Hey there,

Interesting.

I feel you are saying that in your Aptitude tests, Law was not suggested.

Good that you have got yourself tested and know where you lack now.
Most of the time, we are unaware of our weaknesses and ultimately land up in a worng profession, regerting later on.

Since you know yur report and are aware of your weaknesses, my suggestion would be to work on the traits required to be a lawyer and no one can then defeat you in your profession.

Few traits required to be a Lawyer includes:
Command over language: One needs an extremely good command over their language. Whether it is english, hindi or Marathi, knowing to express oneself is very important in this profession
Reasoning Capacity: Very important trait one needs to be a lawyer is his reasoning capacity. Your client may speak in layman terms, but you need to derive the meaning and then help your client
Predicting: One must have the ability to forsee the future. You must be able to inform your clients where exactly the verdict would be, after you have been able to derive meaning from the case.
Witty: You need to add humor in your case. Hence command over language is very important
Debating: You must learn the Art of debating. Whether the point is right or wrong, you need to learn to stick to your point and carry on with it. Not necessarily argumentative, but definitely being able to put across your point is important.
Research and reading: A minute detailing is important. Hence you need to be a keen reader and at the same time focus on researching the topic is necessary.

Now it is upto you to understand which of the above traits you possess and which you need to work on.

Wish you good luck............

Dear Aspirant,

Very happy to know that you opted to take a scientific method to assess your potential and interests.

I feel, that if the Report did not suggest you Law as a career option, then I would suggest you not to take the risk, since I am confident that the report (if you have answered unbiased and without any prejudice or misconceptions) must be right.

Best wishes!
