I've just finished my first year of A levels at school and I'm really struggling with choosing my degree course. I study Spanish, English literature, psychology and maths. I've been predicted all B's but I would estimate my results to be ABCD respectively.
My favourite subject is and always has been Spanish. I adore languages and would happily pick up another one at uni, I was debating studying a combined degree of Spanish and Italian.
However, I also really like the idea of Speech Therapy. I work shadowed a speech therapist a couple of weeks ago and I really enjoyed the concepts and what the job entailed. I can imagine myself entering this kind of career when I'm older. What's stopping me is that I know that the course is highly competetive and I don't want to waste my time applying for a course that I'm just not good enough for!
I've decided I'm definitely going to take a gap year.
Should I just carry on with what I know I enjoy, which is languages? Or should I apply for a course which I believe I would be good at and would suit me?
Thanks so much for your help in advance.
If you need to know, my GCSE's were A*A*A*AAAAAAB

Why not a languages degree at undergraduate level plus a postgrad qualification in SLT?
