    I am currently studying A2 and unfortunately did not get good enough grades at AS due to, well laziness basically. But this year Ive shaped up, but it was too late however.

    I am now applying for a computer course as this is my second favourite course/study area.

    I wish to do a Law Conversion course; GDL/CPE after I finish the degree Ive applied for. THe thing is, Ive read about it being easy to get accepted and how you can accepted with any degree, but ive had people tell me its very hard to get on them now and you can only get on with analytical degrees such as ENglish/History etc

    I know it may be hard to speak for 3 years down the line but how hard is it to get a place on these courses?

    Why did you apply for Computer Science if you want to do law in three years ? No because you will have to write a PS and do interview, and I can't see any reasonable way to justify it.

    These courses are designed for people from any discipline. You will not struggle to get a place on a course. There are more places than suckers
    candidates. However, you will almost certainly need to fund the course yourself. Although some large law firms will provide funding for the GDL this will tend to be only for those with very good academics.

    You will struggle on the course if you do not keep up essay writing skills. You should choose modules on your computing degree that allow you to do this.

    I did the GDL last year, it was easy to get on, I didn't even need to write a PS. Getting a TC is another matter of course.
