    I did Maths, Economics, Geography...so no traditional essay subjects...but I did write essays in Econ and Geography. A friend also did all sciences and maths and doesn't have any problems.

    What grades did you get?
    Do you know many other people that have not done any traditional essay subjects or do most do essay subject(I know your friend did not. I am just wondering if you know many more people)?
    Did you find it hard (or harder than most) to adapt to the law degree?

    I am very sorry for all the questions and I appreciate your help.

    Thanks

    I have decided to do Maths, Physics, Economics, Computing and Further Maths (AS only). I am about to take the Maths AS exams.

    I received offers from 5 unis and I'm now in my final year of Oxford law having done Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computing as A-levels.
    Is Computing respected? On the available blacklist it is in the less favoured column.

    I got AAB (1 mark off AAA).

    There is a lot of variation and a real mix of subjects. There is a range - people who have done classic history, English lit and a language, people who have a weird combination and people who have done no essay subjects.

    As law is a social science, I think if you do a social science so economics, politics etc. you should have no problems.

    I think generally they don't mind as long as they can see your potential. Even with my subjects, I got offers from King's, Leeds, Oxford and Newcastle as well as Warwick.

    Personally I have found it okay. I mean history students were initially better at the referencing systems and stuff like that but you soon pick it up. I really like it because I'm doing something very different to my A-levels. The coursework essays I do find harder than the exams, but I don't think my A-levels have caused this.

    Hope this helps.
