    My jan results:

    Maths 83/100 A
    Biology 118/120 A
    Physics 42/120 U (Missed half of course, retaking this summer, expecting A/B)

    GCSEs: 8A* 2A

    I've also recieved full marks for my English Lit CW, before moderation. (25/25)

    I'm planning on picking up Further Maths next year, and will probably drop Physics. However, I can't decide what to do. I like maths, but I also enjoy English and have been called an oxbridge standard student of it - my teacher says I'm the best 'raw' talent he's ever taught. However, a Maths degree will have better prospects than English. Any suggestions? :/ I've applied for the UNIQ course in English, and if I get into that I'll be able to make a far more informed decision.

    Go on open days about both subject areas you like. Look at the career prospects of both areas and see what you see yourself doing in the future. Someone wants told if you can't decide just think what job would you do even if you weren't getting paid for it.
    Hope that helps.
