What will I study?
The titanic struggle between good and evil comes alive on the page when studying law. Well, sort of. Every aspect of our lives is governed by the government and the system of laws which exist and BTEC law will help you to understand this. If you enjoy legal programmes, police programmes or politics then this course will help you develop and understand.
What do students do afterwards?
BTEC law students have acquired apprenticeships with local law firms, gone on to study law in many universities around the country, or used the qualification to access courses such as physiotherapy, English, sport, primary teaching… The possibilities are endless.
How will I be assessed?
By both internal and external assessment. One exam in Year 12 and another in Year 13. The internal assessments are assignments looking at pre-released material.
What can I do to prepare?
Talk to other students who are already doing the course and ask them what they have done or wish they had done. Come and talk to one of the teachers who will be happy to discuss the content and style of learning in more depth. Watch some cracking TV programmes like ‘How to get away with Murder’, ‘Suits’ or ‘The Night of’!
