im choosing between two sixth forms. one allows me to do 4 a levels, whilst the other allows 3 a levels plus EPQ. if i went to the first sixth form i would study law, english lit, psychology and drama. if i went to the second i would study english lit, psychology and history, as they dont do drama or law. i intend to go to university to study law after sixth form but ive been told it isnt essential to have it as an a level to do it. which sixth form should i go to? is an epq recognised? are these a levels appropriate for law?

Both have appropriate A-levels for law - usually one or two humanities subjects are recommended but other than that there are no specific requirements.

I would not recommend doing 4 A levels - 3 and an EPQ is alright but 4 is too much (remember - AAA is always better than ABBB).

Do not just do history if you don't actually like it, you will literally hate your life (speaking from experience).

To answer your question it would all have to be up to you! But I am taking 3 A levels plus an EPQ and found when applying to top uni’s the EPQ grade I received (A*) didn’t give me any advantage. But personally I would take that over 4 A levels any day I too wish to go into law and any subject combo should work as long as you take two essay based subjects. But what I would 100% recommended is taking subjects that you love rather than what you think will look good to a Uni trust me you will do so much better!!

I did 3 A levels and an EPQ while a lot of my friends did 4 A levels
Although all of these friends did better than me at GCSE, because they had a whole extra subject to focus on, their results at A level were a lot lower
I found researching my own chosen topic more interesting than I think another subject would be and I have been able to use my EPQ as inspiration for essays at university so would recommend EPQ over a fourth A level
