    Well I received offers from various places (Warwick, Exeter etc.) but, like I said, the bereavement ruined me so I had <10% attendance, didn't even open the books for a couple of subjects and didn't even turn up to one of my exams in the end so didn't even come close to meeting my offers - which were AAA. I ended up at Reading, but dropped out.
    Oh wow. What were you going to study?

    Politics, or some combination (PPS at Cambridge). I wanted to study English at Oxford really, but didn't want to have to arrange to take the ELAT.

    Such is life

    My English coursework was marked by the head examiner of Edexcel, which was worrying as it had only taken me a couple of hours to throw together. My teacher had taken it to some sort of conference to check she was marking correctly or something.

    There are many excellent English departments, and many more highly qualified lecturers than there are positions for them. As such, you can access a pretty reasonable standard of education with even modest grades.

    Oh wow. I am considering either Law or English, I like the idea of Law but then what if I don't end up going into Law afterwards as a career?

    A law course will be very similarly useful to an English course in the general job market. As a subject, law is academically rigorous and would equip you with many of the same skills. The same is true of any academic subject (history, classics, economics etc.). Many people enter the legal profession having studied all kinds of other things for their first degree - indeed it is sometimes considered preferable to have done so. I would suggest studying what you think you will most enjoy.

    That is so true, wise words. I like Law, I think I want to study English at UCL however.

    I never wanted to study in London, though when I briefly also intended to apply for law I was probably going to apply for KCL. If you do apply for law you can take the LNAT which is laughably easy to score well on.

    My lover's got humour....

    I like the idea of getting work experience at a media production company, that's why London appeals to me. Your a Hozier fan?
