There’s a lot of writing, especially if you have my teacher that reminds me to make notes up to every 2 mins then sometimes has a go at me after the lesson for not writing enough lol
And hundreds of cases to remember, which is easier than it sounds actually

Well I’m on my first year of college taking law, English and history. For me law is the most interesting subject and easiest to understand, but there is a lot to remember like cases and acts and a couple of different Latin words but it’s not as hard as it sounds. I think the hardest part is learning how to write a level answers and essays, but your teacher should go through that with you. I’m not sure about every college but I know that at my college we’re spending the first year learning all of the content and the second year practicing exam questions and revising so if your college is like that then it shouldn’t be too hard, and it isn’t true that it’s not a respected a level - a couple of years ago some unis didn’t like it but they don’t care now it just depends on the grade you get.

😂😂yeah it seems like a lot but it’s not really too much, we’ve got two teachers so we’ve done the law making bit and now we’re doing criminal law with one teacher and tort law with another which we’ve almost finished already, our college likes to move fast😂

You don't need to do Law for Criminology and as several people have pointed out, its actually a fairly dull subject with heaps of reading and essays. If you can do Sociology or even Politics instead you might find it more interesting and more relevant to Criminology.

To find out what Criminology is all about (ie. is it what you think it is, would you enjoy it?) then its worth looking at some University coueses now and even going to a relevant Uni Open Day in and listening their presentaions about the course - there will be lots coming up between now and June, and you don't have to be 'about to apply' to go.

You don't need to A level law at all. Unis like a level english literature.

The only top university that is slightly averse to A-level law is LSE, if I'm honest.

I'm in year 11 and I am picking my A-levels. I definitely want to take psychology and English Language however and I am trying to pick between Biology and Law.
To be honest I really don't want to take A-Level Biology but I don't know whether it would be a good idea just in case I change my mind. I am interested in Criminology but I'm aware there are very few jobs available compared to Law.
Please, can you tell me what the Law A-Level cause is like?
Id look on some unis websites to see if they specify any particular a-levels for their criminology courses.
That may help you decide.
