I'm aiming for top grades at 6th form, and at the moment, I am aiming to do Law at University. Hopefully a top university. I've currently chosen:

History
Geography
Law
Physics

I was debating between physics or biology but I thought that science might not be useful for my path, despite it opening options.

I'm usually better at the more essay-based subjects and tend to struggle with maths, but what do you reckon would be good to replace with physics: economics or government & politics? Or something else? I feel like this may be the subject I drop for AS level.

Based on universities opinions and the content, what would you suggest?

Also, I'm unsure about what board it is with, but this is what is mentioned:

Government & Politics:
Unit 1 - People and Politics, participation and democracy

Unit 2 - Governing the UK, the effectiveness of Political institutions

Economics:
Unit 1 - Introduction to markets and market failure

Unit 2 - The UK economy - performance and policies

Government and politics would be better if you want to do law at university, I'm in A2 and I do History, Law and Politics.
