Hello all

I've applied to the University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, to do the LLB in Law. I'm predicted AAB but they gave me an offer of AAA. I just got my a level history retake back and I got 100%! So I'm thinking about putting Exeter down.

Do you think I should contact them about changing my offer to an AAB? The B is in drama and theatre studies and the A is for history and english lit, which I imagine count for more. My head of sixth form would help me appeal as well, and I know someone who's already done it!

Is there any chance of having my offer transferred to the cornwall campus? The grades required are lower so I'd feel a lot safer.

Thanks!

Why would you want to go to the Cornwall campus, when the Streatham one is supposedly better?

Streatham isn't better than Cornwall, it is just more established. Cornwall has a smaller range of Courses and modules in those courses to choose from because it is alot smaller than Streatham. It has only been around for about 5 years and offers a very different university experience. Around 2500 students in total and a more rural area, but from what I hear the nightlife in penryn and in near by falmouth and truro is as good as any uni.

It really depends what you want, research cornwall and see if you would be happy with an offer from them. Exeter Streatham is in very high demand and is very unlikely to accept people who don't meet the entry requirements. So if I was in your shoes, I'd research Cornwall and see if I like it then after properly considering what I want to do (how likely I am to get that B to an A, how much I like my insurance etc...) I'd ring up, theres nothing wrong with asking a question

Good Luck! xoxo

From someone who has spent time working in the legal industry in the city, I can confirm that straight law is much more prestigious than the law and business option. Even if you are thinking about pursuing a career in corp/commercial law, employers would prefer the single honours LLB option at Streatham. The reason for this is that the Streatham LLB option gives students a more rounded and intense view of different areas of law - you could say these are perceived as being slightly more difficult compared to the business options at Penryn. You are not expected to specialise in one area until after you've completed the training contract stage anyway. If you want to understand why the law and business option is less prestigious then just look at the course content of the modules offered in the law and business course. There are a lot of 'soft' courses such as Social Enterprise Management, Workplace Wellbeing and Digital Technologies and the Future of Work. These are the types of courses that you would find in an easier business studies degree. Also remember, you can still do corporate and commercial law as options in the Streatham LLB.
