    Hi, I am currently studying at college and my aim is to study law or history at a good, oxbridge university. I'm predicted an A* in sociology. I also have taken History and English lit, both I'm expected to get As in and both are seen as good A-levels to have, especially if i get the grades predicted. I was wondering if having sociology would hinder me in getting in a good oxbridge uni either to study law or history?

    Not at all. It is a very acceptable subject.

    Good Oxbridge uni?

    Oxbridge = the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge

    Two universities... not multiple universities.

    Of course they are both good. They are 1st and 2nd in the country.

    Probably yes. I doubt you would get into Oxbridge with that grammar though.
