i currently do applied law, applied business, a level media, core maths and EPQ
i have recieved so far this year in year 12
applied law: merit
applied business: merit
media: B
core maths: A
EPQ: B
i believe i can achieve better as i have been improving from the beginning and my teachers believe so as long as i stop being "lazy". i want to do a law degree in uni but i'm not sure whether i have what it takes compared to other people applying or should i just look into criminology, i love law so much but this quarantine has made me lazier with school work.

Hey strawberrymilk_!

We are living in an unprecedented time, so I wouldn't let your current standard of work reflect and change what you will study at university. If you like law and want to study it go for it! Have a look at which universities will accept your predicted grades and go from there

I did A-level Law so kind of similar and it is one of the most challenging A-levels. The EPQ runs for only 1 out of 2 sixth form years (normally). So that will give you more opportunity to revise etc. Choose a degree you want to do not one you’re just content with.

You want to study law, and your taking 2 A-levels, 2 BTEC & EPQ.
-Law is competitive and I think not having 3 full A-levels will mean the more competitive unis will be a struggle.

-If you look at all the unis which the LLB im sure you can some unis that will take your subjects but you may have to flexible.

-With criminology you'll probably have more uni options as it is far less competitive. Getting a BA in Criminology wouldn't shut the door on law, if after your degree you still wished to pursue law you could then do the GDL and become a lawyer.
