    Hey guys, j

    just wondered what everyone thinks are the best A levels i could do in a year to improve my Law application for next year?

    Currently I'm studying Law, Maths and English Language (predicted A*A*A) and wanted to do 2 or 3 A levels intensively next year to boost my application as I realise Law and English Language are both 'soft' options.

    What do you think the top uni's will think about this proposed extra year of study? It won't be to boost my grades from this year, so it's not like I'm studying my A levels over 3 years.

    Wot do you all think?

    For next year? Wait...you have 3 offers, right?
    Don't waste a year.

    hmm i guess, I just wanted to get into a better ranked uni for law

    You seem to be tackling it the wrong way round...

    You should be looking at a handful of Universities that you deem suitably 'ranked' that you wish to study it, if you know these already please list them so it makes it a bit easier.

    You should then look at what they actually require for entry and then compare it to what you have... then see what you need to do to gain entry.

    However, taking another year out may not be to your advantage, that fact it may have taken you 3 years to achieve what other students have done so in 2 years, could be viewed negatively.

    However it's probably more important in how you justify your situation to them too.

    An extra year out could serve well if you wish to look at pro bono, to further boost your C.V. and apparent aspirations in law.
