    Two questions.

    1) I am interested in becoming a barrister, however apparently I was told that I have to go to one of the Russel groups in order to do so, is that true?

    2) Most Russel groups only accept A*AA- AAA. I do have a lot on my CV like a tutoring job, charity work, volunteering, extra curriculum sports etc. and I do have ADHD so if that is true then I'm was wondering if they may make an acceptation if i get lower, as i've heard they do on some circumstances? Any universities that are flexible?

    Thank you. (:

    I dont believe that is true otherwise why would non rg unis offer llb degrees. see here on becoming a barrister http://www.barcouncil.org.uk/careers...e-a-barrister/

    Having a disability means you should get reasonable adjustments but it wont make them more lenient in university applications as they d expect you to have had exam adjustments to make up for it so they aren't that flexible on that basis, i dont think extra curricular stuff massively helps with academic courses either.
    Thank you. (:
