I would like to know if Law is classed as an "academically rigorous subject" by universities - I have heard many different views on this so I'm not sure...I really want to take it as it seems interesting and like something I could be good at. Any useful information about Law A-Level would also be appreciated :-)
Also, does anyone have any experience of, or know anything about BTEC Level 3 Forensic Science? It seems really interesting, especially as Forensics is a route I want to go down as a career, but I don't know if BTEC courses (A Level equivalent) are valued by universities, or if it would be better to take a different A-Level (either psychology or business) instead? From a practical point of view, I also think because it is all coursework, it may give me a slight break compared to my other choices of Chemistry, Biology and probably Law which will involve heavy revision. Any experiences/ opinions welcome!
Thank you :-)

This list will tell you all you need to know about which A levels are classified as rigorous and which are not. A-level Law as you'll see is in the B list and will therefore only be suitable for those taking law and land economy at Trinity College, Cambridge. Universities have varying standards and entry requirements, you need to know where you to go and see what they say about your subject combination.
I would advise against a BTEC and stick to the A-levels as they'll offer you more opportunities and prepare you for rigorous work (in uni, at the very least, half of your work will be exams and you need to be able to cope with that, doing only coursework will not prepare you for it).
