Do you recommend it?
Are there any people who got into RG or Top Universities partecipating in this course?
Is it hard to get high grades?

Nope and no idea.

Just do A levels or access like everyone else.

why would you answer if you don't know anything about it?lol
I am unable to do the quoted qualifications because I come from another country and I would need t least 2-3 years to complete a levels/access before being able to apply for Uni.

I said I wouldnt do it.
Do go ahead though and see how much use it is for you.
Do you have aspirations to some sort of legal career back in your home country or are you expecting that to help you with some sort of career in the UK?

No i wanted to use it to get into Uni to study Law, since I saw that a lot of people got into very highly-ranked Universities (some even into Oxford!) by taking this course.

Ok good luck with it.
I would have taken the other route, but that appears not to be fast enough for you.
If its going to work for you, then go for it.

Why ask a question if you think you already have the answer?

You can progress onto the LLB at Birkbeck with it but if you want to go to another uni, you better check their entry requirements. Most will list one year Access courses as suitable, or International Foundation programmes or their own foundation law programmes but they don't mention this course so it seems rather a risky choice to me. You will need to research it carefully.

Because the people I was talking about, many of them are from old posts and I wanted to see if there were other โ€œnewโ€ people who got in. Plus, in the whole paragraph I wrote, I was talking more to people who did the course than people who did not.
However, thank you for the reply, just today I sent an email to all Universities I am interested in, so I hope it goes well!

Hi!I have two friends taking this course. One took it last year, and she got and average of 70% (at level 4, which is a very good result) and she was accepted at UCL! She is actually less happy at UCL then when she was at Birkbeck...My other friend is taking the programme now, and he is really happy. He already got an offer from Birmingham Uni for the LLB. He also told me that a fellow student has been accepted to one of the Colleges at Cambridge and he was told that Oxford University asks students who do not have A levels to take the Birkbeck Certificate programme first.So I would consider taking the Certificate because it gives you lots of options. Birkbeck is also a well known university, you should not underestimate it! It really depends which sort of experience you want. Take care

Hey, thanks for the replies, you made me more enthusiast than before about taking this course. Quick question, are your friends mature students?
