    hi all,

    i am currently a 1st year law llb undergraduate at a university in london

    i got there after doing a law foundation course in england quite well and before that completing high school of course

    since i'm naturally looking for applying to vac schemes next year and later on to tc's, i have been seeing that the firms tend to list a levels in one way or another
    and generally through this forum i see that a big number of people is in possession of such qualifications and they had to get outstanding grades in that in order to get to their institutions.

    my question therefore is that while i do appreciate the fact that the spotlight would be on the second and third years of university, less so on this year, could lack of doing a levels in any way jeopardize my career prospects ?

    Your first year uni grades will be important if you apply to vac schemes in your second year, don't under estimate how important they are.

    A lot of firms will consider access courses, especially where they will get UCAS points under the new UCAS tariff system. You just need to have done very well in that access course (and your previous studies), just like you will need to have if you had taken A-levels or the IB.
