Hi,

For a level I am thinking of doing maths, further maths, physics, economics and computer science. Would this be fine if I want to apply to Oxbridge for economics or law? Also, what careers could I pursue with these choices?

Hey. To do Law you deifnitely need to throw in some essay-based subjects in there like History or English Literature. However, you're setting yourself up well for a degree in engineering, computer science, maths, economics or physics.

Degrees in economics can lead you straight into banking - so you could become a banker, an economist or an accountant

My careers advisor told me that it is not necessary to have an essay based subject and that about 50% of students at top law schools did maths and non essay based subjects. Are you a law student by any chance?

It might be worth contacting Oxford and Cambridge to ask whether they'd accept you for those subjects with those A-levels.

Hey, I agree that it may be an idea to contact Oxford and Cambridge about specific entry requirements. For law, an essay based subject may be beneficial but I don't think it's specifically a requirement. Economics is definitely a good fit as well for the A Levels you've chosen.
For law careers, here's the Prospects website.
