    Hi, I'm new on this site and just wondering if I could get a few answers to some questions

    I'm 20 years old and I left school 4 years ago, I have done some further education since school but I joined the army when I was 16 therefore I couldn't go to college. I am now starting to study my A-Levels next week via home learning. I am taking Eng Lit, Maths, Psychology and Law. I want to study Law at uni and I have heard people say that you shouldn't study it at A Level. I want to know why? Also has anyone studied these subjects and what are they like? Do you think home learning will be difficult compared to classroom teaching? I done well in my GCSE's and have received distinctions in all my Army Administrative courses in the past.

    Thank You :-)

    Studying law at a-level won't harm your application, but it won't help it either.

    Like laura94 said, it won't really harm you, but because when you go to Uni, you'll be taught everything you do in A level again anyway, so it's not a requirement.
    For example, you can't do Maths at Uni unless you've done it before.
    Plus, not all colleges/schools offer Law at A-level, so Unis can't expect it.

    At least I think that's the reason.

    Good luck with everything though!
