    So I want to do law at university maybe UCL or KCL and at the beginning of AS I was taking history, government and politics, psychology and sociology. After finding out the course content of history I decided to drop it and take religious studies instead. My AS grades are AAAB and I have predictions of A*A*(A*/A) Furthermore my EPQ is dedicated to law, it's titled "Should the state of Texas consider murder with the involvement of a firearm punishable by the death penalty?"
    The only problem is I do not take any facilitating subjects and I've heard that I Russell Group universities may reconsider their choice of applicant If they take "soft" subjects (more than 2) I understand law has no required subjects and that history and English literature can be taken but should I be worried?

    Check the entry requirements. They should be on the website. No one on here can tell you otherwise.

    I would imagine UCL being fussy on what you do at A level because of their prestige but am not sure to be honest. Not all of the Russell Group strictly state a need for 2 or more facilitating subjects.The only two I outright know from memory that ask for at least 2 facilitating subjects is University of Southampton and LSE. Oxbridge are likely the same. University of Manchester (where I am going for Law) welcome all subjects for example. Just best to check entry requirements page for all of the Russell Group and get in touch with UCL to check what they want. Best of luck!
