    I'm in a Russell Group uni that is in the top 10 in the UK for law. In my first year my Grandfather was diagnosed with terminal cancer and sadly died whilst I was in the middle of sitting my exams. I missed a bit of uni due to this and ended up with a 2.2 for the year. (This grade doesn't count towards my final grade).
    I am now in my second year and feel like there are things such as essay writing practice that I missed out on last year and this is one of the reasons that I am still receiving 2.2 grades in mock essays/exams. Just before my first pieces of work that actually counts for my degree was due to be submitted, my Grandmother was also diagnosed with Cancer. I will probably end up living with her to take care of her and therefore uni will be impacted in some way again. At this point in time I predict that I will come out with a 2.2 degree.
    I want to be a Crown Prosecutor and am considering the CILEx route.

    Does anyone have any advise about what they did in similar circumstances, how a 2.2 degree has impacted their legal career and in particular how the CPS treat candidates with this grade?
