    I'm currently in Y11 and need to pick my A levels in the next couple weeks.
    My mock results:
    English (grade 7)
    Maths (grade 6)
    Science (B)
    Additional science (C)
    History (B)
    Geography (B)
    Business (A)
    Psychology (A*)

    As you can see I could likely do any subject besides science at A levels. I was thinking of doing English combined, Maths, psychology and business. However I can't shake an unspoken desire to do A level Law. For years I've told people I want to eventually become a teacher but am now looking at other options. For some reason I feel drawn to law yet have no idea why or what I would do with it. Just want some honest opinions and objective perspective. Thank you.


    I took psychology and business and can tell you a bit about them. My school only allowed me to take 3 so I took them with PE. I suggest you take what you enjoy and are interested in. At A-Level you have to do a lot more than just do the homework and actually have to do some wider reading around the subject and be a little interested in doing it to get a good grade and to not hate the next 2 years of your life.

    So pick what you enjoy - perhaps someone on here that does law could help? I could ask a friend if you have any questions as she takes law?

    I did Chemistry, Biology and Psychology at A level and I would definitely recommend Psychology. I found it fairly easy (compared to my others) and pretty interesting to. I didn't take it at GCSE because it wasn't an option at my school, but I got an A* in A level, so I'd say you've already got a head start!
    If you're really interested in Law then go for it!
    Maybe Psychology, Business and Law?
