted to aim a little high but still apply for 2 schools that I knew I had a definite chance of getting into (talk about a lack of confidence).
Leeds requires me to get 60 credits at Level 3, 45 of which are to be at Distinction grade.
Manchester requires 60 credits at Level 3, 30 of which are to be at Distinction, 15 to be at Merit.
Northumbria requires 60 credits at Level 3, 3 to be at Distinction, 3 to be at Merit.
Cumbria and Leicester I haven't found out yet - but I'm calling tomorrow.
Has anyone been to the open days for these Uni's? Money is unfortunately tight and Leicester currently is my top choice but I just checked train fares for their open day and it would cost me £86! I just can't afford it. But I did read on the website that if you're offered a place then you're offered a day to go visit - so if I'm offered does it have to be my "firm" before I visit or not?
I'd really like to visit the Uni's before I accept offers.
The only one I'm applying to that I'm aware requires the LNAT is Manchester so I'm a bit stressed about that. I assume I'll have to book that myself?
Would anyone suggest books/authors to look at so I can study and get an idea? Or practice papers I can do to check how well I'd do?
Do most Uni's interview you before offering a place or no?
Sorry for all the questions - I'm worried and stressing probably far too much considering how early in the year it is!
EDIT: I just tried to go on the LNAT website to book my place to take the test and it's requiring my UCAS Personal Identifier. I haven't received this yet/don't know when I will so do I just wait until then to book?
