    Although I have achieved good A-Level grades this year and got into university for LLB, I would like to do an extra A-Level in economics (in two years) as I want to specialise in financial law once I become a solicitor. I will be living in London during uni. Could anyone please give me a hand and tell me of any good evening classes centres that are not to expensive and those who would preferably be an exam centre. I know that it would be a lot of work if I was to do it during an LLB course, but I'm sure that it would work out if I put in my best effort.
    Has anyone else done this before?

    I haven't done it before. But would you have time? Some timetables may mean you're not finishing until around 6 / 7pm, which means you wouldn't have time for an evening class.

    And then there's the workload. Would you really have time to do a full time degree and an A level?

    You could pick a finance/economics-related optional module instead. Doing an economics alevel while at uni is not very practical tbh..

    Really not a good idea, particularly as that'll cross over with your second year work which actually counts. Plenty of people do financial law without eco A level.
    Open units are the best plan, your uni may offer doing units from econ / finance courses like mine did.
    You could also join specific societies, and keep up with general current affairs.

    you'd be better off taking relevant modules, doing relevant work experience and perhaps reading some relevant books to show initial interest

    you're only going to waste time and put pressure on yourself unnecessarily, if you're short on time one or both of your qualifications will suffer and you may waste money doing a course which isn't important
