hiya guys,
i’ve heard a relentless number of times not to do alevel law if you want to do it at uni. many people have told me this but i really don’t know the reason for this can someone please explain!! i feel as though alevel law is something i would enjoy

also in order to do cooperate law would alevel business be a good choice (for reference im planning to do law, politics and sociology).

Hi! My friends who do law a level absolutely love it, although they have good teachers so that plays a part. I believe it is more of an easier, less 'important' a level, or rather it is viewed as that by some unis. However, if you think you enjoy it and do well, id say go for itidk what the link is between not doing it at a level if you want to do it at uni- i once heard someone say that its because the content taught at a level essentially is opposite than that of uni law, but i dont think thats right.

Business and your other a levels seem great for law and you also have options! Id say go for it

I made the mistake of taking an a level i didnt enjoy because it was seen as harder and more important, but i hated it, struggled and dropped out. Dont make the same mistake as me!
