Hey folks,
having just found this board I thought that someone here might be able to offer me some advise on a few problems I am currently running into.

For many years I wanted to take up a law degree, however one thing led to another and instead I am working as a technical consultant for one of the worlds leading technology companies. (This was down to a fleeting interest I had, and the lure of bags of cash)
However I am now regretting my decision and wish to return to study, hopefully to follow my long term ambition of becoming a barrister. My first task is to be accepted onto the LLB (hons) degree course.

My thoughts so far have been to enter 3 A’ levels as a private candidate, completing all by next years May/June examination dates. With good grades, and my experiences in the work place I should stand a good chance of securing a place for full time study.

1. Firstly, do you think that a year is enough to complete 2 or 3 A' levels.

2. Does anyone have advice on entering as a private candidate?
I have been able to find almost no information on entering as a private candidate, and have run into several brick walls when contacting local colleges to see if they accept private entrants.

I dont know anything about entering as a private candidate but I'm pretty sure that you should take 2 years to do your A levels. You AS levels in the first year which covers the basics and A2 levels in the second which builds on the knowledge of the previous year.

I know the norm is to sit them over 2 years but I don't feel that it would be impossible to do over 1 year. I want to be considered for the next intake of students in 2004, if I could I'd try for this year.

It depends what A-Levels you take. Some its possible to do over a year, and some even less.
Which A-Levels are you thinking of?
