Access to law?

Question:Has anyone taken a access course in law. I start this course in September and am hoping to start a degree next year. Any advice would be much appreciated as i'm not entirely sure what to expect. Will this course be enough to get me into university next year.

Answers:
I did a part time access course at Handsworth College (Birmingham) over a two year period, and went to Uni in London. It was a really good grounding for me as I had been out of education for 10 years previous to that(left school with no qualifications).It stood me in good stead, and I found it really enjoyable. I graduated with a 2:1 and now work in the city as a solicitor

Good luck
These courses commenced because students / readers at uni were so accustomed to giving stick answers to questions, and not submitting essays of limited wordage, eg: 1600 words.
Uni's now prefer those without A - level Law, because they get into bad habits, and cannot think, nor read actual legal papers but come to rely on books.
When doing 4 modules per semester and having to submit 8 essays in 6 weeks, non-access students cannot meet the obligation, and end up with automatic d5 - a bare pass.
The hardest year at uni is year 1, as lecturers do not want to know you. I'd recommend uni for one year, but it drives you nuts! Access courses usually give you 2 main subjects alongside IT and Communications, and take you from level 1 through to level 3 - an A-level! You will age 10 years after this course.
Good luck
