Hi,

I am about to choose my A-Levels and intend to study Law at Oxbridge. However, i am having a little bit of trouble choosing the right A-Levels. I am definitely doing Maths, French, History and then cannot choose between German/Chemistry and Physics.

Any advice would be appreciated

If you're certain that you want to study law then either of these subjects would be appropriate.

German would mean two languages which could be difficult.

Physics or chemistry would go well with maths and give you two arts and two science subjects which are a good mix and wouldn't limit further choices should you decide not to study law.

Personally i think you should choose chemistry as you already have one language subject and physics is quite similar to maths.

Hi,

Yah for law the first 3 subjects u mentioned seem ideal. When it comes to chosin yuour 4th subject I would say go for a science ie: Chemistry or Physics. Although German is a good 'traditional' subject the fact that u take a sceince will show universities that you have a wider skill base which in turn will make you stand out from the rest of the candidates. But remember this is just my opinion - just go for a good traditional subject which u feel u can do well in. Good Luck!!

Bye

i'm planning on taking Geography, Economics, English Lit and Lang, and Biology for A-level as well as French to AS, as i also want to do law.

Here's why:
Geography and economics are both social sciences
English Lit and Lang is an essay subject (as is geo in a way, especially in yr13)
French is a language
Biology a science

giving an overall broad base, which is what most law people at unis look for, but they must all be academic.

your subjects:

maths - difficult subject, shows intellect and a logic mind
history - good for law, and is an essay
french - language which is good

i'd now go for a science to make a broader base, especially with chemistry, but it is apparently more difficult than physics, either would do, which ever you prefer or are best at, as you will need at least AAB
