It is fine. there are no specific subjects, but English and History are well suited. Just get the grades.

English literature and history are perfect for law. English language is also good, but i wouldnt do both english language and literature. Maybe pick something like geography, RS or sociology instead.

Well I would pick another subjects but I am not really good at the core subjects in general (especially maths and chemistry ) and I dont want to pick any "soft" subjects that's why i went with both english language and english literature

I recommend History, Sociology, Politics, or English Lit/Lang. Pick 3.

well I mean both sociology and politics sound very good and I've considered them I've heard that alot of the top universities don't prefer such subjects because they consider them soft or whatever

Top universities recommend you to do 2 facilitating a levels, and if your doing english literature and history, it doesn't matter about the third subject, as long as you can achieve a high grade in it. To sum it up, your choices are fine.
