    Hey there guys, I'm considering either doing a part-time GDL with BPP/UOL.

    Or alternatively, a 3 year LLB with: Warwick, Nottingham, Birmingham (lesser extent Leeds and Exeter) - application in process for Bristol.

    I currently have an offer from Warwick, but am unsure whether I would want to do first year again - especially as I am now older (23), however perhaps the prestige element outweighs this?

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have a decent result in your undergraduate degree then just go for the GDL. A postgrad LLB is only really necessary if you need to boost your academic performance, and even then your undergrad results will still be looked at by most legal recruiters.

    I'm expecting my undergrad result to be a 2:1 or less likely a 1st. However, my A levels are fairly poor AAB.

    Do you still think this applies?

    If your alevels are an issue to a firm then they will still be an issue even if you do the LLB.

    Only study an LLB if you want to study law in depth. It won't necessarily help your employment prospects, especially if you already have a strong 2.1 degree under your belt and what are actually prettt reasonable A-levels.
