A levels to pick?

Hi I’m wondering which a levels to pick to give me the best change to study law at the best university possible
Atm I’m looking at doing history or biology, law and maths

Also I’m getting my results for GCSEs in august but haven’t got a great feeling about them and feel as though I’ve got 6s and 7s is this enough if I theoretically get 3A’s or A* to get into Oxford Cambridge or the university of law

Law generally does not have specific subjects for A Level.

Pick the A Levels your interested in.

There is no ‘best uni’. Different universities offer different module choices, you choose the law course that offers modules your interested in.

Listing Oxford, Cambridge, and then the University of Law as examples of the "best" universities is unusual. The University of Law is not generally regarded as a leading university. It gets a lot of business from people doing GDLs and professional courses. It's not really comparable with Russell Group Universities, and my experience of trying to mentor a graduate from the University of Law is that she had been badly taught and had very poor legal knowledge.

If your can get As or better at A level you will have a chance of a place at one of the Russell Group law schools, subject to other factors such as LNAT performance and super-curricular activities. Good luck.

I would also suggest picking subjects your good at/find easier to grasp and you enjoy to get the best results, because like @BankaiGintoki said, law generally doesn't have specific a-level subject requirements. Also, it might be worth looking at the uni website to see the recommended subjects.

Hope that helps:smile:
