    Make sure you do english, french/german/spanish and history and youll be fine. Whatever else you should do things that you find enjoyable ... like music or media studies etc.

    Like I said if you can study Latin and/or greek that is an advantage. History and English Language I would also recomend, although I didnt do these two subject myself at A level. Work experience is also very important. I'm currently taking a gap year to do work experience.

    History and English would be perfect for Law, plus at least one science if you're not doing Double Award.

    Could you 'getting into law' experts advise me what A-Levels would be needed to get in to law (I want to get into a good university) to make me stand out from the rest of the applicants. Also do you advise taking a law degree or doing another degree and then a post grad, if the latter which degree do you reccomend?

    I got in to do law with bio, phys and maths at A2....at cam....but if i were you....i'd put at least one essay subject...

    You need very good grades to get in to top unis for law cos its such a competitive course.....but unis that don't interview may prefer you to have an essay subject...

    Having said that...i was rejected from bristol....but got offers from leicester, cam, UCL and KCL (all without interview).

    To stand out from other applicants...you've got to show a keen interest in the subject....eg. work experience....attending law conference...etc...

    Thanks for the advice! I'm not sure if I'm suited to law because I'd be too lazy to want to do work experience which suggests I'm not passionate enough about law. But I really want a job where I can argue, although I cannot think of anything other than law.

    LOl. I've said this before but i'll say it again. Classics (latin and greek) are an advantage. I took gcse Latin and Greek. A level Latin, AS Greek and A Level classical civ. History and ENg Lang are good at A level, but I didnnt take these due to boring content at my school.

    I'm currently doing a years work experience at a solicitors down south. I will be going to C'Bridge to do a classics degree later this year. I got an offer of AA, but thats due to my sporting abilities, most students need AAB/AAA for top class uni's. So yes you can do other degrees. You do need to do an extra year of studying but like I said a lot of top law firms love to take people with a classics degree rather than law because with classics you have to be extrmely dedicated which is what they look for.

    That is a very good idea to take a year out! Classics has always looked very appealing though I've never studied it in my life which would mean it probably isn't very available and I probably couldn't study it

    To be honest with you....i did a weeks work exp in a solicitors firm...and it wasn't that interesting...if only cos i didn't do anything other than photocopy stuff!!!

    The stuff about being lazy...don't worry...i'm lazy too...just choose AS nand A2 levels that you'll enjoy first....cos the grades need to be good...and if you do subjects you don't like...you probably won't get good grades. The good thing about law is that most A2 combinations don't restrict your options...

    I want a city lifestyle more than anything! So I will not choose law at a-level and i will choose a-levels that don't stop me from going into any other career?

    Well...take me for example...i did all the sciences and maths at AS to leave my options open for medicine at uni....but decided against it and dropped chem...this didn't mean that i couldn't apply for law...

    Just choose A levels that you'll enjoy....there's no point in doing ones that you hate.

    Thanks, although I must admit it was more to do with going down under to watch the world cup , but potential employers arent going to know that!

    If you really wanted to it can be self taught. There are some really good books I could recomend. I pretty much taught my self AS greek because our teacher was sick half the year and I still got an A. Greek is nasty though, i'd learn latin if you really wanted to do classics, your school would be more than happy to put you in for the exam.
