    If you want to be an ideal Law candidate you'll have to study: English Literature, History, some language like Spanish and then either Economics or a Science. You can study drama if you like though!

    Or if you're doing 5, then something like Economics or Geography.

    English Lit
    Language
    History/RS (History because Unis love it, RS is good for ethics if you want to go into human rights law etc and they both help your writing skills)
    Take Drama if you enjoy it by all means
    If you're good at Maths take that, it shows you're logical or maybe something like Economics
    Politics maybe?

    but languages and english and history maybe your best bet

    If you could do just Religious Studies that would probally be better than Philosophy because you would cover Ethics which would help you more with Law. Half the course would be about Philosophy though.

    Where are you thinking of applying anyway? Cambridge and LSE for instance have a list of A-levels that they generally prefer and those that they generally dislike.

    Lit. :yes:

    When it comes to your other choices take a peek on the UCAS website and look at various unis and what their requirements are for their Law courses!

    I think you can pretty much do anything except film studies, media, business studies and law (basically subjects they consider as 'soft' and still hold a good chance of getting in.

    I did psychology, sociology, english lit and lang and government and politics.

    and I have 4/5 offers already...

    so you don't necessarily need to do the science/maths/language options to look like an ideal candidate

    If you're applying to Cambridge, you may want to take a look at this.

    I think that depends what you got your best grades in, if you're best at things like Art, then it's a good choice. You're best to take what you're best at and enjoy I guess.

    Depends what you want to do - you would have been better to go for Lit over Language.
