    For Law they want any subject that shows that you can argue well and follow through using logic. Essay subjects are good as is maths, foreign languages or humanities.
    Typical law a levels are Maths,french,history or even the law a level itself

    For getting into university for Law normally they will just want you to have at least one essay based subject showing you have a wide range of knowledge. If you go on to the website called "which uni" and search for law it will show you all the universities that do it, so if you click on the course information and scroll down it will show you the three subjects that most people did at a-level to get into that university. idk if that is helpful but yeah

    That is if you want to do law at uni, which you don't have to, its sometimes better if you do a one year conversion course onto law after uni anyway so the a-levels you pick really don't have to be to do with law at all

    DON'T do biology, you'll really be saving yourself by avoiding sciences if you're not planning on studying science/ medical subjects.
    Out of law and government and politics, I imagine law would give you a better idea of whether or not you want to study it at uni. It would probably also give you an advantage when studying it as you might already be familiar with some concepts.

    I don't think you need Law A Level to do study it at uni, so I'd just pick a few essay-based subjects, maybe a language, anything you want tbh.
    This is from Oxford's website:

    • A-levels: AAA
    Candidates are also expected to have at least a C grade in GCSE Mathematics, or other evidence to demonstrate that they are appropriately numerate. We accept any subjects at A-level except General Studies. To study in France, Germany or Spain candidates would be expected to have the relevant modern language to A-level.

    definitely either law or gov pol as bio is a nightmare if you dont really need it dont do it. i think law would be more appropriate

    I got myself a 99p A*/A grade revision guide/notes of ebay and it covered my entire AS and A2 subjects and it was in note form so it was so easy to revise which made the courses so easy for me. The ebay sellers name is bargaindealsdev if you interested, you can enter it into google and it will come up and all their notes for a ton of subjects are all 99p. They also have other subjects which are good too Hope that helps
