    Hi there,

    So, my first career choice is to be a lawyer. I'm choosing my A levels next year and I want to pick the right ones. I like to plan ahead and make sure everything is right. I want to study History, English literature, Psychology and Sociology at A level. However, I may find History A level boring. The History A level is about the cold war and the Tudors. I like the Tudors, but I don't know if I am keen on the Cold war. Can someone give advice on History A level? What do you think of it? I know that History and English literature would be good together. But, you need high grades. I find Sociology interesting, but many people say that it is considered as "soft." My careers adviser told me to look at Universitys to see the entry requirements for Law. Quite a few require A's. I think it would be a lot easier for me to get a A in Sociology. Also, would Sociology, History, English literature and Psychology be a good combination for Law? Which one would you drop out of the 4? Also, my second career option is to be a Psychologist. So, I may need Psychology A level.

    Hi I can't give you any advice on History as I don't do it. But as for those combinations they are perfectly fine. Not sure which one I would drop I think you will be fine with dropping any.

    Hey! I'm currently studying law at York. My A-levels were mathematics, applied business, psychology and English language. If i'm honest, choose what you enjoy doing, because the grade you get is arguably more important that the subject I wish I had stuck to what I enjoyed and done maths and sciences because that's what I was good at! However, I think that writing essays in psychology and English language has helped me with my degree though. P.S. definitely do psychology, it was very interesting! good luck
