I understand the whole situation about picking law at A levels, but i just want to know in general are my subjects strong? And how does geography hold up?

Geography is certainly respected! The other two are considered a bit soft, but that won't matter unless you go for Cambridge.

Your subjects choices are fine for a law degree as there are no set subject requirements. With that being said, it would help to take more respected subjects (law/psychology aren't respected) to strengthen your application. It's necessary because law is a very competitive course and other applicants will probably have taken more respected academic subjects and therefore will be given preference over you if you've got the same grades.

Lol I was like wow :eek: those grades are AMAZING. But you can get those grades if you put your mind into it.

Remember you will achieve those grades only if you work for it.

Thanks for the information/advice, I understand about the respected subjects issue, its just that i wouldn't want to do something, that would not remotely interest me.

Don't really know. I suppose it doesn't compare to, say, history/english literature/latin/maths etc. Of course only Cambridge states that clearly, so don't worry!
