So I've got 8A*s, 3As at GCSE, 3As and a B at AS-level, (the B was in music, and I've dropped it), and I'm predicted 2A*s and an A for A2.
I've applied to do a Law degree because I wasn't really sure what to do. I considered Philosophy for a while but decided against it because of the restricted fields when I finish. But I have no work experience, have been told my PS doesn't sound really enthusiastic, and although I've got a good profile, and an excellent reference, I'm worried I won't get any offers because I've applied to Unis too high up!
So the question is, do I carry on and hope I get the offers (and then the grades) to do Law, a subject I'm not 100% sure about, for a 4-year degree, paying fees and living costs and stuff.
Or do I wait, resit 6th form (at my current, or a different, school) doing different subjects that lead to a clear career path, and do a degree that I will definitely enjoy, and will lead to a decent job? But pay more for tuition.
Are there any costs to resitting 6th form after I've already got A-levels, especially if they're good results? As I may move to live with my boyfriend, how easily would 2 of us be able to cover living costs whilst I am in full-time education and he at University? Does anyone have personal experience of this situation?
My family think I will enjoy Law, I'm not sure - background reading is dull and makes little sense - but my friend's A-level Law textbook is fascinating.
Any advice is welcome.
