Hi guys, i was wondering if I could get some help. I'm in year 11 right now and we have to start considering our a level options and i was thinking of doing: math, spanish, economics and psychology. However, psychology and Spanish aren't set in stone yet though.

I want to do either Law (main) or Business/Economics (backup) as a career choice and I'm aiming for OXBRIDGE and LSE.

I don't want to seem like im taking 'soft' subjects but I really like the idea of doing psychology and Spanish for a level.

Any help on what OXBRIDGE and top universities look for and what a levels i should take??

If you want to do a degree in law, it doesn’t matter what a levels you do as you get high grades so I would focus on business/economics degree. Plus you can always do that degree then do a conversion later. Btw essay subjects will help you for uni later but it’s not a requirement.

Although obviously your right to consider Uni choices/career paths when thinking about your A-levels there is also the not so small matter of what you enjoy.

If you settle on subjects that you enjoy, then you are so much more likely to stick with them, work hard and get the grades you need. Just make sure you are keeping in mind your own interest!

If you want to study economics your gonna want to do a level maths, without maths you can only really do a BA in economics whereas a BSc is what you want to get if your doing economics
