    At the start of s5, I didn't really know what I wanted to do after I left school and took a range of highers, mainly tailored towards a science degree: higher english, maths, chemistry, biology and history. I have now realised that the social subjects like history is where my passion really lies and and thinking about studying law at university, perhaps as a joint degree with politics. I got 5 As in my prelims.

    In s6, I am hoping to study AH history and maths, and crash highers in modern studies and geography. Will these subjects be acceptable for studying law, as I really hope my previous choices will bring down my chances, especially places like Glasgow which is my first choice. Would it be better to swap AH maths, for AH english, or would it be ok providing i got the grades?
    I also have a job, volunteering and hoping to get work experience on my PS before I apply.
    Sorry for all the questions, I just don't want to regret my choices later on.

    Tthere are no specific subjects for law. Unis like traditional subjects and an essay based subject like history cna be handy.
    Do the ones that you enjoy and will get the best grades in.

    but would it be seen as a disadvantage if I studied maths in comparison to someone who had the same grades as me who studied english?

    No. They are only interested in your degree grade and to a lesser extent where you studied.
