Hi,

So basically, I'm studying french, geography, history and biology but im not sure if i want to study geography or law at uni?
the only reason i'm more towards the idea of geography is because im worried law would be too competitive to get into, especially without english?

is this true? does anyone know if universities like bristol etc. accept students who didn't study english for law or does it put them at a disadvantage?

Thanks

Your combination is great, OP. There are no "subject requirements" for law (save, perhaps, insofar as the majority of them should be traditional). There are plenty of law students who haven't/didn't study English at A-level; it will not disadvantage you in the least.

Thanks! Did you find it difficult to get onto your law course? and did you enjoy it?

Sorry I've taken ages to reply :o:! I've very much enjoyed studying law; it is competitive and you do have to put the work in. But if you're prepared to do that; if you have a genuine enthusiasm for the subject and if you've done well thus far, there's no reason why you won't get a good few offers.

I am at Bristol now and by no means everyone studied English at A-level; I don't think it makes any difference whatsoever. Law is a subject which is new to the vast majority of students, everyone has different academic backgrounds, but they recognise that and start at a basic level. I personally took science A-levels (Maths, Chemistry, Biology), and I have adapted ok, I got a 2.1 for first year. Bristol place quite a lot of emphasis on the LNAT I think, meaning they give offers very late, I think around March.

I found it quite hard, but then so does everyone I think! You only ever receive a mark for the first part, where you have to choose which statement fits best after reading a passage. The UK average is usually around 17/18, and I got 23 or 4, I can't remember now, although there are a few people who I know got less. At the time, I thought my essay was rubbish but since I got an offer I guess it must have been ok, the time feels really short to write it though!
I do like my course- obviously law is a challenging and it's quite difficult times but I definitely think I made the right choice. I switched to Law with Study in Continental Europe after first year (you apply around Easter and places are awarded on merit after exam results) so had quite a busy first term!

I'm a first year at Bristol and I didn't take English, and have met plenty of other people who didn't

I found the LNAT challenging - it's difficult to know how well you've done when you sit it. I think I got 19...or it might have been 17. The essay wouldn't be hard if it wasn't for the short amount of time you have to write it
