    They're good choices and if you enjoy them that's great Though would you not consider taking something like History or English instead of Product Design? Although not compulsory, they're very beneficial to have for something like Law in comparison to Product Design. Maths and Chemistry will keep doors open so I'd definitely keep them.

    If you wouldn't enjoy something like English or History, though, then of course don't put yourself through them

    Would you recommend taking a level history without taking gcse history

    Is taking history better than taking sociology or product design

    History and/or English is good.

    I have sociology and I have an offer from a Russel Group university- so don't drop it on the basis of not being 'facilitating'- it is in the context of your subject. I would advise on something like 2 'facilitating' subjects and 1 milder one. Dependant on what university you're aiming for. I'm just pointing out, to be frank- law is academically challenging. Not for the light minded, so choose ones you enjoy- please at least 1 in depth essay subject- like Philosophy, History or English. Maths and Sciences are really good as being complementary. Don't really see what product design would do in the context of it all.

    Something like Maths, Chemistry, Sociology and or English/History/Philosophy would do nicely. That is if you will definitely keep on one of the last three in your second year.

    Definitely. Doing GCSE History did not prepare me for A Level, you would be absolutely fine

    I'd say so, yes, especially for Law. But at the end of the day, it's up to you what you choose
