    I've recently recieved my gcse results and managed to Get 1A*, 7A's and 3B'S. Would these results be admirable or sufficient for the top Universities for Law E.g UCL, LSE, Durham ect ?

    Also, for A levels, I've chosen History, Mathetmatics, Psychology and AS R.E. Are these choices fine enough? Thank you

    My elder brother applied for LSC and Queen Mary and they weren't even looking at GCSE results. I think most unis are looking for 2/3 A*'s or equivalent in A Levels.

    Personally, I am taking Law, Business Studies, Accounting, Maths and English for A Levels to give myself a better insight into the subjects so that it's a bit easier when I go to apply for unis like Cambridge, LSC etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Good choices. Make sure you do well at all 4, aim for 4 As. Really make sure you get those grades!

    Hi, I was just wondering what subject you'd like to apply for to study in uni?

    I'd strongly advise swapping out Mathematics for English Lit (or R.E. AS for an EngLit AS/Maths AS)- English and History are staples when applying for a Law course. You'll stick out by not doing both. Of course, it's more than possible to gain entry to a very good university with those subjects, but why put yourself at a disadvantage from the get-go? Pretty much every Law student I know (including myself) did at least an AS in both History and English. Maths, while interesting, doesn't have many compatible skills with Law. You'll learn argument structure in History, but your vocabulary will expand quite significantly with English- most of this vocabulary will be useless to you, but it's the process of assimilating new words and retaining their meaning which will help you most in a Law degree. Slot it in somewhere, in my opinion .

    Thank you for the advice When speaking to everyone about A-level choices, I was told to rather pick the subjects that I would do the best in for Law. This is because the actual grades acquired hold much greater significance than the A-levels themselves. . Of course English literature is rather favourable for many Unis, but I am not certain I would end up with a guaranteed A/A* therefore i've chosen subjects which I will strive best in giving me the best shot at all the top universities.

    Ah, if you don't think you'll get an A in English, fair enough. Good luck!
