I want to go on to study Law at university but I don’t know whether to pick Law or criminology.
Law at most unis don’t have any subject requirements. Many people say A-level law is boring and that criminology is very interesting and enjoyable. Can’t decideeeee

TBH you don’t need either law or criminology to do Law at uni. The very best unis eg. Russell group unis will want you to do a much more well regarded subject such as English lit or history.

These subjects have transferable skills such as careful analysis which u can apply to a law degree.

Choose whatever interest you but look at the course content and how the exam is structured. However, you dont need law or criminology if youre doing it to help you when you do your law degree because it doesnt give you more help than other a levels, which will give you skills applicable in the future. I dont think criminology is an a-level tho

I agree with what @proudmonkey has to say. For Law at my 6th form people studied Economics, History, English-Lit, Geography or even sciences and Maths. I would advise you take atleast one essay subject and choose wisely on the 2 or 3 subjects you want to do.

Law A-Level is fine. I do it and I think it’s very interesting, particularly Year 2 stuff. Criminology I don’t think is an actual A-Level.

So OP is basically facing a choice between doing 3 A-levels or doing 2 A-levels plus whatever Criminology is counted as. I know what I'd pick...

Law would be better than Criminology as not all Unis accept Criminology

Anything that isn't visual/creative art, drama or photography (If you are really interested in one of these kinds of subjects and know you can get a great grade then probably take a maximum of 1).

I know that unis have no problem with applicants who take only maths and hard sciences but I would highly, highly advise one essay-based subject to get you into the rhythm of making structured, cohesive arguments. I took History and Law and can confirm they did me a world of good.
