    I'm currently in my second year of Law at Sussex, and I'm looking around for Vac Schemes to apply to, only I have a somewhat unusual academic record... In terms of A-levels, I don't really have any. I won't get into the reasoning, but at the time of my A-levels, I wasn't able to complete all of them, and the ones I did get through, I did poorly in.

    In order to get into university, I made the decision to study law and sociology for a year through the Open University, did pretty well, got into Sussex Law off the back of that, got a 2:1 in first year, and now I'm here. Clearly, I am and always have been capable.

    I just wonder, how d'you think that will that go down when applying for Vac Schemes? Obviously I'm doing so with a view to earning a training contract, but from what I've read, they tend to look at A-levels, and I just worry that firms may balk at taking OU credits in lieu of them.

    I'm not expecting any solid answers, more just thoughts. I'll be going to a career fair this week, so I'll ask some firm reps whilst there, too.
