    I really want to do law at university but I'm scared I wont get in. My A-level courses are government and politics, english and history. What other good degrees could I do in case I don't get into law? Many thanks

    just go through clearing for law if you don't get in for your first choices. bear in mind that many of the training contracts require a minimum amount of ucas points.

    Go into clearing. If you want to get into a good uni tho I would just reapply the next year and redo some units. I don't really know any alternatives x

    Thanks guys! I know this sounds idiotic and stupid but what exactly is clearing? Is it when uni's give out free spaces?

    You can become a lawyer with pretty much any degree. Pick something you'll enjoy and will be good at.
