    I'm considering taking maths, physics and geography for A Level, and would maybe like to do law at university. Is geography essay based? I'm not taking history GCSE so I can't do that at A Level, and English lit/lang isn't my strong point (although predicted 8/9, so I'm not terrible), so wouldn't like to do that either, leaving me with geography which I really enjoy.

    There's no specific A levels required for law though they do state Lit and history as most ''useful''. Geography is essay based. Even if you do RE at A level, that too would be considered by law schools. foreign languages are also useful for law. you dont have to do history at GCSE to do it at A level, atleast not in my school. Good luck, your choices are fine for law. i've heard someone who did triple science and maths at A level went to do law instead of their initial plan - medicine.
