    I would say keep Media. Languages are very very difficult at A level and nothing like GCSE.. Media is less of a step up.

    Ja, some peopel can pick up foreign words/phrases real easy whereas some people need to put a lot of effort into learning them and remembering them, likewise with maths, some people remember methods really easyily and put thme into practise whereas others find it harder.

    why did you hate it???
    what did oyu have to do???
    (dont worry about the exam board)
    I just found it really boring, and even though everyone says it's a 'mickey mouse' subject, I wasn't very good at it either We had to write an essay on the differences between tabloid and broadsheet newspapers, another on the representation of ethnic groups in police dramas and produce our own magazine on the computer for coursework. Then we had 2 exams, one on advertising and one on film. For each, we leant case studies in class that we could refer to in the exam, and the exams were essay-based (2 30-mark questions).

    You did it a year early though I'm sure you did better than you think, and if not, there's always next year. I sympathise about what you did in the exam; I kept answering in the wrong language in practices, but luckily didn't in the real exams.

    I didn't do German to A Level and I really regret it and I reckon a lot of ppl regret not keeping up a language. You could even do it to AS just to have and it's probably better to have than Media
