So it was recently brought to my attention about facilitating options and how these are required to get into a good university however I don't like any and can't imagine myself studying them. My grandparents say I should just study one anyways but I'm pretty sure if I study something I don't like I won't get a decent grade. I'm not 100% sure what I want to do at uni but it'll probably be something to do with either tv/ and production or law (likely criminology). While I don't know exactly what uni I want to go to I've been looking at Leeds which I really like the look of, but if I don't have one of these facilitating subjects will it be unlikely for me to be accepted? Should I listen to grandparents and just take one even if I don't like it?

If you're set on a university course - just choose subjects relevant to that course. Really the main reason to fuss about facilitating subjects is if you're unsure as to what subject you're going to pick. Not really familiar with the entry requirements for Law but I'd expect a subject like english/history/etc. to be preferable.

'Good' universities do not require facilitating subjects, it's just one of those rumours that seems to spread like wildfire on this forum. Facilitating subjects e.g Biology, English Literature etc are good if you have no clue what you want to study after A levels. Pick the subjects the degrees specify are needed for entry requirements and make sure you also double check university specific requirements and if you do that you can't go wrong.
