    So today I received my semester one results back for Criminal Law and Justice, law of obligations and contemporary issues in law and justice, and I received a low 2:1 in all of them (below 65), however only 1 of them was an exam, which was my best result. I have modules this term which are more exam heavy. However, what I want to ask is will law firms see these results as "low" or are they used to seeig 2:2 for first results? Thanks

    Yeah, they're relatively low, however they're only first year results and therefore not something to overly worry about.

    Try not to worry too much about it. Ask for feedback, identify your weaknesses and then work on improving your approach for next time. They are your first semester results and you have plenty of other opportunities to demonstrate that they aren't necessarily representative of your ability, if in fact they are not. If it helps to put your mind at ease, my first semester results were 2:2s. I went on to graduate with a first and get pupillage.

    Thanks for taking the time to answer whilst i did put quite a bit of work in, i did sort of slack off during the xmas hols and didnt actually redraft or edit my coursework, so im sure i could improve. generic feedback has been given and i will attend the drop in session for proper feedback
