    Hi, my name's Ira and I'm doing French, Econ, Physics, Further Math and Math. I'm not too sure about French because my teacher will have to come to my house to teach me as our school is not offering French A-levels and my parents are super uncomfortable about that.

    My GCSE results were 8A*s and 2As!
    I'm aiming to be a software engineer/economist, and my favourite subjects are Math and Econ, and I love Physics dearly too.
    My hobbies are karate (yellow belt at the moment) and I am aiming to join a few clubs here and there to get my CV looking fresh!

    Hi guys.

    I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I am a bit unsure about my AS/A Level choices.

    So, I want to go into either Medicine (most likely) or Finance (Accountant, Actuary, Investment Banker etc.).

    I got all A*s in my GCSEs (Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Maths, Geography, Spanish, French and Latin) except for English Language and English Literature, in which I got As.

    So, for A Levels (well AS this year as soon as I start year 12), I have chosen 5 AS/A Levels:

    Chemistry
    Biology
    Maths
    Latin
    Spanish

    But I have been thinking that these may be a bit too much lately as I am seeing threads with people saying in the past to only take 4. The thing is, for Medicine, I need the Sciences and Maths, but I also really enjoy both languages so I don't know which to drop... is it worth doing all 5 subjects or will it just be too much work? And if I do 5 subjects, will I not get any free periods?

    And finally, which language is more useful, Latin, French or Spanish for Medicine/Finance? Should I swap one to Further Maths?

    Haha I know there's a lot of questions and I'm starting to really overthink the situation so I would be grateful if someone could help me out.. Thanks!

    Check before taking my advice, but I would pick a modern foreign language as you may be able to do a year abroad during your med degree (I'm not entirely sure but i did hear of someone doing that so it's worth looking into)

    This is true, some universities do offer you the experience to study abroad but you might need a MFL. Choose the language of a country you'd most like to go to, because that will probably benefit you the most.

    I'm starting college on Tuesday, the 6th, so I don't think colleges start later 😃 it depends on the school itself, tbh ;-)
