So i started the LPC in 2022 (self funded).

My whole year has been miserable for personal reasons (poor physical health, mental health, parents’ seperation, not being able to attend 70% of my SGSs). So i did the exams for my electives and a few core modules and for the first time in my life. I have failed. I have failed 3 whole exams, which is a lot to come to terms with.

So because the resits are capped, I basically know that my overall percentage is definitely only going to be in the 50s% range. So a pathetic just pass.

TC are already so competitive and I’m no extraordinary genius with irresistible charm and spectacular achievements otherwise. It also doesn’t help that I’m an international student and would require a visa sponsorship.

Do I honestly have a chance of ever getting a TC ? Cause…. I no longer feel like i stand a chance at all.
