    Alright so, I wanted to know what 3 subjects i would need to study at A levels to go into Criminology and what grades i would need in said subjects. I also want to know the average salary per year and just how tiring it is (how many hours would i have to work a day or a week etc)

    I also just want to say that currently, i'm getting A/A*s in:
    - History
    - Religion
    - Urdu (language)

    I'm getting A/Bs in:
    - English language
    - Got a B in my English Literature GCSE
    - Psychology

    I'm getting B/Cs in:
    - Maths (I'm doing foundation right now and getting grade Cs/5s, I'm gonna do the higher one for GCSE and i think i may be able to get a high B at least)
    - Science (I get some Bs here and there but mostly it's Cs)

    Out of the 3 science, i find Chemistry the easiest, i despise physics and biology is 'okay'.


    Please reply asap!! thanks

    Hi, I found this online that might help:
    https://www.whatuni.com/advice/subje...t-guide/50047/

    Suggests that psychology and sociology might be useful, but that there are no specific a level requirements (although I would check with any specific universities you are thinking of applying to, as well as asking head of sixth form/careers at your school).

    Hope this helps

    It's actually really helpful thanks, but i'm currently in high school, i only chose psychology, history and urdu as my subjects so i don't study sociology and don't you need 3 subjects to study something at A levels? that's only 2, well 1 since i don't do sociology. Do you have any idea of what other subjects i could choose?

    Personally, I would suggest either:
    History, psychology and English language
    History, psychology and religion
    History, psychology and Urdo

    History since it is a facilitating subject, psychology as it is recommended for criminology, English as it is also a facilitating subject (however, if you feel you would do better in one of the other subjects I would take one of those), and then religion and Urdo because you achieve highly in them

    Don't worry about not studying Sociology, it's only a suggestion, and a lot of schools do not offer it anyway so it won't be a required subject.

    Good luck with choosing!!

    I'll say either psychology, sociology and criminology (only a diploma offered at some colleges)
    Or psychology, sociology and law

    I had no intent of doing criminology when I went into college so I ended up choosing history, lit and politics, and now I have all 5 offers so I guess it doesn't really matter what you do. just get good grades
