    I really want to study a Law degree at Oxbridge after my A Levels and am wondering if where I go (Sixth form at a Grammar school or a College) will affect my chances of getting in? Also, which A level combination would be best:

    Option 1 (Grammar School 6th Form):

    Option 2 (College):
    Spanish if possible, if not psychology

    to be honest it doesn't matter whether you go to a sixth form or college, if the teaching standards are the same. What's really important is self-motivation. Also, steer clear of law a-level. the first combination seems the best one, though ideally you could substitute politics for history, it's very well regarded for law.

    Where you go isn't as important as how well you do! The first set of options sound better than the other, simply because Law A-level is seen as slightly more soft by Oxbridge. But they're both good subject combinations - universities really love languages so the Spanish is a good idea.

    I would say try and go somewhere where you feel that the environment will encourage you to think a lot and maybe give you the chance to have good discussions in class.
