Hi, I'm new to the forum as of today

For my upcoming A Levels, I have opted to study: Media, ICT Applied, Sociology and English Language.

What is the general perception of these subjects? ICT, Eng Lang and Sociology I assume are the more academic subjects. Having said that, at times I found parts of the Media GCSE course also very academic. The amount of writing is as if the subject is a second English

For background information; I plan on maybe studying Law at university. It's a long way off yet, but I'm definitely leaning towards that path so long as my grades allow that.

They seem reasonable. Just ensure you get good grades and you will get to that Law degree.

Honestly, for law, apart from English language, those subjects wouldn't be seen as that academic. Most law schools look for people who've taken a combination of like English lit/history or even philosophy. I think it all depends on what unis you apply to, but certainly the better ones, particularly Russell groups won't see ICT and media as academic.

Surprising because ICT is actually a largely academic subject. The amount of analysing and writing is on level with other subjects that are considered as being 'hard'.

If you're thinking of applying to a Russell Group university then have a look at this document: http://russellgroup.org/InformedChoices-latest.pdf

If not, then look at other university's entry requirements for Law to see what A Levels they may require.

Yep, I guess English/ history are deemed as more relevant and "harder"
