    Don't have a clue about Law or Psychology but I'm loving History at the moment so I would definitely recommend it

    I've come up with my three potential subject choices, Law, History and Psychology. How valuable will they be and are they a good combination?
    Consider a science (I'm referring to physical/life, not social) or numerate subject, law will have little impact on your future unless you want to become a lawyer (not fun, I'd advise against hahaha). History is a good filler subject as it allows you to demonstrate research skills to some extent, the same goes for psychology.

    You don't need to forge a path right now, think about what you want out of college and then decide on subjects which can help you achieve those objectives. I wanted to get involved in medicine at some point, which help guide my choices, my brother (trainee lawyer) didn't take either of those three and is now working for a magic circle law firm (that's a big deal). Don't stress about it too much.

    If you want to look at it through a clinical lens, having three "soft" subjects doesn't give you mych breadth. Unless you have an industry or career in mind, I'd say pick subjects which allow you to demonstrate your abilities: a science (a numerate science like chem, biology, physics), a social science (like psychology or to some extent history), and another which you know you will enjoy/do well in. Good luck!

    PS. I did chem, physics, human bio A level and psych AS level. Now I'm working as a geologist > note that I didn't take geology or geography.
