Sorry but this doesn't actually make any sense. What exactly are you asking here?

I was told that taking Music, Drama and Geography was good and desired by uni's to take a Law Degree, I was wondering if anyone knew why they were desired?

I think you have got the wrong end of the stick. Music, Drama and Geography are not particularly good and desired subjects for a Law degree although they are accepted A levels at most unis.

No particular subjects are required for a Law degree, (although some like at least one essay writing subject & some unis like LSE & Sheffield don't list Drama on their list of acceptable A levels) which is why almost any will be considered acceptable.

So although your subjects are ok, they are not the best combination you could have chosen.

Universities have a list of preferred subjects that they accept and consider to have sufficient academic content. Geography and Music are on the lists of UCL, Birmingham and Sheffield. Drama appears to be on all but under Drama and Theatre studies at Sheffield. Universities require 2 subjects from their list and the 3rd can be any subjects other than critical thinking or general studies. The reason these subjects are acceptable is that the universities consider them to be seriously academic with I assume written papers in addition to practical exams.
