Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    I picked history, French, and economics for GCSEs. I am looking to study law at hopefully Oxford.

    I'm a level 7A in drama and a level 5A in French.

    After comparing the two, I feel I can't reach my maximum best grades if I go along with French.

    I'm not really good with French at all and I feel I might flop it and get something like a B which I guess some would say is this good, but in my eyes, I won't be really happy.

    Others facts about my position:

    I've heard drama helps a lot in law especially when you speak in court and in interviews (plus it shows creativity).

    I already have a language GCSE (I did it in year 7) which was Persian (my mother tongue) and I got a A in it.

    I feel that may justify me changing to drama and not getting an ebacc.

    I feel confident in drama, I find it fun and rarely easy and I know I can get a good grade in it.

    I was hoping if you guys could give me some help,.

    My biggest regret is taking French for GCSE. I was really bad at it at ks3 so I have no idea what I continued to carry it on. However if you think you can get a B I'd say go for it because B is super good. If you push yourself you can get an A as a lot of people did in my year. My only piece of advice is take subjects you can see yourself enjoying or are relevant to your career. There's nothing worse than learning a subject you do not enjoy and you tend to be worse at them anyway. Hope this helps!
