I am a 1st year LLb student doing very well (so far) and I already have my mind (and heart) set on becoming a Barrister. I left school young without GCSE's (due to an illness) and didn't bother to go back and get them even though I was predicted to gain top marks across the board.
After a couple of years of "finding myself" where I kept myself busy with an array of jobs, I decided to go back to college, where I was introduced to the Access qualification.
Nearly a year on and I'm preparing a C.V for work experience and noticing that all the websites dedicated to legal career advice state that I need to put my GCSE grades and A Level grades into my C.V as these will be considered.
Obviously this leaves me a little more than unnerved! Does this mean that I'm just kidding myself attempting to become a Barrister?
Or simply that I am getting to the bar via an alternative route?
I am prepared to work hard and most deffinately prepared to work even harder to get what I want!
What should I do?
