Hey Guys,

I'm pretty sure I want to do either Law, Politics or English at University.

I am interested in either going to Kings, RHUL or UCL.

I've chosen the following subject to study at A-level and I plan on getting A's throughout, fingers crosed

English Lit
Government & Politics
Economics
Sociology (Probably dropped after AS)

I'm pretty happy with these subjects and I think I can do well at all of them.

Good choices or not? If not then what should I possibly change?

History would be useful, I'd swap it for Sociology.

A language, perhaps? History would be useful.

I'd swap sociology for history, then you've got a pretty awesome set of A-levels for any of those degrees.

Everything's good for law, as long as they're respected subjects which yours all are.

History is a wayyy stronger subject for A level than sociology.
Check individual unis websites for their preferred subjects and check coursefinder.co.uk

I'm thinking of studying law at A-level. I have chosen 4 subjects I like and think might be useful for the course:

History, Geography, Economics and Philosophy and Ethics.

Do people think these subjects would suit the course and if not what subject/s would be better?

you mean law at uni, not a level?
you could consider doing a language or english lit instead of economics (it's not a traditional a level, but useful anyway if you're interested in it)
in the end just do what you'll enjoy

I'm applying for Politics in uni and I take English Literature, Government & Politics, Law and Psychology. (:

In the end though, just take whatever you're interested in, as long as they're not horrendous like Photography or Film Studies.

Hope this helps!

Yes I would say those are good options
I personally did English Lit (at AS level) and I enjoyed it. However, I will say that it requires a lot of work to get an A in and will be much better to condone if you actually genuinely like English.
Same for History (from what I gathered from my best friend)

Yes I know English lit is challenging but I'm a hard worker and I want to do it. But for now focus on my GCSE got mock tests in November wish me luck. Does anyone now any good websites for maths?
