I have dreams to get into law at ucl. I startedd off with a levels but left due to personal issues. Now Im doing a btec. I can’t get into a good uni for law and this is needed if you want to do well. I want to go into human rights law but my dreams feel crushed now someone help and give advice because I’m honestly just anxious everyday and feel disappointed in myself as I always set myself high standards academically and love to do well/ passionate about law. Just wish I finished my a levels but it is what it is and now I dunno what to do

Why not just do your a levels to get the grades? You could sit them at a college or FE centre nearby you.

Because then I would have to start the whole 2 years again and I just can’t do that again. If I do it by myself /self teach it will be too hard and cost me money that I just don’t have. Sad isn’t it

Why don’t you just take 2 years to do the course? 2 years in the grand scheme of things is nothing. Your career will be for the rest of your life. In my opinion the solution is obvious

Because ucl doesn’t accept student who repeated a year. Also it’s very hard to get into a good college right now because Were already in October. And I know that starting a levels again might be a good choice, but I just can’t bring myself to start again at the bottom, it’s just too much and I would have wasted 2 years.

UCL are more cautious about resits than restarts, and besides, UCL is not the only good university.
When you want things in life, you have to be proactive in trying to get them. It sounds harsh but I promise that you stand to gain nothing from not doing something that is essential to getting what you want and then wallowing in what could have been. Not being bothered to spend 2 years (in practice, more like one and a bit) on something that means everything to you, and instead opting to do something you don’t like and feeling sorry for yourself gets you nowhere. That is the hard truth.
To tell you about myself, I had serious extenuating circumstances in year 12 which hugely impacted my studies. Instead of giving up, I did my best to get back on track and I’m now going through the application process for top tier law universities (Cambridge, LSE, UCL, Durham, Exeter), some of whom have already given me offers and I am anticipating offers from the rest in the coming months. It’s not impossible.

I'm not sure about your age, but given you specifically mentioned UCL, the Access to HE Dip. is your best route.
