    I have currently decided i am going to retake year 12 with fresh subjects to peruse a law degree. I would like to know what subjects i should take.

    The list of subjects i am interested in are a level law,politics,philosophy and sociology. Bear in mind that i dont think i will meet the entry for subjects like history due to me not taking them at GCSEs. And anything with mathematics is a no no. I would like to predict that i will get 3 as in the subjects above when applying to unis like nottingham, birmingham, southampton and UCL but what subjects will get me in to do law. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    I highly recommend either English or a social science such as Psychology or Sociology. (A lot of the time you're asked for either English/History and a Social Science)

    Politics would be great, and I'm not 100% sure what Philosophy is but it sounds good.

    I do not recommend doing a Law A Level for a degree in Law.

    I understand universities like oxbridge dont think highly of a alevel law however im not looking to apply to unis like that. And i genuinely think i would enjoy law.

    Nottingham or Nottingham Trent?
    Nottingham (RG Uni) Requirments for Law - A*AA
    Nottingham Trent Requirements for Law -
    • 280 UCAS Tariff points minimum achieved from three A-levels or equivalent*
    • GCSE at grade C or above in Maths and English.

    Your subject combination is perfect for Nottingham Trent, and they should pretty good for Nottingham.
    Because its a russell group uni - Nottingham s requirements are on par with Oxbridge Universities such as KCL and Cambridge - So i'd definitely recommend NT.
    Good Luck!

    Unis actually don't care if you do a law a level or not now. Even Oxford have now said they don't mind if people do it
