    I want to do Law in uni, but I'm unsure on what A-levels to take as I want to keep my options open. I was thinking either three of these subjects:

    Sociology, Maths, History, Eng Lit/Lang or Gov and Politics? Can anyone tell me what's good/bad about any of these subjects?

    I took history, English lit and law at a level, and had no problem getting into a law degree at a RG.

    I wouldn't consider maths for a law degree, and sociology is weaker than the other options. The rest are solid, traditional A-Levels x

    Thank you for your help!

    But the problem is that I'm scared that I may not be able to achieve a B/A grade in Eng literature and History GCSE as my exams are coming up. That's why I was thinking about these other subjects too just in case.

    In that case, i would prioritise sociology.

    However, you should really work hard in English/History, as they are fundamental elements of law. I got a B in History and will forever regret it! KEEP PUSHING!!

    All of them are good subjects. Just pick the ones where you are confident you'll score higher in.

    I absolutely would recommend maths for a law degree. They use a lot of the same logical skills.
