    ****ing horrible. Should've extended my gap year. It wasn't exactly a yr lol Just a few months. I already finished my a levels "late," like I was a bit older than other freshers. By like a yr or two. That wasn't the issue though. It was just...I weren't ready. Financially, self esteem wise, all that. But I somehow kinda pulled through with a lot of projection off my insecurities which made me very assertive during lecture discussions and very aggressive and disrespectful to the staff. I don't completely regret doing that though because it boosted my grades for showing my intellectual side that judging by my looks you wouldn't know was there and stuff, and as far as being disrespectful well it was deserved but certainly not wise. :\ Erm I wasn't employed either so it was relying on SFA to survive since my mum and I argued like mad my 1st two years at Uni and I was constantly having to fend for myself. So I was never in debt, just...skint. And it affected my energy and so I went into overdrive. Now I'm all worn out, penniless STILL, not finished STILL, unemployed STILL, grades dropping suddenly, and worse off than before. But with more...education. Yippee.

    Is History, English Lit, Economics and Government and politics good enough to get into Law at a Russell group University?

    I think that this will require a separate thread.. and yes, most applicants tend to have facilitating subjects such as History and English. A lot of it will come down to the actual grades you achieve, your personal statement (work experience, extracurriculars, further reading, etc), and the LNAT.

    you'll get in just fine. provided you have B's (there is terrible grade inflation in prospectus' at the moment, I know people at Manchester studying law with politics on 3b's, if you get that through clearing you can usually just transfer). As to how well regarded it is you may well be better off studying another traditional humanity then doing the law conversion as many employers tend to prefer this route. It makes you better rounded and generally more interesting to them if you do so.

    I have found it much better at uni, I prefer working independently and at my own pace rather than the structure of a levels. also been getting 2:1's and have the freedom to use my own references and articles I select unlike a levels which is a box ticking exercise.

    For me, parts we comparable, parts were easier and parts were more difficult. It often depends on how relevant the content from your A Levels is to the content on your degree - for example I studied physics at A Level, and Engineering at degree, so you would think it would follow on nicely.... but the specialism in A Level was quantum and nuclear. Bits flowed, bits didn't. Same situation with Maths - 'pure' fitted perfectly, 'stats' less so.
