    I intend on doing an intensive a-level in law, out of the two exam boards, which one would you recommend?

    Also, with the selected exam board would you be able to further recommend exercise / revision book?

    Lastly, how have your experiences been with law as a subject? would you describe it as difficult, time-consuming or rewarding?

    I am interested in applying for law, is - history, politics and law a weak combination?

    Hi I just completed my A level in law with OCR and got a grade A overall(359/400 ums), I used this book for AS http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCR-Law-AS-J...ocr+law+for+as. I used this book for A2 http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCR-Criminal...ocr+law+for+a2.

    Law involves a lot of memorising, in particular statutes and cases, if you aren't very good at memorising lots of details then maybe law isn't for you. My memory is fairly good so I found it decent in terms of difficulty, two of the units are relatively short whilst two are quite long so it isn't as time consuming as one would think. I personally haven't studied Law A level with AQA but my friend found it hard, With OCR you have some sort of choice of questions in 3/4 of the exams so you can afford to leave out some topics which makes it easier for you. For your last point I would say they seem fine but other people will know better than me, I've also heard people say that universities prefer you not to take Law at A level if you are planning on doing a law degree for some reason, personally I don't think that's true but just wait for more replies regarding that.

    Hope I've helped you.
