    I'm hoping to study law in university in further education 😊. I'm predicted 7-8 (new gcse grades) in all the below, and I enjoy them all equally. What would be my best 4 options to take? Can anyone give their experiences on any of the subjects? Are any easier, harder or more respected than the others? Sorry if I'm cramming too many questions in one 😂.

    -French
    -History
    -Geography
    -Religous Studies
    -Music
    -Triple Science

    Great predicted grades! I can give you some info on the ones of those I studied:

    Triple Science- very glad I took this actually, enjoyed all the courses and now take chemistry and biology to a level!

    Geography- gcse is great and not too bad if you have a good memory and practise questions

    French- I did Spanish but I'm sure it's similar. My school made us take a language but I think a language is a good gcse to have but only take it if you really like it as I've heard the new gcse is a lot harder

    RS- was ok, again school made me take this. Wasn't my favourite subject nor my least favourite.

    Personally for GCSE just pick subjects you like as they are the ones you will do best in. Don't think law has any specific GCSE subject requirements except maths and English at certain grades so no need to worry at this stage about specific subjects. Good luck!

    Dump religious studies as it is completely unrelated to Law and I think universities aren't too amazed by it. But it is a really easy subject to handle and learn only grade boundaries are high as you can even use common sense in the exam.
    You might want to keep French as some universities require you to have a qualification in another languages and some just like students knowing another language.

    DO NOT CHOOSE MUSIC, WORST CHOICE YOU WILL EVER MAKE AS THE EXAM IS REALLY BORING AMD TOUGH BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO LEARN BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON 12 CLASSICAL SONGS FROM WHICH 2 WILL COME AS 10 MARK QUESTIONS. TRUST ME ITS USELESS DO NOT CHOOSE IT!!!!

    Hi!

    Out of those subjects, I took French, History, RS (short course), Music and Triple Science (but I took the old GCSEs).

    I would definitely recommend taking Triple Science, as it leaves many options open for further education if you later decide against Law. I know many people at my school who wanted to take Law took History, but I think then it depends on what you enjoy. Also, the new Music spec is more interesting than what mine was (this is for Edexcel), but only take music if you find it interesting.

    I found French easy, but I understand that the new spec is harder. I would also say that taking one language and one humanities subject is best for leaving all uni options open

    Hey there,
    I've read everyone else's answers here (since I didn't do A-Levels hahahahaha), so I've going to offer something a little different in regards to mind-set. Instead of asking about which subjects to do in regards to difficulty and so on, why don't you ask yourself which subjects are going to get you where you want to go in life? For me, I would be looking at the long-term game, which of those subjects are going to get me where I want to be and which ones will require more effort from me in order to achieve it. If there's a subject within those options that doesn't really matter to the future (employment or entrepreneurship for example) then personally I wouldn't do it, but obviously this all depends on you and what you want. I hope that puts a different slant on it and helps bud. Good luck!

    I'd definetly go with Triple Science, French and History. These will be amazing subjects for law and hopefully will equip you with all the essential skills to study it. Then I'd say your fourth choice is up to you. Bear in mind that Geography is facilitating while RS and Music aren't, but they are all well regarded and will be looked upon favourably. To be honest, you could put those options into a random generator and whichever combination it came up with would be fine as those are wonderful subjects. At the end of the day, just pick what you love Good luck and I hope this has helped.
