I explained that I have had certain subjects have wanted to focus on and hard the resources now to do so.I wanted an international education so I could have multi-jurisdication exposure. I explained the exam pitfall i had and how I overcame it with practice and guidance from a particular professor. They had concern for my 1st year contract grade, and pointed out that they would not have selected me for an interview in their usual trainee recruitment process because of their screening system-so i do think that if you don't have high 2:1s/1sts in your LL.B. for certain courses you have to be prepared that this is a huge factor for them.
