I've just started lower sixth (I started nearly 2 weeks ago) and I'm really disliking Religious Studies...

My subjects are RS, Bio, English, Latin

I'm interested in doing law or english lit at oxbridge/durham
(I got 9A*s, 2As in GCSES)

If I were to completely drop RS and just do 3 A levels would this effect my chances of getting onto either a law or english lit course at a top uni?

Thankss

Hi, I've just started college too and I'm looking to study Computer Science at Oxford. On their FAQs it says that 3 A-Levels are sufficient, here's the link if you want to read the full thing: https://uni-of-oxford.custhelp.com/a...RlB4Y3lpLW0%3D

is it not too late to switch from RS to another subject? i mean, surely term has just started so you wouldn't need to catch up on much
if you're considering english lit or law at uni then maybe something like history would be beneficial

I really didn't enjoy history at GCSE and I don't know what else I would take...

maths maybe? i dunno, i think it'll be beneficial for you to stick with 4 AS levels - not only because of the university application advantage (as I imagine most students will have 3 A levels + 1 AS at least) but also because it might help you figure out what you really enjoy? your GCSE grades are great so it's not like you're not capable of doing well!

Email your unis ASAP to double check, don't go by what's said here.
Also like others have said its not too late to change subjects, have you tried philosophy instead of RE?

Do you have Government & Politics offered in your college? It's a difficult course, but it might help you with law.

Sociology is also good, and is relatively easy imho. At least so far, I've only had Sixth Form for a week lol.

What do you dislike about RS?
