    Everyone at my school dropped it (probably 80% of people tbh), as it was poorly taught, may be better in your school but we were the first year to do it at mine and teachers seemed to be lost! They even wrote letters to chosen unis explaining their mistake and why most students only had 3 AS levels
    Oh no that's the same at my school!! I hope the teachers know now what they are supposed to do after most of the students at my school dropped it too! I don't get why they changed it to Pre-U, they should've just stuck with traditional A-levels and just allow any reforms to take place. What was so bad about pre-u history?

    I got 24 on LNAT and have AAB at A-level with A* in EPQ. I'm currently retaking some modules and am predicted A*A*A. Still haven't heard back for law. Do Nottingham look upon retakes unfavourably?

    Yeah, I think it's a great uni in terms of job prospects. But I think it's going to be my insurance choice in case I don't get the grades for Leeds. ( I'm still waiting on Nottingham otherwise they'd be my firm choice instead of Leeds) wbu?

    I have the same question.. Have read previous comments but still I am not convinced whether QMUL law is better than Manchester kaw or vice versa. Btw, when did you apply to qmul and how long have you waited before you received an offer from qmul? Thanks

    I'm thinking of making it my firm, I think AAB is a high requirement but I really understand why. I want BPP which a private uni in London to give me an offer as they would be my firm, if not they'll be my insurance. I've heard really good things about Leeds though, I have a friend who studies a similar subject there and loves it.

    Bpp will surely give you an offer. When did you apply for BPP. I received mine 2 days after I submitted my ucas application. Are youa also an international student?

    My son got an offer from Nottingham and he is resitting a module and fast tracking another A level in a year. He did have extenuating circumstances. Hope you hear soon. I think they have a lot more offers to give out.

    Both are very good but the mc firms seem to favour Bristol. Bristol is ranked much higher in the world.

    I agree that both are very good law schools. But, when it comes to ranking, Durham consistently ranks higher than Bristol:

    http://www.thecompleteuniversityguid...rankings?s=Law
    http://www.theguardian.com/education...-table-for-law
    http://www.go-llm.com/times-good-uni...-law-rankings/
    http://www.milkround.com/staticpages...versity-guide/

    I fully appreciate that ranking does not mean everything. However, if different rankings tell a similar story, it may well be unsafe to disregard the rating.

    Also, according to this survey (as far as I'm aware, this is the most comprehensive survey), the bigger law firms tend to favour Durham: http://www.chambersstudent.co.uk/med...university.pdf .

    Ranking at that level is meaningless. Both are recognised as 'good Unis' and no Law firm (or any other employer) keeps these sort of tables pinned to the wall. They do not have conversations like 'He graduated from X Uni in 2015, I think they were just below Y on the 'Newspaper Making A Lot Of Money' League Table that year?'.

    Btw, just because there are a collective of certain grads at one Law Firm actually means nothing. Its essentially a combination of co-incidence and more Durham grads applying there. Ultimately it comes down to how well you write a job application and then perform at interview. They will have rejected plenty of Durham grads as well.

    Firm the Uni where you will feel comfortable. It really is that simple at this level.
