I do know that most unis aren't really hung up on non-traditional subjects, especially if you've already got 3 traditional ones, but I was saying that it depends on the uni - so best to check.

Haha yeah taking A-level Law, and then applying for law, won't help at all (although like I said, I don't think it hurts if you have 3 other regular subjects). Likewise I think Psychology does not help with Psychology, but doesn't really count you out anywhere.

My mentality still is: if you want to take a non-traditional subject, make it your fourth rather than third one. Just to be on the safe side.
