    I want to do languages at University and possibly go into international business after. However Im struggling to pick my A-levels.
    I definitely want to do Spanish and French, then either Maths/economics and P.E. My parents are totally against p.e as are many people are on the internet. So for languages will it really matter if I pick P.E ? Some people say that universities disregard it.

    Also I'm worried about maths as I don't particularly like it and thought that P.E would even it out as I love P.E

    Also Maths or economics?

    Predicted GCSE's
    English language-B
    English lit.-A
    Spanish- A*
    French- A*
    Religious studies- B
    Physical Education- A*
    ICT- C & B

    Please help as I have to fill in my forms soon

    Thank You Everyone Sorry About The Random Haphazard Questions x

    Definitely do maths. With regards to P.E., it's much better you get an A* in a weaker subject than a C in a stronger one - and of course, you're more likely to do well if you enjoy it. Your other subjects are academic enough.
    I'd reccomend carrying on all 4 to A2, though.♦
