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

    Im aiming to enter the police force in the fast track programme and hopefully transfer into the CID after 2 years, after going to UNI and doing LAW

    I just got my GCSE Results and got the following:
    Maths = C
    Physics = C
    Chemistry = C
    Biology = C
    French = C
    Geography = C
    English Lit = B
    English Language = B
    History = B
    Religious Education = B
    ICT = A

    Starting A level i will be doing the following:
    English Language

    In A Level i aim to do more study and hopefully do a lot better than i did in GCSE, i have been told that A levels matter a lot more when it comes to UNI. But
    I understand on their webstire they say they dont have any GCSE requirements but will the fact i have poor GCSE hinder me going to cambridge and will somsone who has better GCSE than myself be considered more so over myself

    Good A level grades can make up for average GCSE grades, but Cambridge doesn't offer a degree in criminology (edit: just noticed you changed the thread title to law).

    If you have really great A levels, an excellent personal statement and you perform well at interview then your GCSE grades will probably be ignored. Admission tutors understand that people develop at different times and not everyone performs well in exams when they're 16.
