    Which would you enjoy more?

    It'd be easier to get into a good Uni to study politics, and you can still do law afterwards if you wanted, but you'd get there quicker doing law.

    Probably law if you can do it at a good Uni. Some Unis you can do a joint honours in them both.

    Aberdeen is good I think, perhaps not as well known as some of the other scottish unis, but certainly respectable- I would have applied there myself if it wasn't for the distance.

    This might be useful

    Not completely true. Then again would you rather be a law lord or in the Cabinet? Top judge in the country or prime minister?

    i dont think i need access, i have 2 alevels already in chem and physics-, (and a third in law)- depsite being 2 E'S (for excellent?????); was a young immature 18 yr old wasted in my exams, thought i was keith richards, nothing to be proud of.

    if i pass gamsat im not gonna tell interviewers that though, despite it being the truth!

    in my life now i gotta do good for the sake of the world and my super human powers!

    just figured i wud need to learn the work from all my old text books...?
    does that sound a bit ill fated to you? or anyone?
