    Make sure you check the entry requirement for universities subject wise. Take a look at some of the best universities for criminology, a couple of Russel group ones, even if you think you probably would never go to them. You don't want to set your heart on a university and then find you don't have the one required subject.

    If there are no specific subject requirements, then I would choose whichever you think is most interesting. If you think law will be most interesting, pick that one. You could also email Leeds and ask the admissions staff which subjects are most recomended/popular.

    Okay, its just I obviously feel law would be beneficial, however many people have said it isn't very necessary and the exams are based on memory and I feel I wouldnt particularly enjoy it. But thankyou for your advice

    Psychology, biology and sociology are the three subjects that most spring to mind when I think of Criminology
