    Hello, I am currently applying to colleges and choosing my A Levels. I want to do English Literature and Sociology which I really enjoy doing at GCSE. But I need to do one more and I'm really stuck deciding between Philosophy and Law.

    Do any of you have experience with these subjects and recommend me doing them? I really like writing opposed to more practical work so maths and the sciences are a no go.

    Are they respected A Levels in the eyes of universities? I do want to go to university and hopefully one of the Russell group ones. At the moment I am thinking of going into teaching but I always change my mind.

    I need your advice on these subjects! Thank you

    It may be useful to make sure you study a subject that you might want to end up teaching. So if you're thinking of teaching secondary, either of those (or something like history or geography). But if you're thinking of primary, you might want to add a more mainstream subject.

    i do english, sociology and philosophy and i feel they combine really well but i can see that law would also be a good choice. personally philosophy is my favourite - it's a great debate subject, very interesting and my teachers are great, but on the other hand it's really ****ing difficult and i feel if my teachers weren't as great as they are i probably wouldn't enjoy it as much
