    I`ve only recently discovered that I would like to do law as a career and I`m wondering if i`d be able to get into any of the law courses with the A-levels I have. I`m studying Biology,Chemistry, Health and Social Care and English literature. All help would be appreciated.

    You don't need to study law to be a lawyer. Research GDLs.

    English literature is helpful, carry that on to A2 if you haven't already. I think an application could be successful if you are doing English, Biology and Chemistry A2s. HSC is a bonus. You need to show interest in a legal career or the law itself. Perhaps you could display a particular interest in scientific aspects of law e.g. medical negligence law.

    Do some work experience, do some volunteering, go and visit a court, apply for open days and law events. Then write about them in a personal statement. It could work fine.

    My A levels were Maths French and Music and I got accepted for 5 law courses!

    Law doesn't require specific A-levels and you're doing three very respected subjects. You're fine.

    With good grades in english, chemistry and biology, your application will be just as competitive as people who've done all essay subjects.
