    Hey, sorry about the capitals. :')

    In my Gcse's I'm aiming for/already have:

    Media A
    English Language A* (got an A first time round so resitting)
    English Literature A*
    Science Core A* (got a B first time round :/ )
    Science Applied A*
    Maths A (got a C first time round, confident I can do better)
    R.E A*
    Philosophy and Ethics A*
    Food Tech A*
    Music A*

    So bassically I'm aiming for, 8 A*'s

    but I'm wondering if this is even enough GCSE's to get into an "elite" law uni like Edinburgh.

    From what I've heard it's incredibly competetive.

    Also next year, I'm taking:

    Media Studies
    English Lang/Lit
    History
    Government and Politics studies
    Extended study (worth an As level)

    Please tell me whether I am going in the right direction?

    don't do media studies if you want to be taken seriously by top law Unis. Simple as that.

    I'd reconsider media studies, as it is considered a weak subject.

    Also, if you are doing English Lit/Lang with WJEC, then I'd consider switching to the Lit course. (I'm doing WJECT Lit/Lang, and frankly, it's not very good. But maybe it's just my school lol)

    If you do replace media studies, then try doing a subject that isn't essay intensive. It's not necessary to do this, it will just be a nice change from your other three.
    It's really quite a coincidence that you mention that, becuase I've already changed media studies to Philosophy, a good choice?

    I would consider taking a science based subject, to show your variety and ability in conceptual thinking.. i think chemistry would be best however if you got a B in core science this would probably be difficult. Have you consider biology??

    I would advise [although I am still a GCSE student myself :rolleyes:] that you swap media with maths/philosophy/chemistry/biology
