Hello, I'm 18 years old and have recently received my a level results which were a bit of a disaster. Although I passed all three (literature, english language, photography). I didn't apply to universities last year as my college didn't allow me. I would quite like to pursue a career in law or achieve a degree in this subject and I was wondering if there is any possibility a university would accept me as a student. I would also appreciate if anyone knows of anything I can do to 'bulk up' my application. I'm an avid reader and quite practical so I feel I could more than carry the subject matter, I just need a way to prove it. I would also appreciate any recommendations of universities which prioritise mental health as this was a large reasoning for my poor academic past. Many thanks x

CCD which really hurts to admit. I feel I would have done much better if I had sat the actual exams but refrained from resits as I wasn't in a great place mentally.

I can't work out what the grades needed for this would be, but I would wonder whether a good match for you would be Law with a Foundation Year. Note what it says on eligibility.

Thank you, I'll definitely look into foundation year courses. I just hope that my current grades will be enough

Would you have a preference for a University in a particular part of the country?

my instinct was to say that there will always be a low ranked, financially troubled institution that will be willing to take you on simply by virtue of having sat A-levels at all. most unis are desperate for students, especially in this climate

if you want to go to a semi-decent uni, you will have to do a foundation year or an access to he diploma. details can be found online. just keep in mind that you will have to put down the CCD and that it will probably restrict the kind of legal employers you will be able to apply to in the future.
