    right.. i'm starting college in September and i've already applied and my heart is set.. i'm so excited! i've applied to do Maths, law, psychology and german.. but since i realised.. I HATE GERMAN! i can't do it and i feel like if i go through with actually doing it i'll just get stressed out because i'll be the stupid one the teacher has to sit with to get me through a basic introduction to a german person. i dont even plan on going to germany! okay i know you need it for other things and languages are impressive on CVs etc but at the end of the day if its gna have me tearing my hair out i'd rather not do it. any way my interview is soon and that will be my next chance to change my german option.. but i dont know what to :|
    i don't have a particular career choice (helpful i know) in mind and theres not much else jumping out at me. i'm thinking maybe physics or biology but i really dno. i struggle now and my boyfriend does them both and when he talks about it it all seems so complicated and way out of my league.
    i think if i could then i'd pick music performing but they dont do it as an a level so i'll just have to get over that lol oh well
    any ideas? i'm open to suggestions.. even if its a course i havent mentioned but you know its good and interesting let me know
    thanks

    It entirely depends on what you want to be, and what your strengths are;
    if you want to work in law english or history would be moe useful.
    But if you plan on being a psychologist a science like biology would be better.

    hey i joined tonite too lol.

    yeh further maths isnt too bad but you probably will need an A or A* at GCSE.
    if your doing it in year 12 then some of the syllabus will need knowledge from other maths modules which you do in year 13.

    sucks i know. i jus did my first exam paper (FP1) hard when youve never done trig equations or hyberboles in your life.

    Physics and Maths go hand in hand. It'd be a waste not to take it.

    Definitely consider doing a science, then you have a really broad range of subjects which is good if you don't know what to do

    If you're looking to go for a sciencey subject at university, do biology/physics, if it's maths based, go for further maths or if you see yourself doing an arts subject pick something like english/history/philosopy or whatever.

    All I can say is, if you're having doubts about German, *do not* under any circumstances, take it as an AS! The jump is massive from GCSE and it'll take up a load of your time so you have to enjoy it!

    To be honest, you may well end up dropping your 4th subject for A2 (I dropped mine, eeww economics) so it isn't that much of a big deal, even though it might seem it now!

    This.

    English is so, so fun. It's my favourite subject by far.

    I think Biology would go with Psychology more, but I suppose Physics goes with Maths. It very much depends where your strenghts lie on the science spectrum. If you don't like German, definitely don't take it. You'll get fed up with it very quickly and won't feel like learning anything.
