Uni course application help.

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

    Basically i wanted to do law at uni. I didn't do very well and got BCDD in AS level. The uni course i wanted to do was at newcastle or sheffield but for law the grades were AAA to get in. I was thinking of doing business instead which is AAB. I know i can get the grades i was just having a rough time and didn't revise enough. would i still be considered for this course or would it be better to apply for business because the grades are lower and then ring up on the day if i do exceptionally well and ask to change to law. Or is there no point applying because my AS grades are too low. Any help would be appreciated because i don't want to mess my application up.

    The grades for Business are only one grade lower, but there's more competition for Law anyway. Try ask your teachers to predict you as high as possible, and then work hard to achieve those grades. I'd say there is still a point in applying, but also apply for unis that match your AS grades just in case.
