    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on which A-levels I should take. Eventually I would like to be a lawyer or have a job within politics therefore it is important I take essay based subjects.
    So far I would like to take:
    History
    Sociology
    RE

    and either French or Biology (if my school run economics I would take that instead)

    Although I am worried that I will struggle with Biology and French, has anyone got any advice?

    Hi , i've personally never done Biology or French A-Levels, only at GCSE, but I did to History A-Level and am currently doing RE. I would say that lots of people do not do Biology and History/RE etc, as those subjects are a lot of learning. It just depends on how much work you're prepared to put in and how stressed you get out about exams. On another note, many universities like you to have a type of English, not all, and most of them don't tell you that on their websites but it helps as the learning paths are similar. Hope it helps!
