I pick my options next year and I really have no clue what I want to do
I’d love to be a lawyer but the workload seems massive and tbh I dont think I would pass the course Is there maybe a similar job?
I also find detective work fascinating and desirable.
Here’s the subjects i’m good at: PSRE, Maths, geography, history, PE, DT and for the others i’m average in the class.
so any jobs related to those subjects would be appreciated.

I don’t really know about jobs but when I picked my options I just picked what I find fun rather than what I need to do for a job, and so far I’m on track for top grades in them

No job really requires any particular GCSE options, but some do require particular grades in the subjects you take so it's usually best to just take what you are best at/enjoy as that tends to produce the best results. Of course, if you know a particular A level or equivalent you want to study then it's good to look at which subjects might be required for you to take before that but if you don't know, that's okay too
As for jobs, if we have you a list and you picked one then chances are you wouldn't end up doing it because even those that do know what they want to do often change their mind before they end up in a job! But if you like law and detective work perhaps looking into something like policing may be something that would interest you?

With regards to the police detective route, you can now do direct-entry detective which means your probation period is as a detective and not a uniformed officer like it previously was. Basically means you start as a DC rather than PC - both ranks are equal in terms of pay and responsibilities.

Entry routes into policing are a complete maze now. You can apply for in-force DE Detective, in-force DE Detective DHEP (Degree-Holder Entry Programme) or the Police Now DE Detective (DHEP).

Conversely you can apply for the PCDA (degree apprenticeship) or DHEP to be a normal uniformed officer, and then specialise as a detective after your uniformed probation.

That's probably completely confused you, but if you are interested in policing then definitely do your research. Starting pay is very low outside of London (~£24,000) and you'll likely work long hours on a shift pattern.
