    So, I have always wanted to be a lawyer. But, I have 5 GCSE's. I got 4 c's in English language, Maths, Sociology English literature. I got a B in RE. However, I am retaking English language to get a B. As well as, Maths GCSE, Additional GCSE & Psychology GCSE. I got a D in Maths GCSE and Additional GCSE. However, I am hoping to get 4 b's.

    I think thats enough as long as you have the required subjects for a levels.The subject you should take is english and history
    And other non compulsory subjects

    To be honest, 4Bs and 4Cs at GCSE would probably be enough to get you into somewhere like UEA to read law if you had decent A level grades at AAB. If you did go to somewhere with a similar reputation to UEA you would be in a decent position to apply to firms. However, it's unlikely you would make it to top city firms.
