Realistic shot with a 2:2


CeeKay

I graduated from University of London with a 2:2 degree. I pursued my LLB while pursuing another Business degree for which also I got a 2:2. Looking back and if I'm to do all over again I might just do my LLB and probably aim for a 2:1 or higher, I want to look past the regret and apply for my LLM to a good school.

Is it not possible for me to apply for a good school in the UK?.

I want to try Queen Mary, Warwick, Edinburgh, UCL, Durham all for Commercial Law. Failing which I have university of Westminster and Kent in mind.

Commercial law has been a passion of mine and when it comes to practicing it I perform good, however I do not have the same on paper. I passed the subject of commercial law barely due to conflicting exam time tables. Should I maybe move my area of specialization to Corporate or Company law which is also an area I'm interested in and have good grades in.

I would be grateful to hear any advice or any tips or even a reality check. Other recommendations are also welcome! I am an international student so the information I have is limited, so would very much appreciate your genuine comments.

I've done a significant number of extra curriculars while in law school and have work experience pre and post LLB. Would any of this tip the scale in my favour?

I'd say it would be unrealistic for UCL; my offer was a 2:1 with a 65% average in the final year, which is pretty much the standard offer.
