Hi guys I was wondering what sixth forms around Surrey/ near croydon have the a levels of English, politics and sociology I have found 2 so far and want to have more so my options are open I have searched up quite a few places but some either won’t offer combined English, politics or sociology.

Even if they do check that it's a possible combination to choose - if (e.g.) they only only have one group each of Politics and Sociology and they timetable them at the same time then you couldn't pick both.

I'd ask them before you make a final choice.

Yes I will keep that in mind but I just can’t find many nearby or a little away that offer these other than 2 sixth forms and I’ve searched up quite a lot and some don’t offer 1-2 of them together

I’ve looked at the ones you mentioned and a few Harris schools like the beckenham, Crystal Palace and ivectus offer the combination I want but I haven’t checked all yet. If anyone knows is English literature or language on its own better for a level law?

Yeah everywhere I have checked does not want no entry requirements for law I have checked quite a few like Bristol, Leeds, Manchester, Cambridge, London school of economics and many more and since I didn’t do history in gcse as I found it quite boring I didn’t know if I would find it hard in sixth form to catch up etc

I haven't checked any History syllabuses recently, but certainly when I was in school (admittedly quite a while ago) you studied different events and time periods in History at GCSE compared to A-Level. If that's still right you wouldn't need to "catch up". But irrespective you should do subjects that you find interesting and/or that you will get good marks in. The subjects that you do at A-Level on the way to studying law and becoming a barrister (or solicitor) largely don't matter, but your grades certainly do matter. Doing one or two essay subjects is a good idea because they will help you develop skills that will be useful to you when studying law, but the main consideration is getting good grades.

Okay thank you I will take that in mind I haven’t studies before sociology or politics and when I read upon what they were based on and watched clips on them from a few sixth form pages I found them very interesting and intriguing so I think I will enjoy them overall and with English currently I’m really enjoying it I used to really dislike it and find it boring but towards the end of last year in year 9 -2019 I started to really enjoy it as I was contributing more and working harder.

I guess Politics history and englit or psychology if u rlly don’t like history maybe take it as an AS 🤷🏿*♀️ or take the other three subs and do an epq based on history but a moment that u find interesting so I will actually want to do it
