    I am doing my GCSE's now and thinking about which A levels would be best if I want to be a lawyer? I'm not sure how much A levels I'm going to do but the GCSE's I'm doing are: English, the 3 sciences, Welsh, Maths, History, Religious Studies and Drama. My sixth form also offers subjects that weren't available at GCSE such as politics and psychology. Whar would you recommend I do? ( obviously I'll be taking into account my grades and what subjects I'll enjoy.

    There are no 'specific' entry requirements for Law at most universites, however they may prefer at least one essay-based subject, such as English Lit/Lang, Psychology, History etc.

    The other 2 (or 3 depending on if you're taking 3/4 A Levels) should be subjects that you know you'll enjoy studying and will do well in.

    I'm taking Psychology, English Literature and Geography and I also aim to study Law.
