    a mate of mine had extenuating circumstances during their exams but was still given a third even though she got a 2.1 every year before.

    now, they feel like they want to take a year out, get good legal experience, then prove herself by doing a LPC.

    they want to work in a high street firm anyways, but i tell them not to do it, cos it mite be a waste, what shud i tell them?

    can they still do it?

    help.

    Your question is muddled but anyway, if she wanted to do law as a career she should have gotten legal experience long before, like through work experience placement schemes. If she is really that set on a legal career maybe she could do some volunteer legal work until she gets a trainin contract, and advise her to not set her heart on a high street firm too much.
