    What do you mean by "go to do"? You mean A-level choices? Extracurriculars? Work Experience?

    Hang on, what sort of courses are offered by your college? Law generally requires at least one essay-based subject, which is usually a humanities or social science-y subject (History, English, Politics, etc).

    Im sure a health and social vocational course will allow you to do those! Im not sure about the a level choices you can do though! good luck!

    edit: some universitys may be more favourable if you do a levels though, (sadly) just do your research and youll be ok! you have plenty of time so dont stress!

    Unfortunatly this is a little too vague. Almost any law degree is off the table if you've not studied A-Levels. You'd need to look at Crimonology and see which ones accept a Level 3 BTEC in place of A-Levels. If you know you want to become a lawyer, A-Levels are the way to go forward, then taking a Law degree (or, history/English Lit etc. Then a conversion course)

    It will limit you greatly in terms of law if you don't take A-Levels. However, still entirely possible! Do some research. Email universities, look at entry requirements. x

    Not true - many Universities will offer places on Law degree courses to students with level 3 BTecs - in fact there is an Applied Law BTec and many
    students from my college who have studied it have gone on to study law at University
