    Hi, at the moment Im considering a law degree at uni and just checking the A-levels I have chosen are good enough. I haven't chosen law at A-level because i was told i don't need it by me career advisor and uni I would wish to attend. Plus i still want to leave my options open because I'm not 100% sure yet. however should i want to do law, are these A-levels good enough?
    English
    History
    Sociology/business/psychology
    At the moment i am undecided on the 3rd, which one do you think is the best or would you recommend another one?
    thanks

    You might want to do a science or a maths, just to make it more academic / rigorous.

    Depends which University you are applying for. Most RG will require 4 (which I think you meant when you said you're undecided on the 3rd). History and English are fine choices, as for your 4th choice I would recommend something not too taxing that you could get the highest grade possible in. Perhaps English Language wouldn't be too demanding?

    Really, anything goes. I got an offer to study at KCL for law with History, German and Economics, and the one thing that's good about law is that you don't have to do any specific A-levels to do it at uni - but they don't really like people doing A-level law.

    You definitely don't need a science or maths to show 'academic / rigorous', that's just nonsense. I know someone doing law at Cambridge who did Spanish, French and Latin at A-level, because they loved languages. Choose subjects you will enjoy and you can do well in.

    Edit: not hating on maths/science, but you should only do them if you really enjoy them, not because you think a university wants it!
