    So i'm starting sixth form at a new school and they would only allow me to take 3 A levels which are english lit, business and history. i want to study law in uni so would that be ok and is three alevels normal for year 12???

    4 is usual for year 12, most people then drop to three in year13.
    I have a friend who has got a place in Cambridge for law with similar ALevels, so don't worry too much.

    They're good A-levels as precursors to law, although I cannot for the life of me understand why your sixth-form would only let you take three. It should be okay, but even my school - which was objectively **** - let us take four.

    this sixth form follows something called aps (average point score) where my gcses got a point of 49. However, i need 46 or more points to do 4 AS. i dont know it i should contact the school to tell them if they have made a mistake or wait until school starts to make a move
