    Thank you so much, that was really helpful, I'm glad that maths isn't included.

    Depends what University you want to go to. Since law is a really competitive degree, it would be in your best interest to do more challenging subjects (i.e. probably best to stay away from general studies). I personally don't study/know much about law but mathematics is always useful to have. I would say:

    History
    English
    Mathematics
    Philosophy

    Do some research and look at what Universities expect and what might help you with the course. Hope this helps!

    Thank you, the schools I've applied to do not do Philosophy. I am not too keen on History, however I've decided to take English. Maths I am still unsure of whether it is my forte.

    I'd suggest

    History
    Sociology
    English language/literature
    Psychology

    You could potentially do law a level as well but you don't really have to. It only puts you ahead with the knowledge and can show you if you actually would want to do the subject at a degree level.
    However, you have to see if the uni you would want to go to in the future will require any specific a level courses

    The most helpful A Levels for law are generally History, English Literature, Psychology, Government and Politics, languages e.g. French, Geography, Sociology and Philosophy

    That is so helpful, thank you. I wanted to take Psychology instead of Maths.
    Thanks for helping me clear that up

    There is no need for me to do Maths then, so instead I'd take Psychology, English lit and lang, geography and Government and Politics.

    Thank you for you help, it was very useful.
