    My parents want me to do a level maths but I really hate the subject

    I want to do law at uni

    My current choices are politics,philosophy, economics and sociology at College A

    Or politics, classical civilization and economics at college B

    I haven't decided which sixth form to go to. Should I do it? I'm predicted an A/A* at GCSE

    As unfair as it sounds, I would suggest taking three 'hard' subjects as opposed to two, particularly as you want to go down the route of law. If that is maths then maybe it is for the best. Personally my parents tried to force me to take maths for A Level but I knew I wanted to do Classics so I did not listen, however I took 4 'hard subjects'. If there is another 'hard subject' you enjoy more than maths then I would suggest picking that up and replacing either sociology or psychology! Again I know that these 'soft subjects are extremely difficult but especially if you are aiming for Russell Group universities, it might be trickier to get in for law
