    Hi everyone!

    Im currently in year 12, studying 3 full time AS/A levels. Im studying Business Applied, Sociology, and Health and social care.
    Right now im thinking of dropping Business Applied, mainly coz im not enjoying the course, and im struggling miserably with the coursework.
    Do i still have any chance of getting into a good law uni with 2 full A levels and and 2 AS levels?

    If i work my ass off and get 2 A's in sociology and health, shall i risk dropping business and taking up another AS subject?

    im really confused :confused:
    Some advice would be really appreciated! thanks.

    I would suggest looking at law courses if that's what you wanna do. Look at what they ask for and then you can make up your mind from that. Law is quite a competitive course and I presume that quite a lot of them will ask for 3 good Alevels but if you look around then you can see what you will need for exactly what you want.

    thanks for replying.

    I have researched into law, and i pretty much have my mind set on the career. Queen mary's uni say minimum required are 2, as long as i can get 240 ucas points. So does that mean that they will accept two A levels? if i get high grades in these two, and take on another AS subject i might still have a chance of getting into a good uni?

    I they say minimum required 2 then they will accept only 2 if you get the right amount of UCAS points I would presume. But that's only 1 uni so I'd check to see if others do similar things because you may be severely limiting your chances. If you're taking up an AS then at least it shows to them that you're still committed to education and that just because a course wasn't right for you you don't just give up. Good luck!

    If I am being brutally honest, your A-levels are not the quintessential ones for a Law degree.

    Generally, combinations include English Lit and History, so maybe pick one of these up?

    If you're currently doing 3 subjects and you drop one you'll end up with 2 Alevels, not 2 ALevels and 2 AS levels.

    Law is very competitive and you've got a weak subject combination, if you want to go to uni at all I'd recommend you at least get A levels in all three subjects, even then I'm unsure you'll be able to do Law at a 'good' university, when faced with competition from students with subjects such as History and English Lit.

    Having looked at a random selection of Law courses on UCAS all the one's I've looked at ask for 3Alevels minimum, some ask for LNAT, Exeter asks for 3 ALevels and an additional AS, it does say minimum 3 Alevels, but the difference between minimum and prefered is that you shouldn't bother applying with less than the minimum, but are less likely to receive an offer without the preferred qualifications.

    Kent say:
    (Original post by Kent UCAS)
    Grades AAB in three A levels required. Candiadates taking only two A levels will be considered individually.
    So guessing only the strongest 2 A level candidates will be considered for offers.
