    I picked history, sociology, philosophy & ethics and eng lit for a level.
    I’m really interested in doing eng lit for a level but if I don’t get a 7 at GCSE I’m not gonna do it. I also have done paper 1 and that didn’t go as well as I had hoped (MACBETH!!!!!) so I think I’m gonna change to economics instead.
    The question I was wondering was do I have to take eng lit in order for unis to accept me to study law? I’ve heard eng lit is really important for people who want to study law.

    Don't go by what you hear. Look up uni entry requirements. I don't think there are any subject specific ones.

    There are people who are readily accepted to law with a full set of science and maths subjects, so that necessarily disproves your belief that it is "really important".

    I am not aware of any Law courses that have any specific subject requirements - the only (implicit) "requirement" I'm aware of is to take traditionally academic subjects i.e. those primarily assessed by final written examination in common with the assessment methods of a Law degree. All of your proposed subjects qualify in this regard, so I see no particular problem.

    There are no subject requirements for Law. Universities like an essay subject and History covers you. You only need 3 subjects why take more. Economics might prove useful as it is an analytical subject which might prove useful for some universities in addition to your essay subjects
