    I've heard that you shouldn't do Economics AND a Business course, as they sort of cancel each other out, my college even banned it

    It doesn't? :lolwut: it's kind of unusual but I don't think you should do general studies it's not worth the paper it's written on. But do an awful lot of reading on law, the unis will want to know the reason why you're interested in it.



    How so? my friends do it and looking at the syllabus, I cannot think of a better way of preparing and it is something to talk about in the application.

    Tbh the only A levels not worth doing is Genral studies/Critical thinking
    Do you remember at the start of GCSE when your science teacher told you

    "Right, everything we've taught you so far is a lie, forget it all"

    and then again at the start of AS...


    "Right, everything we've taught you so far is a lie, forget it all"

    No?

    Well we were always told that as you move up a level, the stuff you've already learned is dumbed down version of what you're about to learn, and not all of it is correct. It's the same with law. Universities have to un-teach AS/A2 law. It's not the same as university law.

    I think that a mixture of Business studies and Economics is a bad idea as they both have related content so Maths would be a better choice, Interestingly Warwick uni want you to study one maths/science subject for their Management degree.
    Some management courses are statistics-heavy.

    If you choose Management as a secondary/tertiary subject at Lancaster, they ask for maths too

    Law's not a good A Level. Even if one is planning to do it at university.

    Incorrect. Try again please.

    if you don't want to do History, do english lit.

    They are both held at pretty much the same level in terms of respect and general university awe, but lit. is easier

    Thanks for your advice but how would Physics/Geography have any relevance if I wanted to a Business/Law degree. Sorry if this sound critical but I'm just trying to see the point?
    It's not all about what is included in degree level. They don't necessarily have to be the same. It's more about academic content and how hard/respectable the a-level is. The more traditional academic subjects like history/english lit/maths etc are preferred by top universities for law especially. I want to do law, and while I am pretty clever, I didn't take traditional subjects at all, politics is the only kind of traditional subject I took and that's questionable.

    Unfortunately, the route into law involves studying a subject or two that isn't necessarily your favourite but will display how intelligent you are. After all law is a feckin hard degree. This is due to the difficulty of law degrees and the popularity. (They would rather have someone who does english lit/maths/history and physics than someone who took dance/media studies and general studies) without any offence to those a-levels :L

    What is the workload like? I'm really worried about it?! xx
    well i get dozens of note making as homework not to forget the back breaking note taking we do in class + the extra revision at home since the content size is rather large so we dont have enough time to finish off everything in lessons. If you want them A/B grades i suggest you start revising asap from the very start dont leave it till the last minute like me. My xmas holz is literally ruined due to hisory prep 4 jan exam..im rushing through the spec ..god damn.

    a science A'level has much more credit compared to something like RS or management regardless of whatever course you're applying for. The same applies for geography, though it doesnt have as high credit as physics but i'd say its a better choice than RS.
