I picked creative textiles,geography and ict but my peers and language teachers say that I'm going to get nowhere without a language.
Do I really need a language to get a good job?

Not nowhere, but it is favourable over those 3.. If i were you, i would COMPLETELY avoid ICT, if you like to do computer stuff choose COMPUTER SCIENCE, ICT is terrible, its learning how to make powerpoints and pretty word documents, things i know i started in year 4. its a complete waste of time and utterly worthless, a language would do so much better for a job application..

I definitely think you should take a language, so replace that with creative textiles (which is useless imho). I was in the same stance as you that i was avoiding taking a language IGCSE because i was worried about the format of the language exam. Here I am two years later about to take my IGCSE French exam with absolutely no regrets. Trust me, the amount of knowledge and development you gain from doing a language trumps everything. Plus, you might end up loving languages like my self and continue on with it to a levels/IB. If you do so, your application will look really appealing because you'll probably be proficient in the language. Jobs are really competitive now so it is better to utilise any advantage you can get a hold of.
