    Well, we just read Tort in our first year, criminal in our second. The reading list would pretty much be the textbooks and casebooks that we use, and I wouldn't encourage you to start reading those until you're actually at university. Maybe background reading into the Law would be more useful...
    Thanks for the info! However, I'm still kind of worried because I heard horror stories of students in Nottingham ending up with 2:2 even after hardwork...

    You'll find such stories everywhere. I'm sure you've even encountered such people back in Singapore.

    It's not just about how hard you work or how much time you spend on your work - it's about HOW you work in the first place. Technique!

    Yeah, I know. Hope someone would share his or her technique for getting 2:1 and above...Nevertheless, I would not know which technique is suitable for me until I start my course Now, the only thing I could do is just to read the books and get a feel...

    This should be the last place you visit Alvin...there's no reason for you to be on a UK-based forum! :eek: Well done on finishing the exams though.

    Really, you shouldn't worry yourself too much about it until you get to university. I was really apprehensive at first too, thinking I was gonna crash and burn. But I got my first Tort essay back, and I got a first for it! Once you get to university, then you can get a feel of what the work is like and then develop your technique and fine-tune your study skills.

    Anyways, a good background reading into the Law would be books like Glanville Williams' Learning the Law and The Law Machine by Marcel Berlins and Clare Dyer. I found reading those books before entering uni to be quite useful.

    Thanks for the info! Do you still have The Law Machine? Do you intend to sell it?
    By the way, would you like to share your technique?

    Yeah, I still have The Law Machine, but am intent on keeping it though. They should sell it at Kino, at least that's where I got mine.

    For me there wasn't really a technique to it. As long as you know your stuff, there shouldn't be a problem. Make sure you know your cases well, especially the point of law associated with it, and you should be fine. Then again, it helps if, like me, you love writing essays.

    Chances are not many of them will be hanging around here, especially at this time of the year.

    Some will probably pop by closer to this year's round of applications.

    No - it's usually been on the Saturday of the second week.

    Don't know about this year though.

    Nope.

    In 2004, it was the Saturday of the first week. I know based on a copy of the proposal I have.

    In 2005, it was the Friday of the first week: http://72.14.253.104/search?q=cache%...ient=firefox-a.

    In 2006, it was the Monday of the second week: http://www.vjc.moe.edu.sg/02_calendarOfEvents.shtml.
