    I have chosen,

    Further Maths
    Maths
    Chemistry
    Biology
    History

    I want to do either medicine or some sort of science (posibly natural science) at degree level, do these choices sound good? Some people have said Physics would be of more use to me over History, but I don't want to be one of those people who does all sciences and maths (no offence to those of you who do!), oh and I think you get to go to Russia in year 12 too if ou do history!

    I think that's a good combination. The four Maths/science subjects go well together really well (plus Maths is interchangable with Physics for medicine degrees) and History will be a nice contrast. History is one of the most respected arts subjects too, as it involves critical thinking, essay writing skills and an analytical mind. So yeah, I think those subjects are really good!

    Incidently, you seem to be scarily similar to me - I was considering History instead of German, and I too want to go into either medicine or natural sciences!

    A bit different from the rest of you!

    French
    Geography
    German
    English Literature

    I also take general studies, but hey, who counts that :p:?

    EDIT: WAIT, I just read what this post is about.... it's what you are all taking next year. Nevermind :p: But just to let you all know that what you choose now could be so different to what you really end up doing. I was going to do Psychology/Sociology instead of Eng Lit but now I'm so glad I took it!

    How do you like German at the moment? Do you find it difficult? I love learning languages but am a bit apprehensive...

    And what kind of area do you want to go into?

    Hey,
    I really like german, but on the other hand, my view is slightly biased as I enjoy learning languages :p:
    At times it's difficult, but when you get all the grammar, it just clicks and sticks. What I think I find hardest is not the german itself, but it also tests you english grammar skills and how well you can speak your own language!
    Also once you come back from the summer after GCSEs it will have been nearly 2 months and you would have probably forgotten quite a bit... we all felt a bit dumb the first few weeks back

    I reckon that you should take it because I remember you saying you really liked it in another post, and also if feel at the moment that you weren't being pushed enough at GCSE (ie. sitting in the class waiting for the rest of the class to finish lol), then you should definately take it! Also, from an employer's point of view, they love the fact that you've taken it up to A level, as they like people who can at least to some degree speak some of a foreign language.
    I'm not sure what the future holds for me... who knows?!

    Sorry for babbling :rolleyes:

    I am interested in it but I think I'm gonig to organise some work experience/shadowing first before I make up my mind on medicine. I'm not not sure how much of a social life doctors can have and whether or not their proffession eats up all their time with having to do so much studying in their own time (well, so I 'hear').
