    So this may sound like a strange question, but I'm interested to know;

    If you had to compare studying Law at University to an A Level course what would it be?

    When I say compare I mean the techniques used in both revising for final exams and exam writing technique.

    History?

    Hey! So would you say that there's a lot of fact learning and applying that information to a question?

    Yeah, i guess that is the basic principle of law. The more things you know, the more you can write in a essay and if you know it well then it would be easier to apply things to problem questions

    I've heard law uni essays are very different to ones at school, but i'd say History.

    Sure, for theoretical-based subjects such as Public Law, History is a good comparison.

    However, the majority of your assessments will actually be problem questions. These are much more comparable to Maths or a science subject due to the logistics of it. You learn rules and you apply them.

    To put this in context, I'm in my second year studying Law and did Maths, Chemistry and History at A-level and found that Maths is the subject that best prepared me for the degree.
