    So, I want to study law at uni and i'm just about to start college in September. I've chosen to do English, Law and History but I'm undecided as to whether I should swap history to business. I'm equally as good at both (I got B's in both at GCSE) and I enjoy them as much as eachother! I've heard that business is less valued and if so then I would opt for history - but I've heard many rumours about how 'boring' history is at a-level. Also - I saw a post on here discussing english lang/lit combined which said that it wasn't valued either as much as them both separately???? is this true???? HELP!! p.s do you think my a-level choices are suited to studying law at uni?

    History since it a facilitating subject, I would've done it but clashed with another subject of mine on my timetable at sixth form. I do business which is amazing, however since history is facilitating i'd say do that, but if you wanted to do law and do a law career to do with finance then business would be better, especially since you could then study business law.

    I would definitely suggest keeping History. It's a traditional, facilitating subject, therefore it is valued more highly than Business, which is not a facilitating subject. It would be much better to have one facilitating subject (i.e. History) than none (assuming the English you're referring to is Literature and Language combined, which is not considered to be facilitating)
