You can go into law? Law doesn’t require certain alevels but I think u need at least one essay based subject. You also have a facilitating subject which will help you

Anything which doesn't have specific requirements.
Anything whose only requirement is "an essay subject".
Anything whose only requirement is "a science subject".
Anything whose only requirement is Art.

You should be aware that most science degrees will need more than just "a science subject". In particular, you'll really struggle to find a physics course which doesn't also require maths.

A general list of facilitating subjects hasn't existed since 2019, though obviously some subjects are required or recommended for more courses than others. Physics and Eng Lit would both be on the required/recommended lists for a lot of courses, but there probably aren't any subjects that they are both on the list for. Art will be on the list for very few courses which aren't heavily art-based.

Basically the answer is that there will be hundreds of courses you can apply for, and also a large number that you can't. If you are worried that you might have ruled yourself out of something specific, check NOW instead of sticking your head in the sand and hoping that you will be so special that they'll ignore the requirements just for you - they won't.

Physics is fairly useless on its own - most Physics related degree course will want another science or Maths as well.
By dropping History you are leaving yourself with an odd selection - English, Art .... and Physics.

English Lit, Art and History - lots of choices, just have a look down this list of degrees from Sussex to give yourself some ideas : https://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/

Put your subjects in here. This will tell you what you can take. Without Maths you will find things like Engineering difficult to get into.
