    I'd really like to study either English literature or History at university. I've applied to study A-level English literature, English language, History, and French. I'm thinking about changing from French to Geography. I got a B in GCSE French, and an A in GCSE Geography. I was wondering which would look better/help more when applying to university? Thank you


    Take whichever you like best; it won't make a difference to the English and History degree admissions tutors. That said, if you find French harder than geography then it might be worth asking yourself if you're prepared to put in that extra bit of effort to get a good grade. Languages are hard and they often require more time and energy than other subjects.

    Omg I do English lit, Lang and French! Honestly, French really requires you to put the extra effort in (something I probably realised a little too late) but afterwards it's so satisfying! Like yeah, I get that, sort of feeling! But I would deffo go with the one you enjoy most because A-level is effort for whichever subject you choose
