    My final year of secondary school is approaching, and decisions must be made. I want to do English in university, but I can't decide if I want to combine it with a degree in Education or Mandarin. Mandarin has always been my second language growing up, and I got an A* on my IGCSE (Chinese as a second language). As for education, my parents would rather I studied that so that I would have a stable job.

    However, I'm unsure if I'd be any good at teaching and I have little teaching experience. I'm also taking IB Chinese B at higher level, and although I was off to a difficult start, I'm slowly but surely improving. The UCAS offers for English and Chinese are higher than the ones for English and Education.

    So which would you suggest I choose to study alongside English?
