Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Last year I received my GCSE results and did not do very well, or aswell as I would have liked to. I gained 2 A's, majority B's and 2 C's (one being in maths :/ ).

    This was mainly due to me not trying my best, but at Alevels I worked very hard and being honest, found it much easier. All the practice exams leading up I gained A grades in all my subjects (English lit, history, politics and biology). My teachers are also expecting to me to achieve A's this year.

    I am sure I will meet the requirements needed for law, I have also done a handful of work experience and extra curricular activity at school. I will also attempt to write an excellent personal statement.

    Will my GCSE's still lower my chances of getting in, even if I do very well at alevels?
    Any advice is very much appreciated and thank you in advance
