Okay, So I am currently in year 13 and starting to apply with UCAS for university starting in 2017.
My number one choice is The University of Birmingham to study Law with Criminology. The average entry requirements are AAA, but the policy states if you got an A/A* for EPQ the requirements are AAB.
My AS grades were not the greatest, CCE. I was told today that two of my predicted grades were a B and a C - which sucks.
is it a waste to apply for universities with higher grade requirements, bearing in mind that I am on the new spec of A levels, where AS does not contribute to my final A2 grade.
I feel really bummed about it because i had my heart set on studying Law with criminology, especially at Birmingham, but i am having a difficult time finding the same course with lower grades needed.
also, I have been given feedback on my personal statement and told that it is of high standard. I also had some work experience shadowing a Judge and took part in the bar mock trial competition. will these things help me, or is there really no point.
Is there also any point in trying to talk to my Teachers?
Thanks so much, and sorry that this is so long, I'm freaking out.
