I want to study law and criminology at university however I’m only predicted BBB because I was shoved into subjects I wasn’t fond off.

Is it worth it ? Will I get into a law course with these grades ? If so where would take me that’s good. ?

I would love to study law and criminology however if my grades mean that I won’t get a good job afterwards I’d be better going into something else.

Hiya, might I suggest you take a look here? I personally can't answer your queries but maybe someone there can with regards to the law bit
Although, if in doubt, I'd suggest looking at universities you're interested in and their grade requirements.

Hey! Someone I know got BBB and they did Psychology, English and Politics for A level and they now study law at University of East Anglia (UEA) so there are 100% options for you! Don’t worry

What exactly do you want to do jobs wise after? Because speaking honestly while you may be able to get into academia relatively easily with BBB at A Level provided you do well when you're at uni, it will be incredibly hard for you to become a solicitor or barrister. Most solicitor firms have cut offs of AAB for a levels unless you have persuasive mitigating circumstances. I would absolutely not recommend you aim for becoming a barrister - if this is your dream then I'm sure there are ways to get there but - the bar is elitist and extremely competitive. Criminology may be good if you want to work for something like the police or go into academic criminology/sociology but it won't help your chances in terms of getting a job even if you go for CPS.
I hope this advice helps, it feels *****y to write this but I would much rather say something truthful. It's a bad time to study law at the moment especially with the impacts coronavirus has had

Hey Lyn_03,

If the course page intrigues you, you should come to our next virtual open day where you can watch a new course talk from the course leader and you'll have the opportunity to chat live with academics, current students and other university services such as student support and accommodation. Our next open days are on Saturday 21st November 12-3pm and Wednesday 9th December 5-7pm & you can sign up here.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.
