    Actually, more academic universities such as Oxford, LSE, UCL etc don't really care about extra curricular activities at all! In my personal statement I never mentioned one thing to do with extra curricular activities and was still given an offer.
    Omg wish i knew earlier, thats awesome - at my college we had to without choice to extra curricular activities, i used my frees to join the european youth parliament debate group and helped at the local old peoples home..

    Am abit confused on your first statement...
    Thank you for the reply.
    As someone has already replied A*A*A*A would look better than AABBB.

    You are doing maths and further maths and do well they require your time and effort.

    Find out what materials they are learning and what books they are reading and all you really need to know is the history of the monarchs, the government, spanish empire and colonies in latin america, what role they played in the world wars, famous literature.. to more modern times such as the current government and their policies and economic data.

    I think you can build on your GCSE if you are passionate about the language and as I said before travelling to Barcelona is cheap and easy to do and staying in a hostel for a week and touring and writing everything down and having a go a speaking with people and asking them things and soaking in the culture you'll be fluent and confident in no time at all.

    You could always do an exchange year to spain if you practise and pass the fluency tests.

    Plus you could do a gap year living and working in spain that will do the trick!

    -UPDATE-

    5AS levels, and 4Alevels at the end of the day (dropping one).
    Is it possible to drop maths because I will carry on with Further Maths?
    If I was to drop Spanish would I have grasped the language?
    I don't think you can drop Maths but keep FM - at least at my school, that was not an option, and it's probably the same elsewhere... make sure you ask the Maths department before finalising your A level choices.
