    So I have a passion to become a lawyer. I got 9 A's and 2A*'s at GCSE. I think I am targeted A's/A*in my Alevel subjects (English lit, history and economics). I assistant direct, do lots of production and project manager roles at a drama company and have a waitressing job. I would say I am very organised, headstrong and motivated. Is law a realistic option for me given this information?

    In terms of universities, I was thinking Durham, Edinburgh, Bristol I would be open to further suggestions on other choices.

    I would love some advice on law and the universities. 😊

    I'm not really sure what you're asking. If you meet the university's stated entry requirements for a Law degree then law is a realistic option. Your work experience is not really relevant, universities won't care that you're a waitress or that you're involved with a drama company. All they care about are your grades and your enthusiasm for the subject.

    don't study law

    Just get the requied A level grades and thats about it, unless theres an LNAT test. Nothing to stop you doing it.
