BCL conditions... watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys...

    This is really for successful UK applicants on the BCL course...

    As you may know, undergraduate students at Oxford take all their main exams at the end of their final year. Their degree class is thus determined by these 'finals'. (Note here that my academic condition for the BCL is 'attaining a first in finals'.)

    However, for those of us from other unis, this condition appears slightly odd - as you will all know, it is possible at many unis to get a first class degree without getting a first in your last year. (i.e. if you get very high second year results). Most law undergraduate's have their results based on exams and course during part II of the LLB (years two and three). So does the BCL condition mean a first class degree (as I assumed when applying and how it is described online) or does it mean a first class result in your final year specifically (average of 70)?

    So my question...assuming others have the same condition, is anyone worried that they will be forced to get a first in their final year (i.e. average of 70) as opposed to just getting a first overall?
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
