I think it will be hard to do 4 'big' A-levels if you get what I mean. Maybe do 3 A-levels and another 'easier' A-level. If you want to study law I think psychology would be a better option than geography. Hope this helps

Just to add that there is actually zero need to do four A levels anyway. Your offer will be based on three, and an extra one confers absolutely no advantage in terms of admission. Much better to do three outstandingly than four excellently.

I take History (almost took DT instead of History due to scheduling issues), Physics and Maths and I didnt chose them because I wanted to study law but because I enjoyed these subjects. Do yourself a favour and only do 3 because universities dont care what A levels you do (at least for English and Welsh law; if you wanted to do Scottish Law, you'll be fine as you have one essay subject). I only recommend doing 4 A levels if you genuinely enjoyed them. If you are thinking of German, check out course such as Law with German or Law with languages and see if its something you want to do because they require an MFL A level; if you dont like those courses and just want to study pure law or something else like PPL, then I suggest maybe doing it in your free time because learning languages in your own time is stress free and you can ask your teachers for some challenging content if you want some more but I wouldn't suggest it taking it unless you are prepared for it

I’m taking double maths, history and economics, to maybe go do a PPE degree and convert to law, or go straight into economics, but I guess as long as I have history, the essay subject isn’t a problem, so I took the subjects that opened up another career for me? Law has no real prerequisites, especially if you’re going to do a conversion instead. I heard that almost 80% of the intake at the Silver Circle don’t come from a law degree, so there’s always that route in!

And with the SQE test, it will be easier for future graduates as well

Totally go for German. Btw you dont need English or History A level for Law so dont feel obliged to take it but totally go for it if you enjoy them (just wanted to give ya a heads up because there is a common misconception you need to take it for law). Good luck for year 12 :rave:

I did German, English and History ( a long time ago and I read law at university). Those would be a good combination for law. However as long as they are reasonably mainstream subjects such as maths, physics etc any are fine. If you are going to Oxbridge and might get 4 x A* I would not put people off doing four good subjects but do not do 4 if you think it will pull down your other grades. None of my children did four (other than 4 AS levels) and two of them so far are lawyers.

Oh that’s great! I’m thinking of starting off with four subjects (probably English, History, Geography and German - I really enjoyed all of them at GCSE) and then if it gets too much, I’ll drop my least favourite
