If you're thinking of applying to uni for law, then do not pick law A-levels. It might sound counter-intuituve but universities, especially Law departments (i.e the professors) look down on law A-level. You really should choose more "traditional" or "academically challenging" subjects; media studies and business studies do not make that list. Now there are no particular subjects required by universities for law applicants, but law admissions tutors are looking for students who have a strong academic background. Business studies and media studies do not help to prove this. Look into choosing some essay based subjects like History and English Lit.; you can even choose Math and some sciences if you enjoy them.

Ok, here are my suggestions 1) Business Studies and Economics do not go together; it is recommended that way because universities do not regard " Business Studies and econ as 2 different A levels as their courses are pretty similar 2) The person who answered above me is right; although Law could be viable option if you want to go in that line. 3) I beilieve that you should Latin or English if you want to pursue a carrer in Law/Journalism. ( That is of course if your GCSE grades are A's and A*S in English, Maths & Science) 4) I think you should also not do Media Studies but do Maths instead because Maths would help you get into Finance (Maths and Econ), if things with Law or Journalism dont work out. 5 finally, contrary to belief please do what you want to do as a career not what you want to do because you like it or good at it.
