    Im currently going into A2 to study - sociology, politics and english lit. I want to study law but my friends have demotivated me as they have said it's a boring course and it's also really competitive etc etc. I want to work with humanitarian organisations such as the UN when im older, so if anyone can help me out on what I can study at uni to help me achieve that would be appreciated. P.S I really really enjoy sociology but i don't know about studying that at uni as im not sure what careers i could go into with that. Thanks!

    If you're passionate about law then study law. It's all up to you, not your friends. That being said make sure you consider all your options and do some research, you've got a few months before you need to put forward your UCAS application so make it count! I studied Sociology at A level as well and enjoyed it a lot but I didn't follow it forward because of the same worries you have about it. Just keep researching It's your decision remember.

    Law can be an incredibly rewarding degree, but yeah, I would recommend doing a week's worth of 1st Year Law degree reading if you can and see if that is something you can see yourself enjoying/coping with for three years.
