    Hi all,

    I am 18, due to family problems I left school half way through with a B in GCSE English and an E in Maths, a B in French, ICT, Sociology. I have never studied a-levels.

    Fortunately I am able to concentrate on my myself and thus my education, finally. I am currently completing a 1 year Access to HE course in Social Studies. I anticipate finishing with the vast majority of credits awarded at Distinction.

    I am an ambitious person and I am aiming to apply to Leeds, York, Cardiff, Warwick and Exeter to study Law. Is this realistic? As I am unable to compare my circumstance and qualifications which leads me to uncertainty and anxiety.

    Anyone studying any degree, especially Law who you know has done an Access course prior, please let me know

    Thank you

    Go to the uni entrance page for each course and check what it says about btec. It should say the level of distinctions and merits it requires. If you meet that level then you can apply.

    Be warned you will almost certainly be required to have GCSE Maths.

    If they accept access courses for the degrees in question, you get the grades, you resit your maths GCSE (you'll likely need a C), you write a suitable personal statement, and get a good reference, then you'll have a reasonable chance of getting a place.
