    On there website it says A*AA with no specific subject requirements. However if it was me I would probably choose two essay based subjects like English and History. I would then go for a language or if your sixth form offers it a subject like law or politics and finish with a subject I enjoyed at GCSE's

    Thanks I was thinking about English and History but don't study a language and through my research thus far I've discovered that law is not a desirable A-level even for law so am considering Maths, Economics, Politics and a few others for my other options thanks for your help.

    Depends on whether your college offers you 3 or 4 subjects.

    I'd pick History, English and Maths, personally.

    Why don't you take the most blatantly obvious options that relate to a Law degree?

    English
    History
    Government & Politics OR Economics

    I mean I appreciate that, but is there honestly anything else you could take? It's extremely obvious.... You'd obviously be doing essay based subjects or languages for a Law degree, just like you'd be doing mathematical subjects for a Physics degree.

    According to "Which? University", the three most common subjects studied by Cambridge Law Students are Maths, History, and English Literature. They are by no means required though and you should really be studying A-levels that you can get a good grade in whilst also enjoying them.
