    I'm thinking English, History, Law and possibly Politics if my first choice college allows me to take a fourth.
    Currently, my GCSE predicted grades are all either A*'s or 8 [the new 1-9 equivalent] and I'm on target to achieve these with a year left of studying to do.
    My first choice of college is Winstanley as it seems to be pretty good and it's fairly close to me. Has anyone ever taken any of the subjects I'm considering there?
    Any help is much appreciated.

    Do the subjects you think you will enjoy and get the best grades in - these are by far the most important things to consider as your grades will get you into a law course more than your subjects.

    This is a minor comment but some universities are a little sniffy about taking law as an A-level, although attitudes have changed somewhat from when many more thought like that. However I have seen plenty of applications from people who have had a A-level in law and have gone to high profile universities, so this is a very minor comment.

    English, History and Maths are probably the most desirable, possibly Politics or a science to diversify your application. Most important thing though is to get good GCSE grades, good A2 predictions and a good LNAT score. I've heard as well that universities don't like A level law.

    Literally any.

    Any A levels which can get you the highest possible marks.

    If this is Law, then take Law, if it happens to be Maths, take Maths.
