Hey so I'm currently in year 11 and soon we will be asked to decide our a level options. I would like to go on to study law preferably at Durham but any Russell group would be fine and I'm a bit stuck regarding options.
At first I was set on doing English lit, history business studies and something else like geography but I thought that with the new changes to as it might be better to do only 3 and get better grades
Recently Ive been conflicted with English lit as I get As in it but have to work really hard to get them. I've also decided I really want to take government and politics as I find politics so interesting
So I'm unsure between business studies and English. I'm much better at business studies and have never gotten below an A* in it and English I have to work to get an A in so I don't know.
Opinions please ❤️
A level options for law! Help please! Watch

https://www.oxford-royale.co.uk/arti...-a-levels.html - This article might be quite useful. English Lit is more highly regarded A-level than Business Studies, and in my opinion, it would be better to choose English Lit, which might be more challenging, and get a slightly lower grade than to do Business Studies. Especially in RG unis, they will be looking for facilitating subjects such as English Lit, History, Languages etc. Hope this is some help!

Ones you will get the three best grades in.
Check with Durham if they have any specific preferences. If you do two facilitating subjects and English is a problem third, then do something else. Geography would be fine. Generally there are no specific subjects and the best 3 grades are what counts.
RG tend to like more traditional and facilitating subjects at least two of them.
