    No specific A levels for Law.

    Sociology, Social care, Psychology, Law, Govt and politics probably good for Social work.

    Check entrance requirements plus ID subjects you are good at an can get the best grades for.

    History is pretty good for Law.

    Thank you
    I would definitely do either sociology or social care and then any two others, then that would be ok for either.

    I would suggest Sociology over Heath & Social Care if you want to keep Law an option broadly - Law degrees are necessarily academic, and for admissions to the subject, they want to see you excel in an academic environment. Social Work programmes aren't explicitly academic but will be happy to accept applicants from academic backgrounds.

    Following a traditional academic A-level curriculum and doing some volunteering or perhaps work experience in some form of social care would be excellent preparation for either/both. If you are good at and enjoy History, you may want to cast some additional consideration to this if you wish to keep the "top" courses in your sights, as while not required it's viewed quite favourably as preparation for Law and similar subjects by LSE etc. It's not necessary of course, but if you are good at/enjoy it, it's a good pick. However of course if you feel you won't be able to get an A/B in it it but can in one of the other subjects, stick with those ones
