Preparing for Uni After Receiving Your A-Level Results

A student celebrates his A-level results

You might be wondering how you can start preparing for uni after receiving your A-Level results.

If you are thinking about being a lawyer, getting ahead is always the right attitude, and there are a few little tips in this article which might help.

There is no “start on your reading list” recommendation here. Reading is an honourable and great thing to do.

But legal essays don’t need to be the focus of your last couple of weeks before you leave home if you don’t want them to – that’s what the next few years are for.

So what are my recommendations? Below I have come up with the five things to do with your summer if you have got the A-level results you wanted.

If you have got some time (and the inclination), I would therefore really recommend trying to do a piece of writing if you can.

It doesn’t have to be very long, it certainly doesn’t have to be serious or related to law, but just any little exercise to get your brain back into writing gear is super helpful and you can make it fun too.
