Hi everyone,
I am in year 11 and will be choosing my A Levels very soon. As you can probably guess from the title, i want to do a law degree at a Russel Group uni (e.g. UCL, LSE etc.) therefore i know that the subjects i choose for A Levels are extremely important.
I am caught in two minds, as i want to do a range of subjects but can only pick 4 (which is probably enough!). So far, the only definite subject choices i have made are those which entail me studying History and Mathematics. After these two subjects i am caught in two minds, as i am not sure whether to study Chemistry and Physics or replace one of these subjects with English Literature. All three subjects are 'facilitating' subjects, so i am not worried about how highly regarded each individual subject is. I am interested in both Physics and Chemistry, and also English Literature, so i need advice on which two subjects to study out of these 3.
Thanks for reading and thanks in advance to any future responses.

If your level of interest in physics, chemistry and English literature is the same, choose the two you are best at/know you will get a good grade in.

Have you thought about a language/economics/RS as an A level? If it was me personally, I would choose Maths, History, Econ, RS. Out of the 3 you're unsure of, Eng Lit may help with essay writing more, and then I would choose the one you enjoy most out of physics/chem. Also, don't rule out law conversion courses. A couple of people from my year are going to go into law later, but have chosen to do a law conversion course, as apparently it "shows a wider interest". One of them has applied to read English, and the other one Politics and History

English literature would be more beneficial for a law degree as it teaches you how to analysis which is an invaluable skill when it comes to court cases and interpretations. Also the job of a lawyer requires a lot of writing up evidence and paper work making the skill of essay writing extremely important
