A Pass on the GDL, and a 2.2 at undergraduate- Is the LPC worth it?

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    I received a 2.2 in Biochemistry, and recently took the GDL. I received an aggregate mark of 57%, with a very poor 45% in crime. I have good work experience (the FRU, starting my own business, being offered a place as a school governor, publishing a opinion piece and paid political work as well being elected to internal party positions), but will this be enough to compensate for my poor grades? I am not exactly from a well off family, and all my income will go on debt repayments if I don't get a TC.

    I am taking additional models to get an LLB, and will probably do the same to get an LLM if I do the LPC next year. But is it worth the risk? Do I have a realistic chance landing a TC? I want to work in Human Rights and Public law, which I understand is particularly difficult to get into.

    Any Advice? #EditTo be clear I also only got a 60 in con and ad- which wont help a Human Rights law application.
