    I'll keep it as short as I can!

    GCSEs: 13, Mostly Cs and Bs
    A Levels: CDEU (major fail, won't go into why)
    Access Course: Pass (Allied Healthcare)
    1 year at an average University (BSs, withdrew)
    Access Course: All Distinctions in Humanities (English,History,Politics)

    My question is, is it worth applying for Law knowing how competitive it is?
    Most of my life I thought I will go into Healthcare but my experiences showed that I have more ability in Humanities.

    The university I'm looking to apply is Exeter and I meet their entry requirements (using the Access Course) and I will just mention I'm not looking to work at any major law firms- just want to live comfortably.

    I'd think youd be ok as long as tou got a decent degree.

    Theres a risk because of the competition, but you have to back yourself.
    Impressed they let you do two access courses and A levels.

    There are a wide range of solicitors and if you are good enough you can make a decent living..

    Thank you!

    The plan is to get a First hopefully! I am planning to, at some point, re-take those A Levels just to redeem myself as I know I'm capable.

    I took A Levels after I left school but I struggled a lot at college with a lot of issues and ended up solely relying on the fact that I'll just do access and apply for a Healthcare course, it turned out it wasn't for me. My tutor argued that I can do access again as long as I take different subjects which ended up working out a lot better for me

    Bit ambitious but I'm also doing the LNAT and seeing if I can apply somewhere higher than Exeter
