I don't mean to be rude here, but when you're submitting applications, you often have to declare whether or not you have resat exams. You will still be at a disadvantage even if you do secure AAAA after resits, as there will always be candidates who have secured the top grades without having to resit.
On the point of elitism/racism; yes, there still is a lot of it in the Bar, but also in pretty much every area you can care to think of. But boundaries are there to be broken!
im actually watching it on iplayer as we speak...i enjoyed the girl who blamed her lack of experience on time and money when she hadn't even bothered to get a 1st in her undergrad degree.
I watched that programme on iplayer this morning, what a great insight into the world of the bar it gave me.
Junior moots terrified me so I would probably suck as a barrister, looking more at the LPC myself! Still, it was really good to see what happens behind the closeted world of advocacy , I have so much respect for oeople who choose this path. There are so many obstacles in the way that it takes immense dedication to get somewhere.
I'm not even through my first year yet so vac schemes are a whole year away yet lol but I have secured myself an Allen and Overy Insight Day in summer woo!
It was definitely worth watching. I can't help but feel sorry for that girl who failed one of her exams.
Does anyone know which universities they all attended? I know Catherine (Cat) went Oxford but what about the rest?
