I want to study law at uni and I’m thinking of picking these A-level subjects: Art,Maths,Law and Psychology. But I’m worried it’s not the best option, so should I consider dropping one for either English or History in order to get into good universities?

They look fine - it's basically 3 respected A-levels and Art. Grades matter more.

they sound perfect 3 strong academic and one creative. The perfect mix. The Art can be therapeutic when you have Maths,.Law and Psychology...them 3 are a good combination as you have 2 dealing with logic and Psychology is science based but will also help with dealing with many areas in Law..'expert psychological reports and just reading about human behaviour will be an asset to a law firm. stick with them

There are no specific A level subject requirements for Law degrees. You just need high grades, so it’s best to pick three subjects where you feel confident of being able to get a top grade. But many people find an 'essay subject' useful, however, it’s not essential for applications.

I'm studying law mixed with something & i'm in my first year. i would say that Law and Psychology could not be anymore perfect. Have a look on the website of a uni you want to got to and look at the Ucas points; it'll help when picking subjects because you'll make sure to pick one you can enjoy as it will help when it comes to exams. If you find a subject boring then chances are that you won't be bothered to try your best x

Sorry I am not sure if you meant that I should consider picking something else instead of Psychology and law or you believe that they are perfect subjects?

I wanted to study Law in Uni too! And I was advised to take mostly essay-based subjects. I took Psychology, Geography, English Literature & General Paper. I actually chose Physics but they said it doesn't 'fit'. Don't know if my reply would be helpful so just take whatever you're interested in so you won't get stress out.

Do what you will enjoy most, so get the best grades in. Only an essay subject (multiple not required) is recommended, so you have a virtually free choice.

My only concern would be with doing four, unrelated subjects.
