    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!
    I would recommend taking a subject like history instead of law at A levels. It is probably more well 'respected' by universities and more of a traditional subject. It will definitely not affect your chances of getting into law if you change law with history. Psychology is also sort of a softer subject but it is still respectable. With Maths, Psychology and History you can get into :
    - Politics
    - Law
    - Many other pathways as many courses do not require specific subjects. You should research the courses and see the entry requirements for them.

    Then stay with what you've selected. They are absolutely fine.

    Unis won't care but TSR will always expect only maths based subjects.

    Honestly, universities don't really seem to care what subjects you do. It's more about what you achieve. Obviously for Engineering you'll need Maths / Physics to help with access to that course. However, don't get too hung up on the idea that you shouldn't take certain subjects because they may be deemed as "softer". That was a massive mistake I made when I was in college!

    sorry, I didn't mean that you can only go into politics, it was just a suggestion. You can swap law with any other respectable social science. The most respectable subjects are probably the actual sciences and further maths. So if you would really like to stand out then try one of them, by they will be tough and require hardwork.
