Different unis put more weight to the multiple choice(Oxford) other unis look more closely at the essay(UCL). I did not write enough in my essay at all and it was awful lol- I did get an interview at Oxford but rejected from ucl and now I’m at kings. I imagine if they mark it like university essays they’ll do some kind of penalties because you went over or more likely the rest of the essay will be cut off at the 750 mark- which would only be like your last couple sentences tbf. I’m just speculating really but what’s done is done and you wrote a lot more than I did I really wouldn’t worry about it.

I’m also so unsure about if I even really want to do law. Everyone says they see me in that field but to be honest, I don’t enjoy or have a passion for anything that I would want to do in any job so I’m so lost. If I do then I would want to be a corporate lawyer but I’m really lost. I’m not sure if it’s the best to take a gap year to find experience in the law field or if it is a waste of time

Definitely finding what you enjoy is most important. It’s a pretty challenging degree so you’ll probably need to find it interesting to succeed in it and want to put the time in. I’m still abit confused as it what I want (I don’t think anyone actually knows their life plan) but I like it so far. I did take a gap and I did some work experience in the legal field and that definitely helped me. Degrees are also a lot of money so it’s kinda a big commitment if you’re unsure. Nothing wrong with taking some time to explore different options! Success is totally subjective it’s all about what’s important to you and what makes you happy!

Are you still in uni? And what kind of experience did you do or get? And do you have any tips in trying to get experience? I want a gap year to maybe explore my options and get experience but I don’t want to waste my time when some people say I could be doing it now nothing
