    Oh right okay- over here you pick 4 subjects at sixth form and I was thinking to pick biology psychology, English lit& probably maths but I don't really like maths and I'm not good at it so I don't know what to pick as my fourth option

    Not to be a prat, but if you want to do something that is heavily qualitative then quantitative Highers and A-Levels might not help you out when it comes to having to actually study law.

    Nonetheless, good luck. Where else have you applied to mbs?

    Hi Doc. I was actually just giving advice to Iqra above. I've been practising as a Specialist Immigration and Family Law Paralegal for 3 years with my law firm.

    Thank you for the advice. I had never known there was such an option to train through the firm. After speaking with the Law Society I have registered on the course

    The only downside with that is that you won't qualify to become a member of the faculty of advocates if you should wish to become one (you need an LLB for that). So weigh up your options and good luck!

    Yeah. You would have to sit their exams which don't have any course material or study guides and that would have to be done on top of your exams to become a solicitor.
