    ok, i'll try to keep this short. I just got AABC for my AS grades and although i'm happy with what i got, i got the C in the wrong subject. i thought i would get it in history but ended up with it in latin. However in order to do ab initio Japanese at university i really need my latin to be at least a B but preferably an A to get offers from places like Sheffield as they want a good grade in a language. I know that i would really struggle to achieve this even if i retook units as i struggle with the subject so i've been thinking that maybe a language at uni isn't such a great idea...I spoke to my school about it and they told me to drop latin as if i did i'd be predicted A*A*A (my AAB were top of the grade boundaries) therefore would be able to go to a much better uni but not for course i want. should i just give up on Japanese? my subjects are classical civ, history, english lit and latin so any pointers at other courses to look at apart from classics, english and history? I just feel really lost right now as my results were so unexpected and really not sure about what uni course to look at so any advice would be really appreciated, i never really looked at other courses so i'm hoping to find one that i'm as interested in as Japanese, thank you in advance .
