Hey all! I've realized I do honestly kind of want to study English Literature and found out I do have a real love for it, but at the same time I want to do Criminology or law as my third a level. What I'm wondering is that, which one is more practical in todays age? Although I want to peruse a career in media (I've already chose Media Studies), I want to do the same in the police force! I'm just a little overwhelmed so any insight would be fantastic

(Places like Cambridge and Oxford look down at Criminology as it's a diploma so, that also plays a part in my decision, I'm kind of juggling a few balls here).
Thank you!

As english lit as a facilitating subject it will keep your options open and make you seem a more competitive applicant especially at top unis. Have you decided on a second alevel or are you trying to choose two out of english lit, criminology and law since you have settled on media studies?

There isn't an A level in Criminology - its a WJAC Diploma and it isn't as high academic standard as an A level and many top Universities will not accept it.


Do Law.
