    Hey guys,

    So I didn't really get myself into gear until year 12. For my GCSE's I only got 2A*'s, 4B's and 4C's (bad for a potential lawyer I know).

    For A level I got ABB in Religious Studies, History and Business Studies. Again I realise this isn't the highest for a lawyer but it does get me through most of the filters.

    I now study Philosophy and Politics at Leeds and am on track for a 2:1. I plan to do a GDL.

    Anyway, would my GCSE's hinder my chances of being a lawyer or are they not considered so much? Lastly does someone with my qualifications stand a good chance?

    I realise I'd have to apply to the more moderate firms (Mishcon De Reya and Eversheds etc)

    A lot of firms don't even ask for GCSEs. Those that do will be far more interested in your module grades and A-level results.

    The exception might be Maths and English where they might want to see a A/B grade but from my experience many won't care.
