    I'm applying for colleges soon, and I want to have a clear idea of what A-Levels to study. So far, I'm thinking:
    - English [Combined]
    - History
    - Politics
    - Law

    Do these sound like a good combination?
    Any help is much appreciated.

    They're a great combination as they compliment each other well. Do you know what course you want to do at uni?

    Law doesn't need an particular subjects. But your subjects are the perfect choices for it. However im not sure about the Law A-level. Apparently unis would prefer you not to do it at A level and do something like Politics instead. (Which you are doing) But its your fourth alevel so it wouldn't matter.

    Actually unis don't really look at politics as a faciliating subject either.

    Law.
    They're fine, you have two faciliating subjects plus two that may further your knowledge in your field. You're good to go

    I know its not faciliatating. He already has History and English. I just heard that they would prefer the Politics more than Law.

    Do you have a source?
    I doubt one is preferred over another. Maybe economics or geography which are more traditional would be preferred but generally there isn't much of a difference. Plus he's doing both so it doesn't really matter anyway

    I can't remember where I heard it. Im probably wrong. I just heard that unis would prefer it if you don't do law. But like you said hes doing both so it doesn't matter.
