    A bit nervous.

    Applied to LLB programs, both senior status and undergrad. On UCAS I listed my last two years grades in my majors - those at third and fourth year level. (4-year degree). They're not great, but not bad.

    My universities are requesting my full transcript, and I'm quite nervous because the first two years are bad. I mean, really bad. Various mental health issues got in the way, and, as I started uni at 16, I don't think I was mature enough to deal with it properly. I tried to power through, rather than asking for help and support....

    I didn't mention it in my PS, because I didn't want to seem whiney, but I am nervous.

    Anyone else in this situation? Did it work out for you, or rejections?

    Are you based in Scotland then? I know people there can start at 17, and if you skipped a year then that would make sense.

    No, I'm not. I was born in Bermuda. My high school followed the British system (sort of), so GCSEs then IB. But I left IB a semester in, went to Canada, skipped a year there, etc etc.

    Ah, that makes sense. This is a UK site so I sort of assume everyone on here is from the UK. Not too sure how to help you, unfortunately
