    English Lang is completely different to GCSE. What other humanities/essay subjects are there in the English Lang block?

    Were you planning to take English lit, History, and combined English lang and lit? That's a bad idea, since you're doing English lit twice.

    I was plannning to take English Lit,History and Psychology .But Psychology isnt compatible with the option blocks.
    An alternative choice is to pick History,English lang and lit,and Philosophy but then i only have one facilitating subject.

    Most colleges won't let you study Lit and Lang, and Lit as the courses are so similar.

    Law certainly doesn't require both English and History. If you want to do both (which certainly isn't a bad idea) I'd look to do a language or a science for your third choice.

    Hey
    I suggest that as your third choice you pick either sociology or global perspectives. This will give you a better understanding of society, the various persisting cultures and the mindsets of people and how their varying lifestyles affect their ideologies. This will be beneficial for you while pursuing law as you will require good analytical skills of people and their judgements.
    Good Luck
