    We've just finished choosing our options in school for GCSE and I've chosen graphic design, geography and IT. I want to become a solicitor and do a degree in law after my A levels, I was just wondering are these options ok for law? I know that A levels are more important but do these options effect what I want to do?

    Most universities don't require specific courses for A-Level. Maths is always a good one to have for A-Level and at especially at GCSE level you need to be getting good grades in all the core subjects if you're thinking of doing law. At A-Level you can do pretty much what you want but universities place a special value on academic subjects. Maths, English Literature, History, Politics, Languages, anything like that will definitely help you get into a law course -- but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do more creative subjects that you enjoy at A-Level as well: it's all about balance.
