    Hi, I am looking to apply to the Pinsent Masons Gap Year Programme 2016 but I don't think the applications are out yet I am looking to apply to the London offices. Nope, no legal work experience but aim to get some this year + I have visited court cases and attended talks from specialized barristers and solicitors so I hope that works in my favor. At Uni I would like to study Law & Politics
    GCSE Grades- 2As,3Bs,3Cs&1Distinc
    AS Grades BCD subjects in history,politics and philosophy (mitigating circumstances) so re-sitting 3 modules to help my overall A2 grades
    To be honest I don't think my chances are high but it's worth a try

    Hey everyone
    I'm applying for the London offices
    GCSEs: 5A*s, 4As and 1B
    Predicted A2s: AAA
    Planning to apply for Law this year but honestly this seems like such a great opportunity, that I'd rather take the placement and do deferred entry
    Does anyone know when we'll find out if we've got it?

    Ok so I'm hardly the best contender but I might as well give it a try. It asks if I'm on track for A's and B's for A2, and I'm not sure what to answer to that? I mean, I have an A in Spanish already, and I'm getting an A/B in Sociology, but as I'm resitting a couple modules should I just go by what I'm predicted to have (which doesn't rely on my resits next summer) or by what I could achieve WITH resits?

    For some reason after entering all my qualifications it doesn't mark the section as fully completed. What am I missing in order to have the green tick on the application status bar next the secondary education field?

    I'm a bit late but I've also applied.
    I know it's early but I'm just wondering if anyone has heard anything. Looking at previous threads people started to get interviews around this time last year.

    I just received an email a few hours ago saying my application was being processed and I should receive a response by the 31st of December , not too hopeful though and wouldn't be too demotivated if I didn't get through.

    They don't start looking at applications until the deadline which was Friday, so don't worry! They will respond within 2 weeks.

    Oh cool!! I heard that after you get the 'application under review' email, which is after the confirmation one, they tend to give you a decision within 2-3 days, going off the threads from last year. I got that email yesterday, so should hear soon, we all should!!
