    The reason I don't want to become a lawyer is because I'm not good at public speaking- but I know I want to do something law related in the future and it's the only degree that appeals to me. I know the grade requirements are high so I'll probably get in a worse uni than if I chose a different uni but I'd rather do something I enjoy than go to a high prestige university. I do law at a level and since I start it was the only subject I consistently got A's in

    You don't have to do public speaking if you're a solicitor. Barristers do the talking part, and solicitor-advocates also but you don't have to do that if you're a solicitor.

    Also I wouldn't go by your law A level, one of my friends got an A* in law A level then he failed our first year and had to resit. If you like law though that's great, it's quite refreshing to see someone saying they want to study it because they're genuinely interested and not just because they want to earn mega bucks as a commercial solicitor. Anyways I would suggest doing some research into what solicitors do because it's not public speaking, isn't part of your A level about the difference between solicitors and barristers etc?
