    After thinking over this for a long time I am now studying these subjects in the 6th form:

    Art
    English Literature
    German
    History

    Does that look good? Obviously I enjoy all of them greatly, but would Unis respect these? I'm considering Law, Journalism, or anything similar at Uni so will the above be useful in that respect?

    As there are generally no set subjects (more useful ones) for law, then they look fine.

    I don't think there are any specific subjects for Law - but they do recommend English and History is said to be useful for it; and a language is highly valued.

    Waaayy back when I was an ickle year 10, the school had a careers fair and since I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I looked at the law stand. They said history is useful, as it teaches you analytical skills. They also liked English, but said there are no set subjects. I have a friend who is going to study law this year and she did History, French, Business Studies at A2 and Russian AS - she didn't have any problems cos she didn't have English.

    You can take History at a-level having not even done it at GCSE according to my school. However, there are no subject requirements for law so I wouldn't worry about having taken Business Studies, after all this subject teahces you the logic and analysis you need for Law.

    Apparently at Cambridge they encourage you to look at law in france as well - so french would be a great subject to take for it!

    They don't make you - but they suggest it as a way to extend your studies:

    "Although the greater part of our course, naturally, is concerned with English law, you will have the opportunity to study other legal systems, including civil law, the law of the European Union, and international law. A number of our students also spend time studying in a European university and a chosen few can even gain a French Master's degree from the University of Paris II as well as a Cambridge BA."

    There seems to evidently be an emphasis on European law - so languages would certainly be of some value.

    As for what subjects you need the Cambridge site simply says:

    "It doesn't matter whether you have a background in the arts, or in the sciences, or a mix of the two. What you will need is a genuine interest in the law and sufficient motivation to study this tough intellectual discipline."

    I'm 100% sure you will get into the 6th form with such grades - and should you continue to work as hard as you evidently are you'll no doubt get into a Law Degree with ease.
