I am thinking of taking:
And a 5th option of either English Literature or Biology.
I also have to take the Welsh Bac.
I was just wondering how hard the subjects are and which would be the most relevant for studying law.
Also, any feedback on how you found the subjects would be appreciated!

I'd say that's quite a good list. Personally I'd put History in there, and I'd choose English Lit out of that or biology. Philosophy would be really useful, and probably RS and classics too, music less so. Not sure about the reputation of RS and classics in comparison with things like History though.

I second choosing lit over biology and your choices look fine.
Uni's like traditional subjects like history but it's ultimately down to what you enjoy studying more. If you enjoy it you're far more likely to get the grades you need than if you hate it and only took it because it's respected.

I think History is a good shout and maybe an English, either language or literature would probably be useful. Philosiphy and RS sound good too I did politics and law A levels and the two overlapped quite a bit, so maybe you could consider taking politics as they went together quite well? But the best thing to do is to pick subjects you think you'll enjoy and do well in; it's a good idea to take into account what universities will think of the subject, but at the end of the day if you don't get good grades because you picked an impressive subject that's difficult or boring then they'll be less inclined to offer you a place. I hope that helps!

The choices you have opted for seem fine. However English Literature helps you with your essay skills and Law applicants will benefit from when applying for a university
