    Hi, i'm looking into a career in either medicine or law. (not sure atm)

    how do these a-levels look?

    Chemistry
    Biology
    History
    English Literature

    and will these a-levels be eligible for either of the courses i'm interested in?

    how is the total workload of these subjects altogether? (planning on taking them all to A2)

    thankyou ! :p:

    Medicine and law are very different careers. For medicine you'd be better off doing maths rather than history/english and for law you be better of doing a language or maths rather than biology/chemistry.

    yeah, but the only problem is that i'm in two different minds atm, but will my chances hinder if i do go on to do these subjects and apply for one or the other? =S (even if i get straight A's in them).

    thanks

    I dont think Law has any specific subject requirements - a couple of people from our school applied with all sciences and got in...

    Youd be better off tailoring them towards medicine, as you can still do law with a medic combination, so maybe maths instead of english?

    It might show a lack of dedication, medicine and law are very sought after courses so you should probably pick which one you'd prefer and then base your choices around that. Couldn't you take maths as a 5 a-level?

    isnt maths better for both law and medicine?

    Edit: I dont know about english but I did bio, chem maths and his for both AS and A2 and frankly, history killed me. It brought all my other grades down too :grumble:
