    I have an illness which makes me need the toilet more frequently than others and gives me severe migraines and stomach pains along with serious nausea and other things. Due to this I got through my GCSES with a lot of difficulty. I then applied for A Levels and started doing them,I did it for a year but due to my absence because of illness it was too difficult to keep up with work. I was then really worried as to what I would do with my life but then I found the option of open uni,if saw there was a bachelor of laws I could do through them and then become a solicitor from this qualification so I got a job and my plan was to work this year and pay for my open uni course and start it next year. My Bro in law came round yesterday and nd said to me that without A Levels I can't get a job as a solicitor or anything even related to a lawyer. So now I'm really worried and scared and my illness is just making things work. So my ultimate question is if I have a bachelor of laws without a levels could I get a good job, keep in mind once I complete the bachelor of laws I want to do a masters in law.
    Thank you

    He isnt entirely correct, but many of the top jobs do require you to have A levels as part of the application criteria.

    You need good grades.

    I would be looking towards resolving the health issues as they pose a real practical barrier into you ever being a lawyer. Arent you going to face the same problems about in any job as you did at school, unless you sort it out? Its possible you could get a job, but do not underestimate how competitive law is.

    You can always do your A levels as a private candidate.
