Scot’s law degree hoping to work in England

Hello, I’m about to start a Scot’s law degree (either this year or might defer) at the University of Edinburgh. However my goal is to practice law in England. Can anyone please provide information on how practicing law in England with a Scot’s law degree works? Thank you

I was at a UCAS fair the other week and the Edinburgh rep said that you would have to take an extra exam at the end of degree. This would mean that you would have to do a bit of extra reading in the last year but you don't have to do any additional courses or an extra year or anything. This would make you qualified in both English (and Welsh as it's the same) and Scottish law.
Hope this helps!
