    Apparently History’s a good one but frankly it doesn’t really matter. Unis care more about A-levels

    GCSEs don’t really have a specific orientation towards areas that would help achievements in law.
    History would be good but it won’t aid an application or your understand on the topic.
    Unless you are offered advance vocational (like psychology, etc) then you are best just choosing the ones you believe you’ll enjoy the most.
    The more academic the better - I.e avoiding art-based subjects

    Whichever GCSEs you enjoy and will do well at. The "core" subjects plus whatever others you enjoy will meet the entry requirements for any university course.
