    I’m planning on taking A Level Maths, Psychology and Law, and I’m just wondering whether or not these subjects will be “looked down” on and what uni degrees r open for me? Thanks!

    You can do almost any degree with those combinations: Maths, Engineering, Psychology, Law.. (excluding medicine, etc.) It all depends on what YOU want to study. A good rule of thumb would be to take atleast 1-2 facilitating subjects (look that up!) and you definitely meet that criteria!

    Law and Psychology can be seen as 'softer' humanities but Maths is really well considered and if you get good grades then you'll be fine. You could get into Psychology (non-biological), Law (you'll have a head-start since the A-level is not necessary but will still have to take the Lnat for many unis), or anything maths-based. Hope this helps!

    But with engineering you need physics tho.. also I know maths is a facilitating subject but I don’t think psychology or law is... what should I do?

    NOPE! Not all Engineering courses/unis require Physics. Yes, those two are not facilitating subjects. As I previously mentioned, what do you want to study at uni?

    Psychology is a science, which is an extra bonus.

    Those A-Levels are fine.

    If those are the 3 subjects you enjoy and can do well at then they are perfect.

    Ok, so presumably you are doing GCSEs at the moment and are trying to finalise your A-level subject choices?

    What are you 3 most favourite subjects at the moment for GCSE?

    Why do you think you'd like to do Law and/or Psychology for A-level?

    After contacting a few unis i realised that you only need 2 facilitating subjects as mentioned prior. Definitely look into physics as if you enjoy maths, you will more than likely enjoy physics too

    My opinion is that if those are the three A levels that interest you most (and you've done significant research), then go for it!

    Note that engineering pretty much requires physics. Psychology is generally fine if you're doing maths and psychology. That's perfect for law and most humanities subjects!

    But yeah, unless you're really considering engineering/architecture (which often require physics), they look great! I don't think they'll be looked down, sound very respectable to me (and anyway what other people think is unimportant - only what you and unis think!)

    I want to do psychology because I honestly find it rly interesting (ik it sounds rly typical lol) but we face humans everyday, it’s great to actually think and understand why they think that way. Also, I think law is very real life and that not only am I learning and taking a good qualification but also I can use this knowledge and skill in real life.

    You don't need Psychology and Law to be a lawyer, what about taking Maths,Physics,Art?

    History and English Lit are really respected for Law, but people have got into law with just maths/science subjects.

    Maybe change law for something else but it's your shot to do what you want. REMEMBER there is nothing stopping you from doing law in your spare time by doing further reading etc.

    I was originally thinking about taking those subjects, but I’m more interested in psychology and law
