    Okay so I kind of have my heart fixed on Durham law at the moment. I'm taking ((I think)) eng lit, history, maths and religious studies for a level. They're my strongest subjects and I do really enjoy them. So aside from them - and making sure my grades are on peak form - and aside from work exp, what else can I do to help my chances? I do work at my local church and I'm doing gold DOFE as well.

    Just on the subject of work experience, try to get it in a law firm. Email and call a bunch of solicitor offices where you live and formally ask for work experience either in admin or in the courtroom.

    Always keep up to date on recent law happenings and cases. It'll build your knowledge and help for your personal statement

    That's all to be honest. Otherwise, just try and absolutely ace your AS/A-levels because succeeding in Law requires a top university.

    Good luck!
