Hello,
I am currently in year 11 and I will be doing A Levels next year however, I wasn't really sure about the combination. For higher education I would like to do Law in uni. The A Levels I would like to do is History, German, Psychology and Law. I know isn't really a preferred subject however, I think it will provide me with a knowledge before Uni and if I don't think its suitable for me I can study something else I like in uni. Also do you think I have to do English literature I thought history may be able to replace it as it is still essay based.

There is no requirement to do English Literature and those A levels sound fine. The only way of making them any better would be to ditch Psychology or Law in favour of Maths, but they are fine as they are.

History is the subject usually recommended. The only university that has Law on it's list of "non preferred" subjects is LSE...who have Psychology (and German and History) as preferred (and discourage maths/science options http://www.lse.ac.uk/study/undergrad...17/law.aspx#Q1 ). Every other university with a list of preferred subjects includes all of your choices.

The problem with Law A level is that there's a tendency for applicants to give an impression of "knowing it all" in their PS (and noone wants to teach a knowitall). Just make sure you do your research on top of your A level curriculum and understand what the difference is between A level and an LLB (in terms of content/work etc) and you'll be absolutely fine :yes:

Not sure where in that link it says that LSE discourages Maths and Sciences - it recommends traditional subjects (of which Maths and Sciences are some) and just says that if the majority of your subjects are Maths and Sciences then you will need to provide evidence that you have a high level of literacy. Maths A level seems very positively received for Law applicants and we've had several students go to top Law universities with Maths, Further Maths, a Science and another A level - e.g. French/German/History,

Fundamentally, however, I think we agree. The OP's choices are fine.
