I want to become a solicitor, and I have a particular interest in criminal law. However, I'm not entirely sold on doing an undergraduate law degree at uni because I've heard some off-putting stuff about it (the workload can be heavy, the environment can be toxic because of the law students who are c*nts etc.) so I'm considering other degrees I could do instead. I'd much prefer to just do the conversion course.

For context, I'm going to be starting year 12 next year, and I'll be doing English lit, history and biology. I get 7s, 8s and 9s in them (8s and 9s in English, and 7s and 8s in history and biology). Of the three of them, I'm more interested in English and history, because I had to take biology in place of a course that got cancelled. However, I'm going to be aiming for at least As and Bs.

Anyway, any ideas for degrees to consider? I don't have any specific university in mind, though I'd prefer it if the uni wasn't somewhere too rural. If you think that I should do law, please let me know about that too.

I think if you're not completely sure about Law, you should do whichever subject you are getting the best grades in at A level. English or History would be fine, no need to decide now.
