I've always wanted to be a barrister but I don't think I'll be able to achieve the grades to study law at any universities in Scotland, plus the job prospects after completing the degree are highly competitive. I got a B at higher business management last year and I'm sitting higher English geography biology and chemistry this year, biology is a crash higher and is find chemsitry difficult so I doubt I can get As in them, and most law schools id consider applying for ask for a minimum of AAAB by end of S5. My fall back option if I don't get the grades is to either study Geography and become a geography teacher or possibly study a degree in English Literature and then study Law afterwards. Does anyone have any ideas on what jobs I could get with a law degree that wouldn't be a solicitor or barrister, or would it be worthwhile for me to just become a geography teacher straight away and scrap law?

Because a Law degree is so highly regarded as a degree requiring determination, communication, leadership capabilities, research capabilities and a strong academic ability it can be used to go anywhere! Retail, marketing, law, management, HR - anything you find interesting really, just not something that requires a specific degree down that course like medicine :P
