    I wanted to know the subject requirements to study Law at Oxford/Cambridge or any other good uni? On the website, it says that there are no specific subject requirement in IB.
    Many people have told me that essay based subjects are ideal - and wanted to know whether HL Geography or HL Economics count as 'essay-based' subjects? What are other 'essay-based' subjects in IB?
    Also, what other IB options would give me a better chance of being able to study a Law course at a top uni in both SL and HL?
    I'm currently planning to take: HL Maths, HL Chemistry, HL Geography, HL Economics, SL English LangLit and SL French.
    Thanks! Please let me know!

    Your subjects are fine. English is an essay writing subject (although Literature more so than Language). Some people study Law with no essay subjects, although this is definitely rarer.

    Thanks! Do you think I should change to SL English Lit rather than SL English LangLit? Or is HL English Lit ideal?
