    I'm crying with laughter at their stupid comment, they'd be crying actual tears if they had to write the essays.
    I know right? And nicely said!
    Some people on TSR have a lot of confidence to actually comment on these things.

    Religious Studies is not the same as Philosophy and Ethics.
    It is actually,
    G571- Philosophy of Religion
    and G572- Religious Ethics
    G581 and G581

    I said Religious Studies is a joke, not Philosophy and Ethics. So actually your comment is the stupid one.
    As I have explained in the comment below; A level religious studies is comprised of 4 papers. Philosophy and Ethics options are 'religious' and come under 'religious studies'.
    G571, G572, G581, G582.

    I would have to disagree. Without an essay subject I think being accepted would be very difficult; it would be like applying for Medicine yet not doing any science Alevels. You cannot show the essay writing ability needed for a law degree in any other way I don't think.

    Agree with your LNAT point to an extent; good LNAT + good grade in essay subject(s) is what you're aiming for if you want to impress.
    This is wrong. A friend of mine studied all sciences (happened to get pretty much full marks in each of them) and is now studying law at one of the best universities in the country with me.

    It is not essential to have evidence of ability to write essays, but it does make things easier when you get to university, so I would recommend at least one essay subject. Also it does show that you have some skills that are transferable to law as well, so would help in applications.

    Regarding business studies, look at this:

    No, actually your really ignorant and your comment was the stupidest on this thread which actually made me and others laugh. Go on A-level Edexcel R.S and look at what it covers on the course structure. One whole unit covers philosophy, and the other covers Ethics hence it's philosophy and ethics. As my friend says : 'being ignorant is like being illiterate'.

    I don't need too. Plus, validating your argument with someone else bigoted opinion doesn't work...

    I know the structure, because I sat the exams on OCR.

    For the thread starter; sorry for ruining your thread.

    I would say that a strong essay subject would be beneficial for law, so that you may sit the LNAT and score highly

    I didn't change what I say. It's what I study on the Edexcel exam board. 'R.S.' is Philosophy and Ethics according to Edexcel and I have to say it's very interesting and challenging at the same time.
    And did you edit your comment? Anyways, a friendly advise from me to you 'please don't be so ignorant'

    I think you quoted me by accident and I agree with you :' validating your argument with someone else bigoted opinion doesn't work...'

    I want to do Further Maths, Computing, Pysics and Business Studies at As level. I have already done Maths

    I am not sure which I will drop for A level

    Are these subjects Ok for law even though there not like lit and history.

    These are my best subjects and i have not even done history at igcse. I want to go to a top university in England.
    I think it is important you take at least one 'respected' a level which indicates your ability to write fluently and articulate your arguments, however, you will need to emphasise the skills those subjects give you, that will make you an effective lawyer in your personal statement

    You do not need to do it at GCSE necessarily. Plenty of schools allow you to take history at AS without a GCSE in it. A couple of people in my class have done it without a GCSE in it.

    Same for lit - if you've done English Language (or whatever) at GCSE (or IGCSE in your case) then it might be allowed.


    Physics and maths are both fine, I had a look and actually maths is actually the most popular (along with history and english lit) A level taken by students enrolled at quite a few good universities. (looked on univesrity.which.co.uk)

    Business studies isn't great for top universities, but as a fourth AS or fourth A level it should be fine.

    I think an essay subject would be preferred - you will be writing lots of essays at uni after all - but strong science subjects like physics, chemistry, biology and maths won't hold you back, they're obviously very well respected

    Where are you from, incidentally?

    Ah okay, explains why you have a smaller range of A level options.

    Not being overly skpetical....but your literacy skills failed to impress me. To become a lawyer you must be extremely eloquent.
