So I was looking at a college and I really want to do law. I saw on one of the colleges I want to attend to that 101 people did law and only 39.6% got an a* to a b. Is it a hard a level?

I’m a second year alevel law student and I will warn you it is very challenging. There is lots of detailed information you have to memorise extremely accurately. I am not trying to put you off, if you feel like that’s something that appeals to you then go ahead also note that in order to go into law in the future you really don’t need law at alevel. Good luck with whatever you choose

I do law, English lit and history and I’m in year 13. Law is my easiest subject, the concepts are not ridiculously hard to understand it’s more about the amount of content that there is but you will find that in any subject. I was skeptical about picking it at first but I’m glad I did because it is definitely the easiest one and quite interesting. I’m on ocr and Half of the marks in questions are literally just memorising information without application. For example we get a 25 marker and 10 marks are literally just on you recalling all the elements and cases of that part of law which is just memory. Again section 1 of all our papers is just memorisation. Then 15 marks to apply the scenario you get in the exam which is not too difficult if you understand the concepts. I was working at a C in year 12 mock and that was because I tried to revise everything in an all nighter but now I’m at an A because I actually started spacing my revision out. It may depend on how your school is teaching it as 39% is a bit low but then again grades are a big representation of how hard people have studied for them. We just did a law mock and people came out with fails simply because they had not revised. There is no doubt that in the college you are looking at, people will have tried to cram the info last min and it just doesn’t work. Personally I think law is not simple, but not complete rocket science either. Also depends on the teacher and your work ethic.
