Hi all! This is probably a waste of time because I wouldn't get in but I am currently doing the first year of my LLB with the open university, and was looking at using the credits to apply to transfer to first year at my local university for this September. I have very little chance of getting in, as I never did my A levels, and while I'm expecting to pass, I haven't done particularly well in my first year because of mental health issues at the end of last year. I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on how to boost my chances a little bit. If I got good grades in the final assessments of my modules, could I emphasise them on my application, and would it help? Or is there a chance that if I write a kick ass personal statement, they might overlook my lack of credentials? I know I'm grasping at straws here but it's worth a shot at least.

have you contacted the uni that you want to transfer too and asked them what their requirments are?

Discuss your application with them to see what your chances are

If you never took A levels and haven't done particularly well on the first year of your degree, it may be that an Access to Higher Education course would be a good idea, you can do those at local colleges. Also consider whether you would be better off switching to a different subject if you haven't been enjoying Law.

I have been enjoying law, and I want to continue with it, so if I don't get into the university this year I'll just continue with my OU degree, since it's a really good course. I just fancied potentially trying out a year in a normal uni.
