    I am currently in Year 12 and am studying maths,further maths, history and economics. If I were to drop history, would maths and further maths be considered as a weak combination for a law degree? I know some universities are happy to accept it- such as LSE, but I have seen in forums/heard that Cambridge and some others do not consider them as two subjects in an offer. Does anyone know any university in particular which does that?
    Much help is appreciated

    Hi, I think some unis would be ok with the subjects you offer, but others might not.
    I suggest that you don’t drop history as some unis are picky about the ‘Maths and further maths’ as a combo.
    Would you consider dropping further maths ? Or doing 4 A levels ?
    Double check anyway on the uni website if you have a rough idea of where uno you want to go

    Hello noel323,

    It does depend on the University. Some places only consider further maths as a fourth A-Level as its more of an extension, but Maths and Economics are definitely fine. However, some places may be fine with it, I’d recommend emailing Cambridge / whatever universities you’re interested in just to be sure.

    Maths, Economics and History would be a really strong combination, if you’d consider that? Essay based subjects (Eng Lit / History) Are generally considered the best prep for a Law degree.

    @Ruser22 @FloralHybird thank you! I might just drop further maths or carry on with all four instead since I wouldn't want to risk anything

    I had a very similar subject combo as you (took FM up to AS, Maths up to A2), and it didn't seem to hurt me, combination wise. Maths is actually a very common subject among successful law applicants (let me know if you want evidence for this).

    Yes, I was just worried about the further maths a level bit as one of the essential three subjects in a typical offer. Just wondering, are you studying law at a uni now? How are you finding it?
