oxbridge's views on a-level choices watch

    • Thread Starter

    I need to pick the 4 subjects which I am going to take for as-levels in the next few weeks. I am hoping to apply for Oxbridge (preferably Oxford) to do law at the end of my a-levels assuming get my predicted results (as and a*).
    I am certain that I want to do French and History however, I need to decide between Politics, Psychology and English Literature for my last two options.
    I think I want to do Psychology and Politics however I am scared that Oxford won't consider me as impressively as some other applicants as psychology and politics aren't viewed as such facilitating subjects when compared to subjects like English ( as I have been told)

    Please can you tell me if this is true and also give me advice on what I should do

    (btw the school I go to won't let me do 5 subjects so that cannot be a solution)

    Most Unis don't ask for specific subjects for Law - they just want VERY high grades. So just make sure you choose the subjects you enjoy the most and have a realistic chance of getting A/A* in.

    Lots of good advice about applying for Law here - http://www.law.ox.ac.uk/undergraduate/admissions.php
