    Hi everyone,

    I'm going to be choosing my AS levels in a couple of weeks, I've already decided on History and English Literature, as I want to pursue a career in law.

    The problem is i can't decide between Theology and ethics, Politics, Computing or chemistry. Any help on which of these are most valued, best for law?


    They are all good choices, but maybe choosing a non-essay based subject,such as Chemistry would make your application to Law stand out.It will also be a much needed break from the essay subjects-I am doing English Literature,but I find that Biology and Chemistry keep me interested in learning because they are so different from English.Chemistry is also seen as a valuable subject in the legal proffession, so that may also help your application.At the end of the day though, it is what you feel you will enjoy the most, and therefore achieve the best grade possible!
