Hi! Currently I'm doing my A Levels - Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Business. I was wondering, what's a better career to pursue out of Dentistry (and specialise in orthodontics) or Law (e.g. doing a masters to become a barrister). This may seem a childish thing to say, but I'm asking in terms of which career could earn you the most, which is easier to get a job in and rank up, and which is overall better? At the moment I don't have a particular preference, so it would be good to get some help from people on here!

Also, considering my A Levels, is there any other field you would recommend? High earning preferably .

Thanks!

Dentistry will virtually guarantee you a job, Law won't, it is very difficult to become a barrister, around 1 in 5 make it who undertake the BPTC.

In terms of money the very top barristers can earn millions, but you're talking CVs with Oxbridge top of the year, LLM from Harvard and scholarships coming out of your ears. Most barristers will earn goood money, hard to give exact amounts as it varies so much by practice and they're self employed.

Dentistry.

Anyone can study law, but not anyone can practise law. It's becoming harder and harder to get a job in the legal sector.
