    You should probably take Law, Politics, Economics and English language

    Well the obvious option is law, but it’s good to get a broad skill set instead of going full on law as well as to take something you really enjoy. Maybe law, a science, a language/humanity, and an art if you’re into art. All I’m saying is don’t go full humanities or full science because it gets really repetitive and it’s not very stimulating only studying writing-based or number based subjects all the time.

    I have an unconditional offer for Law at a prestigious uni for this September and I studied English Lit, French and Psychology. You should definitely aim to have two (what are seen as) "traditional" subjects, like English/History, A language perhaps a social science like Politics Sociology etc.

    Law is a totally fine A-Level to have - But it’s not necessary and in some cases not advised 😊

    To the OP - Essay based subjects such as English Lit and History are good options, but ultimately grades are all that is important. An A in Psychology is more useful to you than a C in English Lit, so take what subjects you think you’ll enjoy and excel in, there are no subject requirements for a law degree.

    A Level history, politics and economics/English would be great. Good combo! Studying law at A Levels would be useful but the content is quite repetitive at uni, so you may zone out or lose interest. But, ultimately it’s best if you choose the subjects you enjoy, if you enjoy law then by all means go for it. It’s better to get an A in something your good at and enjoy. Best of luck!
