    I'm going to college in September and want to do Law in Uni eventually. These are the subjects I want to study in college, Law, Sociology (but the fast track of it), English language and History. However, my dad who has been given advice from people he knows who is in law jobs says that I should drop History and take up business studies a level. However, I really wanted to do History (even if it's just the fast track of it). What do you think I should do? If I did decide to do History instead of Business Studies will I be able to take the a level business studies when I go to Uni? Does it vary from university to university?

    History is far more looked upon than business studies, top unis which are a must when studying law want canditates to get good grades in good subjects. business studies being 'soft' means it could be a bit of a risk
