    You need to check the entry requirements and talk to your teachers about what you can realistically do and achieve.

    (Original post by Claudiec)
    So i am doing AS Law, Philosophy and Politics, and i failed Phil and Politics.
    Got a E in Law, but thinking to ask for remark as one of the unit i got 55, 5 more marks to have C, which if succeed i might have D/C overall.

    As what happened, i'm thinking to do 2 BTEC (business and IT maybe?) and retake my Law again.

    But what confused me is, if i'm doing BTEC fast track, and luckily pass my Law and getting C/B(i hope in A2), will i earn enough point (at least 120) to get in UNI? And do most of the uni (of course not asking those top 20s), accept BTEC if i am applying Law?
    There are so many law courses out there no-one will know the answer to your question off the top of their head. You need to check out UCAS Search to find possible courses.

    However, you will need more than 120 points to stand a good chance of securing a place for law, and AS Law on its own would probably not be enough. The remark is unlikely to secure you the additional UMS you need to improve the overall grade, I'm afraid.

    Finally, have you thought through why you want to study Law? That you haven't done as well as you hoped suggests it may not be the best choice for you.
