why do you knowmore spanish?
you can consider taking physics, further maths and maths, and a language.
Waiiiiiit I just remembered - I also did an AS in Critical Thinking a year early. I got a B (obviously was concentrating on my GCSEs etc), but still. Wouldn't this count as a fifth?
well you obviously enjoy french more and your french is as good as your spanish anyway... maybe you should stick with french.
Pixelated - ???? I know that Cambridge actively look for Critical Thinking skills in their prospective students, and it's worth the same as any other AS. In fact, only 75% of people get A-E in it, which is one of the worst pass rates out of all of the AS levels. Surely it would, if anything, count for more?
Thanks for the advice guys. Pixelated - I guess I'll just have to wait and see, hehe
kellywood_5 - do you reckon that Computing would 'sort of' be 'somewhere' in the area of an essay-based subject? After all, there is a project that counts for 30% of the overall grade which is completely annotated and detailed.
I would say that computers are less respected than some traditional subjects, although I am not saying that its an easy subject to take.
Congrats on the Critical Thinking - getting any AS a year early is a good achievement in itself, and though for most courses unis won't include General Studies (I don't know much about Critical Thinking so am assuming it is somewhat similar) some say a good performance in it will be taken into consideration if you fail to meet your offer. The fact you got it early will probably look impressive.
On the languages, I'd say take French - you enjoy it more, and if you got an A* in it, you're obviously just as capable as you are with Spanish.
For a fourth subject, a humanity such as History, RS or Geography would make you well-rounded, or English, Philosophy. What essay-based subjects do you enjoy?
Check with some university prospectuses and sites if they want Computing/IT so you can be sure if you need it or not.
Im sure within your A*s you are performing at different levels for different subjects. Having 10A* was never a reason to not have clear strenghts.. Just pick what you like to do. Try to stay out of the Mickey Mouse territory and you will do extremely well.
I might have missed it, but are you looking to study maths or physics or (other) at university? Nice GCSE results by the way, I would suggest maths, further maths and physics for sure, don't feel you need to do an essay based subject though, essay based subjects are flawed in their nature anyway.
Thanks for all of your help guys.
I would be doing computing (mostly programming) as opposed to ICT, which is generally looked upon as being far 'easier' in some respects.
Your replies have truly assisted me - thank you all once again!
