    I've chosen maths, chemistry, biology, English lit and Spanish; are these good choices for a law degree at somewhere like Cambridge or LSE? I really hate history; I don't have to take it do I? Thanks

    You might be able to justify it, but have you considered switching out one of the subjects (obviously not English lit) for a different essay subject?

    It depends what you drop after AS, but if you dropped Spanish then you'd only have one arts subject at A2, which might be unusual. That's probably not a big though and I won't pretend to know a lot about the law admissions process - they care more about how well you do than what you do it in, as long as your subjects are facilitating and you've got an essay subject in there.

    They're all facilitating subjects so you can't go wrong. I plan to do Law but I'm only taking two facilitating subjects - English Literature and History - so I'm hoping the others (Government and Politics and English Language) won't put me at a disadvantage. None of the other facilitating subjects really appeal so I'm kinda stuck with 2.

    My classmate got into Cambridge Law with very similar subjects to yours (had german instead of spanish and further maths instead of english lit)

    You'll be fine.
