I’m torn between these 2 atm. Which scales better? I have more interest in Drama but am unlikely to use it in the future, while legal studies seems more practical but less interesting. Legal studies also seems easier since you just have to study hard but again I’m more likely to put in more effort for Drama since I’m more interested. Really can’t decide.... any help will be appreciated!

Legal Studies scales better. However, you shouldn't choose a subject based off it's scaling. I would suggest giving Drama a go, mainly because you have said you enjoy it better. But then again, the decision is up to you.

Thank you! Do you think Legal Studies will be useful/important if I decide to study law in uni?

Yes I am a lot more interested in drama. I’m just a little hesitant to take it because (scaling aside) i dont know if i’ll be able to do well. interest =/= skill after all :”

Legal Studies isn't a prerequisite for doing law. However, it would be definitely put you ahead by a bit. It isn't an absolute necessity. I've heard the content you learn in Year 11 (the foundations) is useful for university. Whilst, Year 12 is more applying these foundations learnt in Year 11.

I would recommend taking Legal Studies in that case, if you are interested in studying Law.

Legal Studies requires synthesising concepts and applying them to certain questions. If that's your thing I would go for it.

Depends on what you really like. If you enjoy drama choose it before you will be interested in it but if you choose legal it can help you in the future, and since you don't like it it will want to push you to put more effort to get a band 6.
