Hi, I study Biology, English Lit and Maths for A level. Whenever I tell people my options they are taken aback and some have even said to me how they do not link well. Have I made bad choices? Also, if yes, is my position at a top university threatened by these subjects?

Finally if I were to study law, would these options be a hindrance?

No, your a-levels are fine! Unless you want to go into medicine, you should be good. Law courses like English Lit, but the best thing would be to email admissions offices that you would be interested in going to, and asking them. The subject requirements are on most uni's websites.

I agree with the first responder, I think they're fine 😀
Also for law, English and maths are both very very good subjects for this (both show your ability to present, analyse, solve problems etc), and biology is good for law as well, shows intricate understanding and attention to detail in my opinion 😊
Also as the first responder also said, the majority of under grad degree subjects with specific subject are the likes of medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, and very specialist engineering I think so you should be OK for law

Thank you this is a great relief! Do you think candidates studying history will be prioritised over me?

Don’t worry about your Alevel choices being slightly different from the normal! I personally took maths, chemistry and drama and it hasn’t hindered me at all when applying to universities for medicinal chemistry! You do you!

What matters is that you enjoy your subjects, so will get the best grades that you're capable of. They're fine for Jurisprudence (Law) at Oxford - check your target universities for their guidance, but I would expect it to be the same.

I don't think they'd be prioritised over you at all 😊
