I am a first year law student and I have got 52% in one of my modules. I am applying to a Russell Group University for next year so would 52% be sufficient for them?

Can't know for sure but 52% is a low 2:2 so it's not amazing

Are you applying for entry into second or first year? Law transfers into second year barely ever happen because law courses are structured so differently, your modules would have to match up exactly with whatever uni you're applying to as otherwise you won't have done all of the qualifying modules. They would most likely ask for a 2.1 overall for your first year if they do accept a transfer, so 52% isn't great but you can bring it up with the rest of the year.

I'm applying to start again as a first year. In the module I got 70% in the first assignment (30% of the grade) and 52% in the second assignment (70% of the grade) which made it a 52% average.

They might not even look at your first year results then, you could email and ask the admissions team. That's a bit of a shame for you though that the bit you did really well in wasn't heavily weighted!

I got 28% on a law essay once. Hadn't gone to any of the lectures, and I'd bought the old version of the textbook so I had just completely ignored recent cases...

But, my friend who did history managed to get 7% in an essay once. Never understood what makes it 7 rather than 8 or 9...
