Law or Social Science. I was hoping to take A-Level Law or History, A-Level Psychology and A-Level English Lit at sixth form.

Short answer, yes.
A Levels matter a whole lot more than GCSEs ever will.

Was wondering the same thing unless they are from Wales but they'd have to do welsh GCSE's. Possibly the teachers telling the students what they got?

In law GCSE's aren't mattered that much.

Russels group its mainly required to have at least grade 6 in English and maths BUT, in law that isn't the issue. not sure about social sciences however, you can always check the entry requirements at the uni you wish to go to.

As just one example - all Unis will be different - for Law at Bristol, all applications are assessed with this ratio - 40% predicted A level grades, 40% LNAT score, 20% GCSE. So, whilst your GCSEs are counted, its a very small %.

The only thing you ever need to check with GCSEs is that there are not specific subject grades - typically English Language and Maths.
