    Well you could study any of your A levels so:

    1. Business
    2. History
    3. Modern Languages/French (you might need more than one language depending on the uni)

    You could also do something such as Law where you don't need specific subjects.

    4. Law

    Not that you probably haven’t thought of this but what are your interests? And by interests I mean things that you would enjoy doing as a career etc.

    What you study at degree level won’t necessarily set your future career in stone; you can still enter most fields of work with any degree.

    If you’re going to be doing a degree you’d have to enjoy it. Business studies/management etc would generally be a good choice with your a levels.

    Of course you could go into teaching with either of your subjects do consider that as well.

    There’s also Law, as well as numerous other degrees that aren’t subject specific. I do think you really need to know the direction you’re going in first since with your subjects you can still do the majority of degrees, ranging from media studies to psychology

    I think I may go for law but I am well aware of how competitive it is, not only to study at uni but especially to find careers in!! Will I benefit from starting various work placements now?? How will each of my subjects help in this field??

    Everyone I know that is applying for law did work experience for it in year 12, so it probably is a good idea to get it done as soon as you can.

    As far as I’m aware, History will help with analytical skills and especially essay writing and is supposedly a good degree (like English literature) for Law and is a common A level unis tend to prefer

    I’m not sure how business studies would help, but French would certainly add an edge to your application since languages are generally seen as great degrees for any subjects.

    If you haven’t yet, start looking at Law degree courses at different universities as well as their entry requirements so you can see a clear picture of what you will be doing in the degree, I’d recommend the same when looking at any course. I started looking at courses in year 11 and wasn’t definite in which course I wanted to do until now (Year 13)

    Hope this helps
