    If you want to do law the best combination of subjects are:

    - Literature
    - History
    - Modern Foreign Language
    - Maths

    From what you have said you have literature and history which are both good subjects.

    (Government and) Politics is also an alright third choice.

    However I would reconsider English language.

    It's worth mentioning unis frown on people having overlapping subjects such as literature and language, economics and business or maths and statistics.

    I would recommend a science, maths, geography or economics (a science or a social science) to give your application more diversity. However a language will suffice if you'd rather.
