Soon I need to pick my GCSE options and I’m not too sure which ones will boost my chances of getting qualifications to become a lawyer. I would say i’m fairly intelligent- track 7-9 in most if not all of my subjects. I work hard and try to revise x3 a week, and i’ve never missed a homework! I love PSRE, so much! I’m good at history and geography however I’ve heard history is very content heavy and you have to remember lots and my memory isn’t very idealistic I think I would be prepared to revise double for subjects if it meant i had a higher chance of becoming a lawyer )

Prioritise - sciences, as it makes you a clever thinker
Maths & English too.

Sciences/maths/English - you need all 9s

Next are essay Subjects - to increase the habit of writing, history is a must, geo is good to, so is religious studies.

Finally I’d say a language is good, it’s a fun subject and easy 9 if you work at it,

The rest is ur choice, take further maths if u find maths easy, it’s a good intro into maths a level.
