Hello everyone! It feels amazing to say that I'm finally applying to university after the long wait!

Course: Law
Possible universities: Durham, Exeter, really not sure on any other ones as of yet
Predicted grades: A (already have 2 A levels at A*, and will be fast-tracking another A level, for which they will not provide me with a predicted grade, hence only 1 predicted grade)
GCSE grades: not the best in the world :redface:
Extra curriculars: I'm not currently participating in any, but during my previous years at college, I participated in the pathways to law programme, one of the SMP's law programmes, amongst other, smaller law programmes. Aside from that, that's about it!

I'm looking forward to following everyone's journeys this academic year :smile:
I am applying to Cardiff Met, Human Nutrition & Dietetics. I start my Access to Biosciences course in Sept. I have drafted my personal statement already, just waiting for the college to oversee it before I start the actual application. I'm a mature student at almost 38! Really looking forward to this next stage.
