    Heyy guyss,
    So all my targets were quite high up until I moved schools. When I moved schools in Year 10, they put all my targets as 4s. Apparently, the school does this to everyone but it doesn't change even if I am higher than the targets. Now, I am in Year 11, and advice given to me was to consider doing BTEC courses in sixth form or college which is not my ambition as I would like to do A Levels to become a lawyer. Is there anyone that can help me ASAPP?? Please.

    Surely whether the school sets you a 4 target, then theres nothing to prevent you from aiming higher?

    You can get on a law course with btec, but if you dont mind exams then A levels are more widely accepted. Just make sure you get 6's at GCSE or better in Maths English and the subjects you wish to study.

    You can always move school. Talk to your parents and make sure you work hard to achieve the higher grades..
