    Thank you! And yesterday I got A*AA and got into Durham so ignore everyone telling you certain subjects are compulsory X

    I have found that with Law they are generally not as fussed as you may think about the subjects you take. I took Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Law A-levels and got accepted from everywhere I applied, including places like Durham and Nottingham, which are pretty good uni's.

    I was told that as long as you take one essay based subject, they mostly care about the grades you get not the subjects themselves. The only uni I found that stated a specific A-level for Law was Oxford who asked for English :-)

    *Out of interest where did you find that Oxford requires english? It doesn't say that anywhere on their website: https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/unde...udence?wssl=1# did you check with them?*

    History is probably a must
    Sarcasm? ( history is not a must for law)

    So I've chosen: English Literature
    I know some of you are going to say that I should swap one of these subjects for the typical history or French however I did not take history GCSE and after careful consideration I cannot see myself enjoying French so I chose geography as I needed one extra facilitating subject.

    When the time comes I hope to apply to top unis e.g. Warwick, LSE, Cambridge and Imperial so can someone be brutally honest and tell me if my a levels are good enough to do law there because if not I will just take history instead of geography.

    Absolutely fine. What are your GCSEs ? To up your chances swap anyone for history ( I'd reccomend not geography as it shows more skills, but an A* in Pol is better I'd say than an A in His)
