Hi, I'm Liz but might as well call me a clown.Watch
It all started when I received my GCSEs and then reality hit, making me more and more aware how I may not actual reach my dream job.
English Language: 5
English Literature: 5
Maths (Foundation): 4 (I'm just thankful I passed maths)
Chemistry (Triple): 5
Biology (Triple): 5
Physics (Triple): 4 (we happy I even passed tbh)
Religious Studies: 6
Btech Media: L2D
Then from there i scrapped into college, they lady doing my induction was like "ermmmm we do want kids with more 6 into college but because you got a 6 in Re we can offer you in" ( I go to a religious college) like girl why saying that, moral of that point kids do well in RE and you can get into college
Yeah, so for A-Levels I choose:
: Week 1 Points Test (w/c 09/09/2019): 11.5 (Pass)
: PLM (16/09/2019) : 6/10 (C)
: Law Making UT (w/c 07/10/2019) 19/25 (A)

: Exam Practice (04/10/2019): (Completed)
: Exam Practice (04/10/2019): 6/10
And for University I want to go to study Law:
University College of London (A*AA) Maths and English have to be 6
Kings College University (A*AA)
Lincoln University (back up back university) (BBC)
University of Huddersfield (BBB)
University of Bristol (A*AA or AAB)
And my college does our initial target grade based on our GCSEs, so at the moment they are targeted all at a C. But this hopefully will change by the end of first year hopefully .
To further explain why I'm calling myself a clown are for 4 main reasons:
1) My GCSEs are ****, okay that's a bit too harsh but they aren't AMAZING like the dream university want like UCL, the others din't have a set GCSEs requirement which I'm so happy about. I called up KCL and they said they dint look at GCSE but UCl said if the candidate is strong then we won't regret them but its up to the departments discretion if they want them or not.
2) I wanna do Law at uni so I took law at college to understand what law is like before actually doing it and from what we have done I don't like it. Like I didn't get the amount of active revision you NEED to do. I had that realisation last week, we did a test on Parliamentary Law making and the Juridical Control on Delegated Legislation and I got a A in it my first A and that was only because I did revision the night before and on the day, like ACTIVE revision for it with notes and everything.
HOWEVER, I heavily doubt myself because my teacher goes out in the open and says that when she looked at this guys profile she instantly knew he would get an A* and I was just like what did you see when you saw my profile. But its like I'm working on my confidence to do better and have a better mentality.
3) Again with my GCSE's they aren't that impressive compared to other people who want to take law at some of my chosen Universities and Law is a very competitive field so compared to them doubt I stand out. Because they are low I think law firms might reject me or universities my look at my GCSEs they won't pay attention to my application compared to those of higher GCSEs. I'm probably just over thinking this but I don't know.
4) My A-Level choose, mainly Film Studies even thought most unis accept it, I just feel like it makes me seem like a weaker candidate compared to those who have done a more academic subjects. But then again, it might just bee me who is overthinking all this.
Right, thank you very much for reading all of this I do apologise if there are errors in this. Hopefully you stick along with me on this crazy adventure of seeing whether I get into uni or not and how my grades go by each assessment.
It's weird how I started this because I was having such a **** time in law but now law is one of the lessons I enjoy the most and I'm actually beginning to understand jt. (I'll update my recent assessment)
Tbh your GCSE’s are good and you passed them all so well done! Your doing 3 A levels so if you get BBB or BBC you could still get into uni even with film studies depending on the uni. Have you any idea what you want to do in the future now then?
I wanna do law and hopefully get in Temple Inn and then there do my Bar Training after I passed my bar exam and then go into criminal court. and if chance will have it become a judge but who knows.
Are you in college too. Honestly I just think at the end of the day. We just have to work harder than other people with better GCSEs cause in a sense they already are one up us. I'm gonna start doing LNAT practices even though most of the don't require them but still. ya know
