    So the grades I got were:
    3 A's - Spanish, Religious Studies and Health and Social Care
    5 B's - History, Psychology, Maths, Additional Science and English Language
    2 C's - Core Science (as I did foundation) and English Literature (even though I was predicted a B but I knew I messed up in the exam)
    Do you think these grades are okay for someone who really wants to do Law at Uni??

    And for A levels I'm planning on doing: History, Psychology, Classical Civilization and combined English (But as I messed up my English Lit and didn't get a B, I think I have to choose a different subject) Do you guys have any suggestions for another subject I can do to replace combined English if I can't do it?

    They're absolutely fine just pick universities wisely as places like Birmingham and Oxford look for A*'s predominantly

    Depends on a multitude of factors tbh. Where would you want to go for uni? and what grades would be needed? how much work did you put in for GCSE? (gives you a an idea of how much more you'll need to do for A-Level) and ideally if you were to replace English with another subject I'm assuming law would be a good choice if available however, from what I've heard it's very intense. As someone who scraped through GCSE's (7 C's and 3 B's) and achieved ABB at A-level (bit of a humblebrag) your results certainly aren't bad, even if they aren't what you expected/wanted. I'm sure you'll be fine
