I got my first year law results from King's College London yesterday: Criminal 67%, EU 67%, Contract 66% and Public 64%. Seeing that most vacation schemes are highly competitive and have minimum requirements of a 2:1, do my results hold me back from getting accepted because I only meet the minimum criteria and don't have a 1:1?

Not in the slightest. These are better than my first-year results and I did fine with mine at US and MC firms Back yourself and go for it!

Hi Aditya

You should absolutely apply! You have met the minimum criteria so show them what else you have besides academics- have you got experience problem solving (maybe you were part of a Scouts group for example) or are you good at writing (perhaps you have written blogs or entered competitions or are you a good team player (perhaps you have had a summer job)? There are lots of skills sought after that can be demonstrated in addition to academics so show the schemes what other things you bring to them too.

Hope that helps!
