Honest opinion what do you guys think about A level Law, ICT and Biology?

I do AS Chem, Biology, Law and ICT but im dropping Chemistry next year.

Im thinking of doing accounting and finance or maybe something to do with computers like networking. Im not sure.

What do you think about Law, I know unis apparently dont like. Soft subject? Academic?

Personally I dont think its soft coming from a student who goy higher than average GCSE results.. lots of memorising and application

Ps if I could do it again I would definitely change ICT and Chemistry to History and Maths.

Thanks

Dont think Law is a soft subject, it encourages critical thinking. ICT is good, especially today its almost essential as you will probly use them
Biology aswell, always good to have a science subject.
I think if you are doing Acc and Finance, probly good to have a maths subject or business related subject
Also,, try to get relevant work experience

I got into accounting and finance degrees at durham/bath/loughborough etc with maths, biology and chemistry.

ICT or Law would be good background for an accounting/business degree I think, as you don't have business/maths but high russel group universities often have lists like 'have only one of the following:' and I'm fairly sure both ICT and law are in them but you'll have to check!

Also, if you're not a fan of chemistry you've done the right thing dropping it. Its hard and if you don't have the motivation to want to do it it'll be even harder.
Do what you enjoy and at the end there will be a route into the career you want. Plus you're more likely to get good grades if you like the subject!

Having relevant work experience will be essential if you want to get into a good uni! Gives you something noticable to talk about on your personal statement.
