Hi guys. I want to apply to five Russell Group universities to study Law (including Cambridge). Is it worth my while doing an AS level in Critical Thinking? I am already studying four A levels (History, English Language and Literature (combined), Religious Studies and Sociology) plus an Extended Project Qualification.

No, it will not improve your application or chance of being made an offer.

Nope. I'd strongly consider if there's any point doing an EPQ as well.

Point taken about Critical Thinking.

An EPQ is valued by many universities though...

Not enough to justify hours of work just for a few lines in your personal statement. If it's truly valued, it would count towards the entry requirements, but in the vast majority of cases, it doesn't.

Don't bother doing Critical Thinking.
As for your EPQ, it depends on how confident you are that it'll be helpful. Try and make your topic something relevant to your degree choice (helps to write about it on your personal statement) but different from what you study. For example, I did my EPQ about the education system and talked about indoctrination (which linked to my previous history and psychology lessons, but was ALSO super relevant to talk about when applying for Education Studies).

Only do an EPQ if you can make the most out of it to be relevant for your degree options.

Yes that makes perfect sense. I want to study Law so I am linking my EPQ to the study of Law. I'm not quite sure what my topic is going to be yet but yes I will definitely link it to my degree course.

I won't bother with the Critical Thinking as all you guys seem to think it's a pretty bad idea. I'll just stick with my four subjects and an EPQ. Thank you everyone for all your help!
