are english literature, history and sociology good alevel choices for a future as a lawyer?

i think that i will succeed with these options as my teacher recommended that i choose english literature as a choice and i do enjoy it, i got an A in gcse history and i think that the subjects in the course are interesting and sociology is an interesting subject too.

however i want to know if others think that these options (specifically the sociology option which i’m worried about) will be the best options to become a lawyer in the future and get into a good university.

i’m also considering about taking government & politics so i would be doing english literature, history, sociology and government & politics.

would this be too overwhelming and make me have to drop one or get less grades in them all?

should i just take government & politics instead of sociology?

I have moved your thread to the A-Level forum. Hopefully, you will get more responses.

1. A Law degree does not require any specific subjects, so choose the subjects you enjoy and will get a decent grade in.
2. Do not take 4 A-Levels. Universities are only looking for 3 A-Levels, and AAA will always look better than AABB.

As someone said above, you don't need any specific A-levels and should choose what you enjoy and are good at. I've seen people be accepted for law with maybe only one essay subject and sciences.

I'm about to go into my second year and am studying history, maths and physics. I'm also applying for law! I've found that there is a big emphasis on your interest in law and in the summer you will probably be doing a lot to show this (e.g reading books). I originally started with Further Maths A-Level and found 4 subjects a bit overwhelming. By dropping further maths I could focus on my super curriculars and do an EPQ. This ofc could just be my own experience so take it with a grain of salt.
