I'm about to start year 12 and I have chosen to do business, biology and maths as well as the EPQ. I've heard that universities like applicants to have an essay based subject, but the university websites say there are no required or preferred A-levels.
Would universities (especially Russell Group) penalise me for not having subjects such as English or history?
A-levels for law? watch

no, that will be fine. maths is also good if you decide to do a different course when it comes to applying as a few courses have maths as a requirement.
you learn how to write in legal language on the course. if you do law, you will see that writing essays in history or english language is completely different. i didnt do any essay subjects at A level and that didnt affect me at all.

No. As you've stated, RG universities don't have s preference. If they don't prefer something, then they can't and won't penalise you for not having it.
With law, they care about academic rigour. Any essay or critical thinking skills can be illustrated by your EPQ, but also the LNAT which enables you to demonstrate both.
