    Of course you can change your education/career path at any point but I would advise speaking to your Uni advisor to talk about next steps instead of acting too hastily and dropping out immediately

    Over 50% of lawyers qualify with a non law degree.

    The issues are as follows if you choose to leave:

    1. You will need to check how much of this years fees you are responsible for. Leaving sooner rather than later to minimise costs if you insist you must do a law degree.
    2. Getting on a decent law course is competitive, so you will need to be sure you have the ability and determination.
    3. You will now have an extra year to civer, so etting a job and saving money wouldnt be a bad thing.
    4. During your law degree, then you can get a firm to sponsor you for the LPC (1 year) and also give you a training contract (2 years). This can save you tens of thousands of £'s.
    5. It is very competitive, so if you dont get picked, then you could find you get no TC and pay for your own fees.

    Before you make another mistake, be sure a law degree is what you want to do.

    you get a full degrees funding plus a 'gift year' so if you drop out now and this is your first course you will still receive full funding for another course, although you will obviously have more debt at the end of it as they've lent you money for an extra year

    you should check out whether you can resit your A levels, you might have to pay to do this
