    History and Politics.

    I'd like to do two things. First, I would like to spend a few years (5-10) working for a human rights charity. When I say 'human rights', I mean it broadly, i.e. anything from a charity such as Amnesty which involves itself in human rights generally, to a charity like Mind or Age Concern, where it is narrower, but I feel equally important. Within that charity, I would like to work on the political side, helping to lobby ministers etc.

    Then I would like to be a tertiary educator i.e. an A-Level (or equivalent) teacher in History and Politics.

    im applying

    Cardiff- English literature
    Leeds- English Literature
    Sheffield- English Literature

    Backups:
    Nottingham Trent- English/Film & TV
    Portsmouth- English/Film studies

    am hoping to go to one of the first three though.
    got 4a*'s 5a's 1b at GCSE
    AABB at AS
    predicted AAA for A2

    so worried that i will not get accepted to any of my preferred three though, because i got a b in english at AS- was only about 3 marks off the A though, and im confident i can get the A this year- do you think i may be rejected by them?

    Oh good! Haven't seen anyone else applying for those course on here yet! But both of those are more than likely my one and two choices.

    Yh I received the acknowledgement then I got an offer 24 hours after, was quite surprised.

    Hopefully i'll get an offer similar to that as that is quite easy to get lol. Canterbury was my first choice, but i wouldn't mind either that or Bucks, also i applied at Kent for criminology and Essex, and then i applied at Kingston for Criminal Justice studies. So their all the same sort of thing.

    If i go to Bucks, or Canterbury the Police Studies course, then i will defiantly go for the interview, which was the main reasons those courses caught my eye. Though, the Crime and Policing course at Canterbury, and Bucks are my top 2 if i get offers.

    They are my top 2 as well. As we are doing these courses will they give priority to applicants doing these degrees? Or do we go through the same selection as average joe from the street?

    I think to my knowledge if we want it, we are garunteed an interview with the area police, but the rest is the same to the general public.
