I am a First Year student at King's College London in the UK and I have just received my module results for First Year (based on 24 hours take-home exams) and I was appalled and devastated to see that I obtained 59 in Contract Law (that is, a 2:2) which is regarded as the most important module and is very very important to law firms when they look at applications for open days/vac schemes/TCs. This is particularly upsetting for me because I was doing very well in Contract and expected a First - meanwhile average students obtained a First...
Note that I am doing a special 4 Year LLB course "Politics, Philosophy and Law" and that apart from this module, I obtained 64 in Politics, 74,5 in Philosophy and 69 in EU Law (again the 9-ish is annoying because I almost got a First...).
Thus, I was wondering what were your thoughts on my ability to still try to pursue a career
at a top firm (especially, US ones) with this grade.
Thank you in advance!
