Long story short I was a completley different person in Year 11 and did no work and had no motivation. I thus only achieved 2A*'s 4B's and 4C's in my GCSES. The C's being in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
However I finally got into gear and started working hard. I achieved AAB at school and am now on track to achieve a 2:1 at Leeds university studying Philosophy and Politics. I plan to do a GDL (I realise the work that has to be put in)
Will law firms look down on my poor GCSES? Or will they not mind too much? Obviously I understand most candidates with have near all A's at GCSE, so I would be put at a disadvantage
Do law firms care about GCSES? Watch

Do not listen to what most people will say to you about GCSE's as on TSR anything less than straight A's in anything is seen as rubbish. Do not let these people get you down. They are a decent set of GCSE's, firms focus more on your A levels and want AAB-ABB minimum and set filters requiring these grades. I only got 1A*, 3As and 5 Bs myself at GCSE. Leeds is a good uni and is in the Russell Group. Try and get a top 2:1 or a 1st and work hard in your GDL, but also get some vac schemesLast edited by ORW; 01-06-2016 at 14:41.
