Is it worth it to take Triple Science for law?

I am deciding whether to take Triple Science as a GCSE, because while I am capable, it seems like a lot of workload. Any tips would be helpful!

Hi Eloise,

This is a great question and one that is worth giving thought to around where you want triple science to take you. I did triple science at GCSE and found it an incredibly useful springboard for multiple different careers, as did my friends. I'm currently working in a professional services firm, but I know many people who did triple science who went on to study law or embark on careers related to this, such as paralegals, compliance, regulatory, risk etc.

Many top universities see triple science as a stretch-subject and therefore rate this highly on an application transcript and will be applicable to multiple degrees, such as law, given the transferrable skills you receive from this - managing workload, in-depth exploration of topics, etc. If you are nervous about the workload, I would definitely recommend having a chat to trusted teachers or tutors about what might work best for you as they can advise and share steps to help. I would also recommend taking a look at some of the study guides for each of the GCSE subjects to understand a bit more about what you will be learning and help prepare on what to expect.

This is an exciting decision to make and wish you the very best of luck!

I am not sure whether you have submitted your GCSE choices yet, but I thought I would respond anyway in case you are still considering your choices and for the benefit of other students who might be in a similar situation.

Other than English and maths there are no specific GCSEs that you need for a career in law although academic subjects such as sciences will be well regarded. Lawyers have all sorts of backgrounds. I am a lawyer and I have a languages background. I also know lawyers who have a background in science, history, music and classics.

I hope this helps and I wish you all the best with your GCSEs.

Hi Eloise,
I took 3 science GCSEs and I found that they all overlapped in the material that the teachers covered. In the end I did a law degree and the University that I went to had required the 3 science GCSEs for admission purposes.
