Hi,so i really want to study law at university(preferably a Russell Group)my AS level grades were:
Sociology:A
Government and Politics:A
Philosophy and ethics:B(2 marks off an A)
History:C

Overall i had to end up dropping History as this seemed the most logical thing to do regarding grades,i am just worried now as i didn't choose english literature and have dropped history that universities won't take me as seriously.I am aware that even though my other subjects give me essay writing skills and analytical writing skills and are also very relevant to the law and modern day society,they are still not as traditional and as subjects such as History and English(except maybe philosophy).Is this the case?and will they still let me in a Russell Group university with AAB providing i get AAA next year to study law?I have ensured that i have done extra curricular activities just in case such as joining the debating society at sixth form etc....

Possibly. Depends on how high the standards are of the university you applying to!

There aren't really any preferred or compulsory subjects for law at university - successful applicants may have essay subjects, maths, sciences... you won't be at a disadvantage for not having English Literature, and dropping History, so don't worry about it. As for your grades, you have a good chance at being accepted by an RG university; just make sure the other aspects of your application are good enough, particularly your personal statement (and make sure your predicted grades are AAA!). It's probably worth applying to a couple of universities that ask for AAB as well, so if you don't get an offer from an RG uni, you still have somewhere to go, and if you do, then you'll have somewhere to place as your insurance.

Birmingham do require the test for the LLB - and the deadline is, as far as I know, the same as the UCAS one: 15th January
