I have bad a-level BUT I have a 2.1 LLB , LLM, was President of my uni law soc, play instruments , part of music soc commitee, part of law school board, helped at uni open days, took part in mooting in my second year, trained as a volunteer CAB advisor, good legal work experience (london and regional mini pupillages (3!), work experience in a small firm and an eversheds vac scheme) and still no luck with a training contract, so i have no clue what firms want
From what I've heard Eversheds vac scheme is pretty hard to get on, so you did well there.

I got Eversheds also ... and should be hearing back from BLP today or sometime this week!

Ethereal did you ever think it might be your references, maybe you weren't too good on your vac scheme if that didn't lead to a training contract ... hate to point out the obvious.
