    I'm currently in Year 12 and want to apply for law in the autumn. The law schools I am considering are LSE, UCL, King's, Queen Mary, SOAS, Kent, City and Brunel. I got 2A*s and 8As at GCSE.

    I only recently changed sixth forms and A level subjects. Because of this, I've missed the opportunity to sit my AS French exam this year. I plan on sitting the exam next year when I'm in Year 13. I am studying History, English Literature and Economics to A2.

    I wanted to do four A2 levels to make my application more competitive because I only got 2A*s at GCSE. However, I am unable to do that because of the situation with my AS French.

    Considering my GCSEs, will doing an AS in Year 13, and only 3 A2 levels in a relatively narrow range of subjects (all humanities/essay based) disadvantage my application to any of the above law schools?

    Look at each uni course to see what the entry requirements are.

    Ask your college if they can enter you for AS level French, perhaps as a private candidate if necessary.

    Your key consideration is probably one of, do you feel that you can do the AS level without it affecting your A2 grades. Especially with regards to the fact that most unis only ask for three A levels as an entry requirement. On the other hand, there is the element of "get the qualification while the opportunity to get it is there".

    Okay, thank you for the advice. It really helps.
