    So, I’m currently in year 11, and as the sixthform I’ll be attending doesn’t offer law as an alevel subject, I’ll be doing:

    Sociology

    Psychology

    Economics

    Do you think these are good choices to go on and do law at university?

    English Literature or Language would have been a good choice, as well as History. Any other humanities subject, like Geography, could have been a good choice. You just need to relate and convey that you have gained skills in the subjects that could be applied to lie.
    Doing A-Level Law wouldn't have a good choice, as many universities don't see it as a good A-Level choice.
    I would have chosen English Language, Economics, Geography (and Sociology if I was able to chose 4).

    I get the English Language choice - but why would you do Geography for law? You don’t even touch up on law in Geography?

    The whole law A-Level thing is a bit of a myth. It would have put you at no disadvantage nor advantage. To be honest, it's probably a better choice than English Lang,Geography,Economics.

    I would suggest doing English Lit or History. I would definitely pick subjects more on the essay side of things.

    You learn a lot about Human Geography, and human rights. It can be applied to law (especially law that is governed across unions like the EU). It it isn't necessary to chose Geography, just pick the ones that you will enjoy. If you enjoy them, you will do well in them.

    Aah I see what you mean now, thanks! However, I do really enjoy and look forward to Sociology, Psychology and Economics!

    If you enjoy them, then chose them. I can't stress this enough because a lot of people chose subjects that will get them specific university course they want. If you do subjects that you have no interest in them, you'll fail (from personal experience).
