    Hey what do you guys think of these a levels for law at Cambridge? Should I change any? They're : - Eng lit, history, maths, and religious studies

    Ty!!
    I would say definitely stick with Eng lit, history and maths. I'm not really sure if RS is respected or not at A level so I can't really comment on that. Many people say don't take Law if you want to do Law so I wouldn't worry about that

    Why not take Law if you want to do...Law? That's like saying don't take Maths if you want to do Maths at uni.

    No but I think RS is a good substitute? I mean half of it is ethics .. But what about my other three subjects?
    I don't know much about RS, but if you want to be competitive for Law at Cambridge, definitely do four A-levels.

    I'm not exactly sure but I've heard it being said many times (and not just on here). It might be similar to, for example, the electronic configuration of an atom in chemistry is different at A level from GCSE. It doesn't matter anyway seeing as it isn't an option where he is going

    well maths is offered by the vast majority (if not all) sixth forms whereas law is much more niche
    and there are some universities that advise against taking it, which i believe has something to do with the fact that it's taught in a simplified way so you have to relearn it properly at uni, so it's seen as better to do hard essay subjects like english lit and history (although i have seen someone get in for law with all sciences at a level)

    I've been making a big deal out of it for the last month and then A-level results day came around and made it look so insignificant haha; doubt I'll be saying that on RD though!
