My school are considering offering classics as an A-level option. What are your thoughts on AQA classics? How does it look to a university and later employer? Also, if I was to take it, it would be alongside history and English literature (I am expected A* in my GCSE essay based subjects) so would that be enough variation? How would classics look for a law degree applicant? Thank you!

I take classical civilisations (it's OCR not AQA but they're similar enough) and I honestly love it. It's a great interdisciplinary A-Level because you do little bits of lots of other subjects which means that it's always interesting.

I do it alongside history and they work really well together (I would imagine it would work well with English too) I think classics is great for Law because so many of the laws come from Greek and Roman society and Latin is the language of Law.

If you were going to take it check what modules the school does because they do vary wildly and some will be more useful for law than others. Even if they aren't the most relevant they would still be useful due to the analytical skills and essay writing skills you would learn.
