Look up the university course requirements to see what they look for/ like and also take into account what subject you enjoy and what you are good at

I was in a similar situation to you last year.
I wanted to study architecture for years and so my initial A level options were maths, physics, art and politics - the latter purely because i was interested in it. Coming up to sixth form i changed my mind and decided to try and go into politics via a law degree or PPE, so i ended up taking maths, history, politics, economics and art. I loved all of them and would probably recommend if you're undecided on which career to go for doing maths, history, physics and another of your choice (art or DT maybe?).

for architecture you should take maths and art/product design although art is generally preferred, this keeps most uni's open...
for law I would recommend taking an essay subject such as English lit or History, this shows a good skill. Also I know this may sound a bit weird but I would not recommend taking law because you don't need law to get into a law undergrad course at uni(at least for the majority of uni's), and if you were to take a different subject that would be useful for law but is still useful for other degrees it would leave your choices open incase you change your mind.
The best way to find out would be by looking at university websites and their course entry requirements, this would be your best way to find out which a levels you need.
Finally I also recommend not taking general studies or critical thinking as these a levels are generally not counted in most universities.
