I don't know what to do, could you please give me some advice? I was thinking A level business studies,law, psychology, English language and critical thinking as a fifth option(fast track course) I'm not really sure because I keep changing my mind so could you please give me some advice and will I get in to a good uni with these A levels?

Maths (NOT Use of Maths)
Economics OR business studies
English literature or literature & language
History
Geography
Government & politics
Psychology wouldn't be wrong if you were desperate to do it

I'd suggest avoiding law though - often unis prefer that you don't do it, and it can be regarded as a soft A Level.

For law, any combination of solid academic A Levels will usually do. That said, you'll find doing an essay subject beneficial, and the classic combination is history, English lit and government & politics.

For business / finance, maths will be beneficial, but it's one of those subject areas where most A Levels are acceptable

Don't pick anything you think you'll hate - that's not a fun way to spend two years

Maths Stats, English/History and any language is always a golden combo.

It would help if you knew that you wanted to do law, finance or business specifically. If you're leaning towards the latter two, I'm surprised that you aren't doing maths. English lit is usually preferable to English lang.

I would definitely swap Business for Economics as it's more respected, although a little harder it will pay off. I'm not sure maths is required for Law so your other subjects seem fine although English Lit is better than English Lit & Lan.

Business studies is seen as very soft, and so are psychology and English language really. I'd say you definitely need Maths and probably even Economics. In my opinion, you should scrap English lang and business studies and go for maths and econ. edit: just saw you said you wanted to go into law. Okay, don't bother with economics then. Erm, I'd say do maths though, that's really useful. BS is pretty pointless, tbh

Drop Business Studies and Law. You could always swap Business for Economics, a lot of people tend to take Econ for Law. History and Lang/Lit combined are good choices but English Lit is much more respected than Lang/Lit combined. Instead of Psychology, why not take Maths or a Science. You'll need a logic based subject somewhere in there.
