    Also I'm 100% sure I'll get an A or B in every one of these most probably an A
    But are these choices good enough to study law in a good uni???

    The subjects you pick at GCSE don't really matter to universities what is more important are your A Level subjects you pick to study Law.

    Drama for law😄 Makes people chuckle- implying you need to learn to lie a little as a lawyer? Anyway
    They're fine- GCSE choices don't really matter because most subjects can still allow you to do an Alevel in them even if you haven't taken the GCSE in it such as history and geography

    As said above, your GCSE choices aren't too important. Saying that, you should probably look at taking a language as some universities (such as UCL) require this.

    For law you more need high results as opposed to anything specific, but drama, history, english, and anything else that'll help argumentative/speaking/presentation skills will benefit you. As someone else already said, languages are very useful to have as well for law. But don't stress too much with GCSEs few unis pay attention to them, they're more to get you into A-levels and provide some general basic knowledge than anything else.

    The subject you take at GCSE don't matter at all, it's the grades you get. Pick what you enjoy the most and what you think you'll be able to do well in

    These are absolutely fine; they leave the door open for you to do English, History etc which are highly regarded subjects for law.
