    I'm just wondering, but I read on the internet that you need ABB in A-level but what A-levels? Is it any type of A-level?

    I read that top unis require A*AA and even that is not enough sometimes since Law is so competitive.

    Actual grade requirements vary from university to university but I'm not aware of any institutions that specify particular A-Levels.

    I'd aim for at least two academic/traditional/facilitating subjects to prove you can deal with the academic nature of university study. Essay subjects may be useful but I know law students with science A-Levels exclusively so nothing is really compulsory (unless a university website says otherwise, which I doubt)

    I don't know of a university with higher than A*AA requirements.

    Cambridge, KCL, QMUL, LSE, Durham and UCL state A*AA but whilst some students exceed A*AA, it wouldn't be a requirement.

    It depends on the university, and if it's collegiate it also depends on the college
    They all require traditional subjects, and most request things like a B in GCSE English and maths, and sometimes a GCSE in a language. They have no specific A Level subjects they want you to take

    I think most if not all universities would prefer more academic essay based subjects than more than one art or textiles or something (I've read a university that states that they don't include these in their offer but I can't remember which one)

    The exception is the ludicrous Churchill College Cambridge.

    but look at their admission stats for law over the last five years

    I knew some Camb colleges bumped their offers but A*A*AA/A*A*A* is a bit absurd when the university norm for law is A*AA. A*A*A would be fair enough if they had doubts about the student but beyond that is a little ridiculous.
