Today, I realized my true calling.. - January 26th 2012, 06:17 AM

Hello everyone.
I'm 16 years old, in grade 11.
For no reason other than to see how much I am currently educated on the general topic of law, I decided to write a practice bar examination.
I have never taken any official legal studies courses, but my ultimate goal is to eventually pursue a career as a criminal prosecutor.
I spent about 2 and a half hours writing this practice exam a few days ago, and had it sent in for marking. Just as I was preparing myself for a huge reality check, I opened my score;
I got 89%!!!
This is pretty incredible for me, I don't think I've ever been so proud or felt more accomplished in my life.
Just wanted to share my happiness!

Congratulations on your great grade! That's really impressive. I'm sure you're going to make a fantastic criminal prosecutor.

That moment when you realise your true calling is so precious. Hold onto it and keep working towards your dream. I honestly do believe in the phrase, "The sky's the limit".

So happy for you. <3

Congrats.

Out of pure curiosity, 1) did you take a Bar Exam specific to Alberta? 2) where did you find a practice Bar Exam?

Thank you everybody!

No I did not, this is what I had done...
I simply found one online, I wrote the Connecticut Practice Bar Examination July 2011. My constable at school's father worked as a defense attorney for 30 something years, and taught criminal law in the states for about 10.
My constable gave my written work to her father to 'grade', and although it wasn't a professional exchange, I feel he's had enough practice on the subject for my marks to at least give me a relative idea on my current progress. =]

Congrats!

I swear I'd probably fail the bar exam if I tried to sit it now! Haha.


Because in the end, it doesn't even matter.
